So good. We use tortilla chips on top with an extra sprinkle of cheese

Made this tonite....was actually pretty good...I used tostada shells also....didn't measure the green onion, olives, salsa or tomatoes....just eyeballed them....should've used a lil more of the tomatoes....but I was pretty pleased anyway...didn't measure the cheese either....actually the only thing I really measured was the seasonings for the meat...

It was easy to make but I was surprised by family didn't like this. I may try it again with different toppings.

Soo good! I used coconut oil instead of crisco- healthy and delicious! All four kids and hubby loved it. "This pizza is reeeallly good," said my very picky 8 yr old who doesn't like to try new food. Thank you so much!

Family enjoyed it...definitely a keeper!

It had potential but the crisco was a deal breaker for us - just couldn't get rid of the taste/smell. I wish I had read the reviews first to see the recommendation of using precooked tostada shells. I will try again using those and update my review accordingly

Sounds good but is it really that much calories?!
