Clean Eating Taco Pizza Recipe with Spicy Marinara Sauce

Clean Eating Taco Pizza Recipe with Spicy Marinara Sauce

I first tried taco pizza about 20 years ago when I was working for a lawyer and his wife suggested we get taco pizza from Pizza Hut. I had never heard of such a thing. It’s not on the menu, but apparently – at least at that time at that Pizza Hut in Casper, WY – they would make it for you on request. It was so good. I still don’t understand why they don’t make it a regular menu item.

I like to make it at home regularly because well, I don’t like most pork meats. I don’t like sausage, pepperoni or ham. Plus, those things really aren’t all that healthy. Plus, it’s fun to have a variety of food. I think as a general rule, that ground beef is a lot healthier than the cured meats I mentioned above and, because of the spices, this has a lot of flavor so you don’t miss the more fattening meats.
