Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, stir the dough mix together with the required water (check the package) until well combined. Let rest for at least 10 minutes, or up to 2 hours (one hour or more is ideal).
Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef, breaking it up with your spoon. Add the taco seasoning and cook until the meat is cooked through. If using a fattier meat, add the taco seasoning after draining off any grease and cook for a couple of minutes more.
Spread the dough out over a well greased pizza pan. Spread the beans over the dough and top with the taco meat and shredded cheese.
Bake at 350° for 20 minutes, or until the crust is cooked through.
Let cool 5 minutes, then top with lettuce, tomatoes, taco sauce or salsa and a dollop of sour cream.
Dough is best if you prepare it an hour or more before baking the pizza.Other toppings options include diced avocado, chopped cilantro and sliced olives.
