Taco Bell Copy Cat Pizza

April 24, 2015

Last Friday afternoon, Kevin and his friend Matthew Johnson were perusing recipes on the Internet.  They came across several recipes that looked amazing!  I couldn’t wait for Kevin to cook them.  This week, Kevin and Tabitha made this for lunch.  Thankfully, there was one leftover where I could try it, and am I ever glad they did!  Thanks to those who created this recipe!  This is Kevin’s version from http://www.food.com/recipe/taco-bell-mexican-pizza-copycat-25999.  Thank you to his supporters for backing this recipe!
