  6. Drain any excess grease from the skillet and stir in the taco seasoning, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  7. Spread the taco meat evenly over the pizza crust, leaving a small border around the edges.
  8. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the taco meat.
  9. Bake the pizza in the preheated oven according to the instructions for your pizza dough, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Remove the pizza from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
