Taco Pizza on Lebanese Bread

Over the Memorial weekend, my husband I and went north to Minneapolis. We had a wonderful weekend just the two of us. 

That doesn't happen very often, but our girls went south towards Des Moines to visit with their sister for the weekend, and they took the pooch!


So we had 3 full days all to ourselves, at first it was like, gosh, what do we do?

We were packed in a flash and heading up to the Twin cities in no time. I had been dying to go up and visit the Global Market that I had read about and even saw featured on the Food Network. 

On the way there we drove right by the "dollar house" that Nicole Curtis of the Rehab Addict on HGTV had remodeled!!

Inside the Global Market were lots of different stalls offering Mexican, Italian, Greek, and Middle Eastern foods. There was also a Middle Eastern market and I picked up 2 different kinds of Lebanese flat and pocket bread. 

And of course one of the first things I made turned out awesome. Taco pizza is one of my family's favorites and it comes together in a snap, plus I had avocados to use. The bread made a beautiful crisp crust and it browned  nicely.
