Crescent roll pizza topped off with all the best taco toppings! Perfect football food or appetizer for a get together! #snacks #appetizers #footballfood #tacos

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – when it comes to football, I’m only here for the food.

I could care less about the men on the tv running around in circles, but I am highly interested in what kind of dip you might have setting out for me try.

Not interested in the score, but super into testing out those grape jelly meatballs in your crockpot.

Please don’t even tell me what teams are playing, just give me the recipe for that Mexican cheese dip!

I think you get the picture.

Anyway, this taco pizza is much like my veggie pizza and fruit pizza, but this time with taco flavors!

It’s so easy since it starts with crescent roll dough and it’s easy to customize with whatever toppings you like.

How to make crescent roll pizza:

You can start one of two ways with this recipe.

Either buy a couple tubes of the crescent dough sheets and roll them out into a half sheet pan or buy a couple tubes of the regular crescent dough.

If you buy the regular crescent dough, you’ll just have to pinch the seams together. Easy peasy and either option works.

The dough sheets can be harder to find and often seem to be sold out, but that’s what I grab when I see them. Otherwise, I just pinch the regular crescent dough together and call it good.

You’ll bake up the crescent dough until it’s just ever so lightly golden brown and then let it cool completely.

creamy topping for taco pizza

To make this into a taco pizza, we’re going to combine some cream cheese and sour cream with a little taco seasoning and spread that creamy goodness over the top of the crescent roll crust.

Once that’s done, you’ll just start layering on your taco toppings.

I whipped up a standard taco meat (ground beef + a packet of taco seasoning) and added in some diced greeand then topped things off with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, cheddar, black olives, and some cilantro. You can add whatever you like!

Such an easy snack and everyone loves it!
