Taco Pizza

Quick- you have 8 very hungry 19 year olds coming over in 30 minutes for dinner. What on earth do you make that will feed the masses in a short amount of time? Taco pizza of course! Thanks to Real Mom Kitchen I found a great recipe that is very simple to make and quite delicious. Our guests were happy to eat 2-3 large pieces each. They told me to put this new recipe on the blog, so here it is:

1 lb. ground turkey (or beef if you prefer)
1 envelope low- sodium taco seasoning mix
2 (8 oz.) cans Pillsbury reduced-fat crescent rolls
1 (16 oz.) can refried beans
2-3 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
1 chopped roma tomato
4 green onions, chopped

Brown ground turkey meat and drain. Add in the taco seasoning mix. Follow the directions on the packet and then let simmer on very low heat.
Pre-heat the oven to 375
Roll out the crescent rolls into rectangles and place in a slightly greased jelly roll pan. Bake for 10 minutes or until the bread is golden brown.
Chop the tomato and green onions.
Microwave the refried beans in a microwave safe container. Stir and spread on top of the warm crust creating a small layer. Add the meat to create a layer on top. Top the meat with the cheese. Now add the tomatoes and green onions. Serve hot.

If you don't mind, can you submit your Taco Pizza photo in ?
It's a food photography site full of all DIY food pictures from members around the world. Or perhaps you'd like to submit by yourself? Let me know when you did, so I can share it.
