  • 8×8 baking dish
  • Flat baking pan
  • Non-stick spray
  • Pizza knife
  • Spatula
  • Mixing bowl
  • Pan or skillet for cooking the ground beef
  • Small pot for melting the cheese sauce


  • 1 can refrigerated crescent dough sheets
  • 4 oz cream cheese (½ a bar) (at room temp, if possible)
  • ½ pound ground beef
  • 2 Tablespoons taco seasoning (use a mild, medium, or hot taco seasoning packet based on preference)
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • shredded lettuce
  • sliced cherry tomatoes 
  • ½ teaspoon hot sauce (You can substitute this with 1 teaspoon of taco sauce)


  • Preheat the oven to 375° F
  • Prepare the 8×8 baking dish with non stick spray
  • Roll the crescent sheet out into the bottom of the baking dish
  • Bake the crescent sheet for 10-15 minutes until it is golden (be careful, it burns quickly, but you do want the dough cooked through so keep your eye on it!).

While the pizza crust is baking:

  • Place the cream cheese into a small pot on simmer
  • As the cream cheese begins to melt, add the taco seasoning. Stir frequently
  • Cook the ground beef and drain the fat
  • In a small mixing bowl, mix the sour cream and hot sauce (or taco sauce)
  • When the pizza crust is done baking, remove it from the baking dish and place it on a baking sheet (a spatula helps with this). *NOTE: Keep the oven on!
  • Using a spatula, spread the melted seasoned cream cheese sauce on top of the crust
  • Add the ground beef over the seasoned cream cheese sauce
  • Drizzle the sour cream mixture over the ground beef (you can do this with a spoon, or you can place the sour cream in a baggie and cut the tip to drizzle it like you would on a dessert)
  • Cover the pizza with shredded cheese
  • On the flat baking sheet, return the pizza to the oven for 3-5 minutes until the cheese topping is melted.

While the cheese topping is melting:

  • Prepare your diced tomatoes and shredded cheese
  • Optional: have other favorite taco toppings, get those ready too!
  • Remove the taco pizza from the oven, sprinkle with shredded lettuce and tomatoes
  • Slice the pizza using a pizza roller and serve hot
