Turkey Taco Pizza



1 whole wheat pizza crust
3/4 lb. ground turkey, lean
2 green onions, chopped
1 pkg. taco seasoning
4 mini bell peppers, chopped
1 c. shredded reduced cheddar cheese
1/2 c. fresh cilantro
1/2 c. Queso Fresco, crumbled
2 small tomatoes, seeds and core removed, chopped
*hot sauce, optional

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lay the pizza crust out on a flat surface. Spread the cheddar cheese out on the bottom of the crust. In a medium skillet, on medium heat, cook the ground turkey and green onion together until the turkey is no longer raw, stirring frequently (around 3 minutes). Add in the taco seasoning and stir together until everything is mixed well. Spread the meat out evenly on top of the cheese, followed by the bell pepper, tomato and Queso Fresco. Bake for 8-10 minutes directly on the rack in the oven (watch closely, they cook fast and the crust can start to burn in a second!). Top with cilantro after cutting into slices, and a few dashes of hot sauce for the brave ones!
