Friday Night Taco Pizzas with Zucchini Ribbons

These little pizzas make for a fun Friday or Saturday night dinner with the kids.  The “crust” is a whole grain corn tortilla which makes a perfect serving size for young children.  They are topped with a homemade spicy bean spread, seasoned ground turkey, a sprinkle of cheddar cheese and plain yogurt.  You could create a pizza “bar” so the kids could assemble their own pizzas.  For additional toppings, you may want to add chopped cilantro, black olives, red bell peppers and hot sauce.

Nutrition Note:  You could easily make this a vegetarian dish by substituting shredded tofu for the ground turkey or just use the beans as your protein source.
