Ingredients & Cooking


  • 1 pound Ground Beef (75% to 80% lean)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons finely chopped pickled jalapeño pepper slices
  • 3/4 cup prepared thick-and-chunky salsa
  • 1 package (14 to 16 ounces) thick or thin prebaked pizza crust
  • 3/4 cup prepared nacho cheese and salsa dip
  • 1/3 cup pickled jalapeño pepper slices


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add ground beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Pour off drippings. Season with salt. Stir in finely chopped jalapeños and salsa.
  2. Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160ºF. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
  3. Place pizza crust on pizza pan or large baking sheet. Spread dip evenly on crust, leaving 1-inch border around edge. Top evenly with beef mixture and jalapeño slices.
  4. Bake in 450°F oven 12 to 15 minutes or until edge of crust is deep golden brown. Cut into 8 wedges.
