Mexican Fiesta Salad Pizza

Tacos are a quick, easy summertime meal.  Instead of piling up those favorites on a taco shell that usually falls apart and makes a delicious mess, try it on a pizza!

While the dough is baking, make the beef filling, get all the condiments ready and your done!

You will need:  
  • 2 pkgs. refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1-1/4 lbs. 93% lean ground beef or turkey
  • 1-1/4 cups medium thick and chunky salsa
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning mix
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups thinly sliced iceberg lettuce
  • 2 plum tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 2 green onions with tops, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup pitted ripe olives, chopped (optional)
Preheat oven to  375 degrees F.  Unroll crescent dough; separate into 16 triangles.  Arrange the triangles in a circle on a pizza pan or baking stone with wide ends even with the edge of the pizza pan.  Pinch seams to seal.  Bake 15-18 minutes.

In a skillet, cook ground beef or turkey over medium heat until no longer pink, breaking meat into crumbles.

Combine salsa, seasoning mix and garlic and add to beef in skillet.  Toss to coat.  Spread sour cream over crust.  Spoon beef mixture over sour cream.  Top with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cheese and olives (if using).
