Way back before Colby crashed and busted open his mouth, I had Taco Pizza Rolls on the menu. Since we hadn’t made the dish before, and Colby couldn’t bite into food at that time, we pushed the dish aside.
Well, his mouth is doing better, still watching a few of his teeth, but at least they are pretty much aligned again. So, we decided to bring the dish back onto the menu this week.
When I unrolled the pizza dough I thought it was way too thick, so I rolled it out.. this may have been my downfall. I also make my own taco mix. I would share the recipe, but it is sort of add a dash of this and a pinch of that. But, I wonder if I left the meat a bit chuckier than they did. When I went to roll this, there was no rolling into nice neat rolls that I could cut up.
So I baked it more like a stromboli. This didn’t prevent it from oozing everywhere, but it was better than if I’d try to cut it open.
All four of us enjoyed this. Richard wished it was spicier, but that isn’t a surprise, I can’t make it spicy or the boys won’t eat it.
Blake ate 2 pieces of it. Colby almost ate his whole slice. He picked an end and left just the space that had all crust.
If I made this again, I would use fresh pizza dough and treat it like a stromboli on purpose. I would also make sure I had more taco toppings like lettuce and tomatoes to add on when you are eating, if you so choose.
I project we will make this one again!
