Pretty brilliant combining two of my favorite foods pizza and tacos, this one is definitely a MUST make!
 
This Mexican Pizzas can be whipped up for a quick weeknight dinner. I use my cast iron skillet to fry the tortillas, and then bake them on this sheet pan. Flour tortillas layered with beans and taco meat then topped with sauce, cheese and all your favorite toppings. Put a dollop of sour cream or salsa . Mmmm Perfection!!
