Ingredients

Crust

  • 875 ml to 1,000 ml (3 1/2 to 4 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 11 mL (2 1/4 teaspoons) Fleischmann’s® Pizza Yeast
  • 15 ml (1 tablespoon) sugar
  • 8 mL (1 1/2 teaspoons) salt
  • 335 ml (1 1/3 cup) of very hot water (120ºC-130ºF/50ºC-55ºC)*
  • 85 mL (1/3 cup) Mazola RightBlend oil (canola/olive oil blend)
  • Extra flour for rolling dough

Toppings

  • 125 mL (1/2 cup) salsa OR taco sauce OR salsa verde
  • 250 ml (1 cup) prepared taco meat
  • 60 mL (1/4 cup) chopped green onions
  • 500 mL (2 cups) shredded Colby-Jack cheese, grated into strands
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) coriander leaves

Instruction

  1. Remove the charcoal or preheat the gas grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Combine 2 cups flour, undissolved baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Add boiling water and oil. Mix well until smooth, about 1 minute. Gradually add enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough. The dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky. Knead the dough on a floured surface. Add more flour if necessary, until it smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.
  3. Cut dough into eight portions. Crush or roll out dough on a well-floured countertop to make 20-cm (8-inch) rounds. The circles do not have to be perfect.
  4. Gently lift each crust with your hands and place it on the grill. Bake for 3 to 4 minutes until the bottom is lightly browned and top appears firm. Using long tongs, remove crust from grill and place, toasted side up, on a platter or baking sheet.
  5. Spread 1 tbsp—salsa on the toasted side of each pizza crust. Sprinkle with 2 tbsp. Taco meat, 1 1/2 tsp. Green onions and 60 mL (1/4 cup) cheese. Repeat for each pizza crust.
  6. Gently slide each pizza onto the grill. Bake for 3 to 4 minutes until the crust’s underside is browned and the cheese has melted. Remove from grill. Sprinkle with cilantro and sour cream, if desired. Serve immediately.

Tips
