So my family absolutely loves Mexican food...this may be more like taco bell food...but none the less, they love it. I came across this on Pinterest of course and had to try it out. Thanks to Culinary Couture this will now be on my food list to make again, and again, and again! Instead of a crunchy tortilla round I used Nacho Cheese Doritos on the inside and it was amazing! Reminds me of a Doritos Locos Taco...mmm mmm mmm! To view the recipe please check it out here.
So, if you love Mexican food, please do try this, you will not regret it!

My new addiction...Pinterest...sigh. Yesterday I went to someone's board and re-pinned over 100 of his food pins. Pathetic I know...but they looked oh so yummy! Since I did that I had to make something new and I am so glad that I did, so is my family! This pizza crust is sooooo easy to make and it tastes wonderful. I did not have self rising flour so I made my own. It ended up being for of a thin crusted pizza but it was so good that my "thick crust only" husband had a bunch of pieces and said we definitely have to keep using this recipe ;) I love it when I get comments like that! For my husband and the girls I made a pepperoni pizza with Old School Pizza Sauce which is the best pizza sauce I have ever had in my life...
I have made it multiple times and will keep making it. For myself I made a Garlicky Cheese and Tomato pizza which was divine and I will be making this again on Friday for a game night with friends and everyone is bringing a homemade pizza...I wonder where that idea came from....la la la...anyways, on to the simplest pizza dough recipe ever!
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup of Greek or natural yoghurt
Extra flour for dusting the board
In a bowl, combine the flour and yoghurt and bring together to form a ball. Turn out onto a floured board to knead and roll. Knead for 5-8 minutes. Roll into a pizza shape and add toppings.
This quantity is suitable for one pizza. If the dough seems a little wet when you mix it, just add a sprinkling more flour. The more you knead it the better it comes together. I thought in the beginning that there was no way this will work but as I kneaded it, the dough became pliable and stretchy.
Pizza dough recipe found on Kidspot.
