Pizza Tacos

It is a rare day to find flights for under $300, even more so under $200, but yesterday was one of those days and I snatched it up as fast as I could confirm the time and place of events for that weekend. This flight purchase was for my friend Amber’s wedding in October, another of which I am a bridesmaid! The flight actually ended up being free because I had accrued enough miles to do so. I should have signed up for the Amex Delta Skymiles CC a long time ago. Imagine all the free flights, free 1st checked bag, and group 1 seating I could have been enjoying all these years!

But anywho, to go along with the theme of frugality, here is a pizza taco recipe that I was able to make almost without a trip to the grocery store. Lately I have been trying to cook more with the items I already have stocked, and surprisingly for this meal I had every ingredient on hand except for the ricotta. That goes to show how well stocked my kitchen is for a girl living with no one else besides her cat. Sometimes I try to estimate how long I could survive without leaving my home, and appreciate that I do not need to test it for real because I covet fresh fruit far too much.

P.S. This recipe is a great, quick weeknight meal!

PIZZA TACOS

Serves 4

Ingredients:

1/2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided

12 oz. (~3 links) sweet Italian turkey sausage, casings removed

1/2 to 1 tsp crushed red pepper

1/2 cup mini turkey pepperoni

1/4 tsp dried oregano

1 cup low sodium pizza sauce

8 corn tortillas

3/4 cup 2% mozzarella cheese, shredded

1/2 cup low fat ricotta cheese

1/4 cup fresh basil, thinly sliced

Directions:

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the pepperoni and oregano and cook until the pepperoni is crisp around the edges, about 1 minute. Stir in the pizza sauce and bring to a simmer and cook 5 more minutes.
  2. Warm the tortillas as the label directs. Divide the sausage mixture among the tortillas. Top with the mozzarella, ricotta and basil.
