Taco Pizza

After finding flatout bread, I couldn't wait to try it out. If you haven't figured it out yet, I love mexican food. I grew up in San Diego, and it was pretty much a staple growing up. You had BBQs with burgers and hot dogs? We had BBQs with marinated carne asada steak and grilled chicken, tortillas, refried beans, fresh guacamole (with avocados from our yard), and salsa. And those of you on the east coast are seriously missing out on the opportunity to party on Cinco de Mayo (literally translated "the fifth of May"). Anyway, my mom used to make taco pizza using those Boboli crusts. I decided to have a go at using the flatout bread to do the same and YUMMY! Recipe, photos, and nutritional info below. Enjoy, Jo (aka gastricsleeve4me)

Taco Pizza
  • Flatout bread
  • 1/2 lb ground turkey
  • Taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup fat free refried beans
  • Shredded cheese (I'm migrating back to full fat cheese...the fat is worth the flavor for me)
  • Plain greek yogurt and/or avocado for garnish
Brown ground turkey with taco seasoning per the seasoning's directions (make sure to check seasoning serving size...most are made for 1 LB of ground meat, and I use half of that). Set aside.

Spray bottom of flatout bread and put on baking sheet. Coat with refried beans. Sprinkle browned/cooked ground beef. Add additional seasonings (I added chipotle spice and Cholula Hot Sauce). Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 15 minutes at 375 degrees

Slice flatout bread into 6 "squares" and serve with plain greek yougrt and avocado. Or mix the two using my creamy guacamole recipe. For me, one square is a serving and all I can eat at nine weeks out. Pop the rest in the fridge for leftovers!

  1. Thanks for your blog, I had vsg on June 5, 2012. Your buffalo bites were my first truly wls friendly post-op meal. Finding you gave me some good recipes, and led me to egg face and Emily bites. The three of you have made my family's journey much more enjoyable. Don't give up, you have a fan! Thanks.
