Special Wishes for Holiday Week Menu

It was a vote… No Bake Cookies and Taco Pizza


Taco Pizza (Thank you Pioneer Women)


1 package of Betty Crocker Pizza Crust Mix (or similar brand)

1/2 Cup Hot Water (not boiling water)

Taco Toppings*

STEP#1. Heat oven to 450°F use parchment paper and grease with a little puddle of oil

STEP#2. Stir Pizza Crust Mix and hot water until all mix is moistened. Cover; let stand 5 minutes.

STEP#3. Press dough into 12-inch circle (or divide to make two smaller pizzas) on the greased parchment paper. If the dough is sticky, put some flour on your hands while pressing the dough into a circle. Add the black beans and cheese.

STEP#4. Bake 12 to 17 minutes on lowest oven rack until crust is golden brown.

STEP#5. After baking it, add the lettuce, tomatoes, and crushed taco chips. Drizzle with sour cream mixture.(Put the sour cream mixture in a large plastic bag, nip off the corner of the plastic bag and drizzle it over the pizza.)

Hint-to make it extra yummy, brush the crust with garlic butter after baking and sprinkle it with some parmesan cheese.


Black Beans-one can- Put into a sauce pan. Don’t drain-add 1 tablespoon taco seasoning, heat with medium heat, mash with a potato masher and cook to reduce the liquid. Stir occasionally. They will resemble the texture of refried beans.

Monterey Jack OR taco blend shredded cheese

Head lettuce or iceberg lettuce Thinly sliced greens(Thinly sliced greens are called a chiffonade-that’s French for ribbons or rags. Roll the lettuce into a tight roll and slice thinly.)

Tomatoes fresh-diced small

Sour Cream with some hot sauce mixed in

Taco Chips-crushed a little

Other options you might enjoy-cilantro, avocado, salsa, taco sauce, cooked hamburger, sausage, or chicken.
