1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed (hint: Put it on wax paper sprayed with cooking spray and leave it alone for at least 4 hours.)
1 lb ground turkey
1 Tbsp olive or canola oil
1 package taco seasoning
12 to 16 oz jar of salsa (or make your own Bonus recipe pg. 23)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Optional garnishes: lettuce, chopped tomato, black olives, sour cream, extra cheese, avocado. (Remember the grocery store salad bar can be your friend.)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Roll out dough to fit a pizza pan or a 9 x 13 baking sheet, sprayed with cooking spray. Who says a pizza has to be round? (hint: Sprinkle the pan with 1 Tbsp of cornmeal for that authentic pizza parlor crunch.)
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, add turkey and cook until browned, stirring to crumble.
Add taco seasoning and salsa.
Simmer for about 5 minutes to blend seasonings.
Top dough with turkey mixture, then top with cheese.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
Serve with any garnishes you choose.
