Turkey Taco Ring

  • We are all familiar with the "Pampered Chef " infamous Taco Ring.... I was craving one the other day, but because I am trying to lose weight and eat more healthy I decided I would make try and make over the recipe. 

  • 2 lbs. lean (90%) ground turkey
  • 1 can black beans (drained)
  • 1 small onion (diced)
  • Salt & pepper to taste (can use 1/2 package taco season mix)
  • 1 3/4 cups (7 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 batch of your favorite homemade pizza dough
  • 1   egg white, lightly beaten 
  • Optional toppings: salsa, shredded lettuce, chopped green pepper and tomato, sliced olives and sour cream

  • Directions:
    1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Cook ground turkey, diced onions and salt & pepper or taco seasoning mix in frying pan over medium heat 10-12 minutes or until no longer pink, drain. Add beans, 1 1/2 cups of the cheese and water. Stir until blended.
    2. Roll pizza dough out in large rectangle about 1/2 inch thick, cut into 16 triangles. Arrange triangles, slightly overlapping, in a circle on large pizza stone or round pan with the wide ends 4-in. from edge of baking stone. (Points will extend off the edge of the baking stone.) Roll wide ends of dough toward center to create a 5-in. opening.
    3. Spoon filling evenly over dough in a continuous circle. Bring points of triangles up over filling and tuck under dough at center to form a ring. (Filling will show.) Brush with egg white. Bake 20-25 minutes, Sprinkle with
      remaining cheese and finish baking for another 5-10 minutes or until golden brown. Place toppings in the center
      and Serve.
