Taco Pizza

This is semi homemade. I used to make my own crust but for a time saver I started buying it. I buy a two pack crust and it feeds my family of 5. So the option is yours and I leave it up to you.

1 lbs. ground turkey or beef
1 chipotle pepper, chopped with a TBS of adobo sauce
1 cup. cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 c. onion, chopped
small can sliced black olives
1 small green or red pepper, chopped

Preheat oven according to package directions on crust. I have 2 baking stones that I preheat before I place the pizzas on them for a more crispy crust. Sprinkle cornmeal on the stones so the crust won't stick. By the time the oven is preheated your stones will be ready to go.
Cook your ground turkey until done. Drain off excess fat. Add your chopped chipotle pepper and adobo sauce to meat. Omit this part if you don't like spicy but it adds great flavor. I usually add more than this but to keep it on the milder side just add what is called for here. Add approx. 2 TBS of soy sauce, 1 TBS of hot sauce, and a 1 tsp. of chili powder. Now you can adjust this to your heat level tolerance. Mix this all up until combined. Remove from heat.
Divide meat mixture up between both crusts. Add your toppings. I grate my own cheese because it is so much cheaper then buying it already grated. Think about this if you are trying to save money. It doesn't take that much time either.
Place crusts on the preheated stones and cook for approx. 12-14 mins. or what your packaged crust says.
