We’ve been celebrating taco Tuesday for awhile now (it breaks up the week and is fun for the kiddos.) I was running out of taco ideas. We’ve gone through beef, steak, fish, soft, and hard. So I thought maybe a little taco pizza might throw the family for a loop. They loved it. Good stuff I tell ya!!!!
Brown the ground beef and combine with taco seasoning as directed. I add onions and cilantro into the mix. Cover the pizza crust with a small amount of taco sauce and refried beans. Add the beef and place in the oven for 10 minutes on 450 degrees. When done add a layer of cheese until melted. Cut up all pizza like and let everyone add the toppings as they like.

1 pound large Shrimp (I used a kilo)
1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
1 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 (14.5 ounce/400g) can diced tomatoes with juices
1 cup dry white wine
3 garlic cloves chopped
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
3 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
In a medium bowl, toss the shrimp with 1 teaspoon of the salt and the red pepper flakes. In a large, heavy skillet, heat the oil over a medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and saute until just cooked through (about 2 minutes). Using a slotted spoon transfer the shrimp to a large plate and set aside. Add the onion to the same skillet and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, wine, garlic and oregano, simmer until the sauce thickens slightly (about 10 minutes). Return the shrimp & any accumulated juices to the tomato mixture and toss to coat. Remove from the heat and stir in the parsely and basil. Season with more salt to taste. Spoon into shallow bowls and serve.
