    Taco pizza dreams and..

    I have so missed Taco Supreme pizza from happy Joe’s restaurant( most of them closed in the in the upper Midwest. I never looked into why, but my wife and I have kept trying various examples, always with disappointment. So tonight, I took it on, well, I started the crust on Saturday, and made a pepperoni pizza as well. Really happy, so is my wife, we both feel that finally we have a taco pizza supreme to enjoy.

    When I worked at a pizza joint as a kid we did one that was pretty good it had beans instead of sauce and looked like your first pic.

      So crazy you had said that. I had told my wife, the only thing missing was a bit of refried beans down first.

    Awesome looking crust. Care to share your crust recipe?

      The crust recipe is from the book The Pizza Bible. I used a KIng Arther - Sir Lancelot High Gluten flour. I don’t feel comfortable giving out the exacts, but I have found the book worth it’s weight. I have not made to many of the pizzas, but, the crusts are worth it for sure!

    Great work and of course the photos are excellent.




        I miss great Taco Pizza. We had a bar back in the day where I grew up that made the best Taco Pizza. What made it awesome was they made a Taco flavored beef sausage and sliced that up and used that on the pizza.

        And the best thing was they were open 24 hours and delivered 24 hours a day also. Nothing better than a great Taco Pizza at 2:00 AM when you are 20 years and old drunk off your ass.



          that last picture, the side view of the crust needs to be in the pizza hall of fame. if the taco toppings came out half as good as that crust you had a great pizza. Well done sir.

            It really was great, from the first bite. My wife agreed. So happy to have this pizza in my line up.

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
