Taco Pizza Ring

Taco Pizza Ring because Ken loves tacos, Patti loves pizza and we both love this recipe. We used crescent rolls instead of pizza crust and cooked it to perfection on our Green Mountain Grills Pizza Oven. This was a fun one that got lots of ahs and awes from our friends over for dinner.

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme.  Wood Pellet Patio Heater, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

Note: Texas Steak Warehouse provided us with the hamburger used in this recipe and we thank them. They don’t sell hamburger in the states because it’s hamburger you can get anywhere with no shipping charges.

They carry hamburger to ship to our troops overseas. In some APO’s our American Heroes can put together some kind of grill and enjoy a little love from home. I know when I was in the Army what I missed most was a Hamburger. I think this is Awesome!

If you have someone overseas you want to send some love or just to thank them you can contact Texas Steak Warehouse at or (833) 429-1241. They will never forget it or you.

Our Ingredients


Cooking Directions: Taco Pizza Ring

In a medium Dutch oven cook hamburger with the taco seasoning, onions, peppers and garlic until meat is no longer pink. Drain.

Preheat you GMG pizza oven. I have found that if I set my grill temp to 285*(140c) I get a stone temp of 585* that is great for pizza.

You need to use a pizza pan for this one. Spray your pizza pan with a cooking spray. (We used Duck Fat) Unroll the crescent rolls and arrange on a pizza pan with the wide ends overlapping and the points out like a sun burst. We placed a bowl upside-down in the center of our dough to serve as a guide for adding the filling.

Build a ring of meat around the bowl. Then place the cubed cheese, pressing it into the meat. The rule I have about cheese is “Use it like someone else is paying for it” in other words I like to really pile it on. But, do this to your taste.

Remove the bowl and fold the dough back over the meat ring. When done you will have a nice pocket in the middle of your ring. We filled the with more meat and cheese. Topped with the green chilis and MORE CHEESE!!!

Into the pizza oven, I turned it every 2 minutes for about 6 minutes. Toasted nicely and the cheese melted beautifully…  

To serve we topped the center with our “Wholly Guacamole” a nice zesty guacamole.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also, you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke, so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can do our recipes on any grill, even some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion and Do What you Love,
Ken & Patti
