Taco Flatbread Pizza is a family and budget pleaser. It’s ready in a hurry and can easily be customized for picky eaters.
I don’t know many people who dislike pizza. It’s great because there are so many ways to make a pizza that you don’t have to eat the same kind each time.
If you want to make pizza on a busy night, flatbread pizzas are the answer. No waiting on the dough and if you use smaller tortilla sized flatbreads everyone gets their own and you can set up a pizza bar.
This variation was inspired by a frozen pizza that was a favorite of mine years ago. Instead of the traditional pizza sauce I used taco sauce and topped the pizza with taco seasoned ground beef, onions, peppers, sliced black olives, and cheese.

30 minTotal Time
- 4 flatbreads
- 3/4 pound lean ground beef
- 1 1/2 cup frozen sliced onions and peppers
- 2 Tablespoons homemade taco seasoning
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup mild taco sauce
- 1 (4 ounce) can sliced olives, drained
- 1 1/2 to 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees
- Place flatbread on cookie sheets
- Plave ground beef in a large skillet over moderate heat and brown breaking the beef up while it cooks
- When the beef is mostly cooked through add the onions and peppers and taco seasoning
- Cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until the vegetables are mostly tender
- Spread 1 to 3 Tablespoons of taco sauce on each flatbread, top with the cheese, meat mixture, and olives
- Bake in the hot oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden and bubbling
- Let rest for five minutes before serving
Another tip I have for saving time and money is to stock up on bags of frozen onions and peppers. I can frequently find the store brand at a big chain near me for a dollar or less. A lifesaver during the winter months when bell peppers can be expensive.
Don’t let what I’ve used as toppings limit you. Add pickled or fresh jalapeño slices before baking the taco flatbread pizza or add Pico de Gallo or slices of avocado before eating.
