Taco Pizza Rolls

These Taco Pizza Rolls are made with taco meat and cheese rolled up in pizza dough. Another twist on Taco Tuesday! Set up a toppings bar and let your guests get in the action and add their own toppings. 

I was brainstorming dinner ideas and thought why not do a Mexican version of these Pizza Rolls? Taco Pizza Rolls! I tried a couple of different versions. I like to complicate things. I tried a version with crescent dough, a cream cheese/salsa sauce, taco meat, and cheese. Sounds good, right? Well, the crescent dough was too soft to handle the wet filling and although the flavor was good, I decided I needed to simplify things. My next version I made with just taco meat and cheese and decided that any other toppings could go on top. They were a total hit!

Serves: 18 taco rolls


  • ½ lb ground beef
  • 1 can Pillsbury refrigerated classic pizza crust
  • 2 tablespoons Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix (from 1-oz package)
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • Optional toppings: lettuce, tomato, sour cream, onion, and guacamole


  • Preheat oven to 400 ° and lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • In a medium skillet, cook and brown beef until no longer pink. Drain. Add taco seasoning and water and cook for 2-3 minutes. Set aside and cool slightly before using.
  • Take pizza dough out of its package and unroll it onto a flat surface. Slightly roll or press the pizza dough out into a rectangle.
  • Add the taco meat evenly on top of the pizza dough. Sprinkle the cheese evenly on top.
  • Starting with the long edge of the pizza dough, roll dough tightly up into a roll. Using a serrated knife, make about 1-inch slices along the roll, making about 18 rolls.
  • Place rolls on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
  • Serve immediately and top with desired toppings.

  • Enjoy it.. !! ^_^
