Steps To Make Fiestada Pizza

Fiestada Pizza recipe
  1. Set the oven to preheat mode at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. In a large skillet, add ground beef and sprinkle some taco seasoning on it. Cook it over medium-high flame until it turns brown and crumbly. It will take 5-7 minutes. Discard the grease left in the skillet after cooking beef.
  3. Take pizza dough and cut it in half. Now flatten each half into a thin crust and place it on a nonstick baking sheet.
  4. Bake it in the oven for 3 minutes. Take the pizza out after 3 minutes but do not turn off the oven.
  5. Mix pizza sauce, salt and cumin in a bowl. Spread half of this mixture on each pizza. Sprinkle beef and cheese on top of this mixture.
  6. Bake again for 10-12 minutes until the cheese melts and the crust turns crunchy.
  7. Serve hot.

You can top the pizza with other toppings like jalapenos, olives or any other topping of your choice. Once you make this pizza at home, I can vouch that you will never buy pizza from pizzerias or any frozen pizza. If you want it to have a dash of spiciness, then serve this pizza with a Calabrian sauce. And see how great this combination turns out.
