This Healthy Taco Tortilla Pizza creation is another kid-friendly meal that I think the entire family will love. It’s hard not to.

I obviously don’t have kids of my own yet, but I have this laughable idea that my toddlers are going to love quinoa and kale. (They will, right?!)

Healthy Taco Pizza is a family-friendly recipe that's also really easy! #healthypizza #tacodinner #tacos

Ok, that might be a stretch and while I’m still going to hold out hope, I do know that kids like tacos. And that kids like pizzas. In fact, everyone does – adults included! So, it’s only natural that everyone should love a Healthy Taco Tortilla Pizza!

Healthy Taco Tortilla Pizza are one of those meals that are filling, tasty and pretty healthy as well! To lighten things up, I use a tortilla for the crust, which also creates built-in portion control. If you’re really concerned with the calories and fat in ground beef, by all means, swap it out for extra-lean turkey.

As the GIF below illustrates, you top the tortilla with beans, cheese, ground beef and then layer on the fresh toppings like lettuce, tomato, onion and a drizzle of sour cream. (Hot sauce is good too!)

      Thank you Karla! It’s pretty easy if you create a video and have photoshop, but there is also a really easy app that can make them out of videos, called GIFBrewery.
