Ingredients

  • 4 pieces of plain naan, or 8 pcs mini naan
  • 1 can refried beans, or about half a jar of black bean dip
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 packet taco seasoning mix or equivalent homemade taco seasoning
  • 2 cups 8 oz shredded cheddar or cheddar-jack
  • Taco bar toppings of choice, such as: Sour cream, diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, black olives, green onions, cilantro, chopped avocado, salsa...

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place naan on two rimmed baking sheets and pre-brown at 400 degrees for three minutes, then remove baking sheets from the oven.
  2. Meanwhile, brown the ground beef and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat, breaking it up as you go, until meat is browned and cooked through. Drain beef, then stir in the taco seasoning and saute over medium heat for another minute or until nicely incorporated (omit the water that's called for on the package, to avoid a soggy pizza).
  3. If using refried beans, place them in a small bowl and microwave for about a minute, until spreadable. (If using a thinner black bean dip, you can skip the microwaving step.) Spread each piece of naan with refried beans or black bean dip to taste, then top each with an equal amount of the seasoned ground beef.
  4. Top each taco pizza with shredded cheese and bake for 12-13 minutes (switching oven racks halfway through), or until cheese is nicely melted and beginning to brown.
  5. Remove taco naan pizzas from the oven and add your favorite taco toppings.

Recipe Notes

For the shredded lettuce shown here I just chopped up part of a bag of garden salad, which got me a little of the pretty purple cabbage, too. Find an easy homemade taco seasoning recipe here, and adjust the spice level to your own family's taste.
