Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°. Combine 2-1/2 cups flour, cornmeal, salt and yeast. In another bowl, combine 1-1/4 cups warm water and honey. Gradually add dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Do not knead. Cover; let rest 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small skillet over medium heat, cook and stir beef, crumbling meat, until no longer pink; drain. Add taco seasoning and remaining water. Cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  • Press dough to fit a greased 13×9-in. baking pan. Combine beans and taco sauce; spread over dough. Top with beef mixture and cheese. Bake on a lower oven rack until crust is golden and cheese is melted, 15-18 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. If desired, serve with optional toppings.
