Carne Asada and Roasted Corn Taco Pizza
This pizza is sure to satisfy your taco and pizza cravings all in one. I use bold Tex-Mex flavors like roasted corn, char-grilled beef, mozzarella cheese, black beans, tomatoes, and bell peppers. Add cilantro for an extra pop of flavor and jalapeño slices for spice.
- 4 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 lime juiced
- 1 orange juiced
- 2 ounces tequila
- 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
- ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
- ½ cup sliced red onion
- 1 ½ to 2 pounds flat iron steak flap steak, or skirt steak
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 package pizza dough recommend Wewalka Classic Pizza Dough
- 3/4 cup pizza sauce
- 1 6 ounce package Simple Truth mozzarella cheese shredded
- 1 15 ounce can Simple Truth black beans
- 2 roasted corn on the cob sliced from the cob
- 1 green bell pepper thinly sliced
- 1 tomato sliced
- 1 jalapeño sliced (optional)
In a bowl, combine the butter, lime juice, orange juice, tequila, garlic, cilantro, and onion and mix well.
Place steak in a large Ziploc bag and pour the marinade over steak. Zip up the bag and massage marinade around so that the steak is well covered. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes or in the refrigerator for up to 2 hours.
Preheat a grill or grill pan to high. Remove the steak from the plastic bag and season with salt and pepper. Grill the steak for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest 10 minutes, and then slice the steak against the grain into 1/2-inch pieces.
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Unroll refrigerated pizza dough and place with parchment paper onto baking sheet. Spread pizza sauce evenly over top of crust and top with cheese, black beans, sliced carne asada, roasted corn, bell peppers, tomatoes, and jalapeño, if using.
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly. Top with fresh cilantro. Slice and serve.
Charring the corn adds a lot of flavor, so be sure not to skip this step! If you don't have access to a grill or a gas cooktop, you can roast your corn in the oven using the broiling function.
If you do have a grill, you can also use it to bake your pizza so you don't heat up the house!
