Mexican Fiesta Salad Pizza


I was finally home last night to cook dinner YAY! I have a Pampered Chef show tonight and the hostess had heard about this "Mexican Fiesta Salad Pizza" and wanted to try it out... I am kind of sick of all the recipes that I normally make at cooking shows so I was open to a change! I tested it out last night and James loved it! It was actually a lot less fattening than I thought it would be as well... A unique dinner and we really liked the crust. Here is the recipe:
2 pkgs (8 oz/235 g each) refrigerated crescent rolls (Pillsbury- I used the low fat ones)
1 1/4 lb. 93% lean ground turkey
1 1/4 cups (300 mL) medium thick and chunky salsa
1 envelope (35 g) taco seasoning mix
1 clove garlic, pressed
1 cup sour cream
2 cups thinly sliced iceberg lettuce
2 plum tomatoes, seeded & diced
2 green onions with tops, thinly sliced
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup pitted ripe olives, coarsely chopped

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll crescent dough, separate into 16 triangles. Arrange 14 of the triangles in a circle on a lightly floured round baking stone or pan with wide ends even with the edge of baking stone and points toward the center... Pretty much you just need to evenly roll out the crescent rolls over your baking sheet to create a smooth surface. Bake 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.
2. In skillet cook ground turkey over medium heat 10-12 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking turkey into crumbles... This Mix & Chop works AWESOME for ground beef, turkey, scrambled eggs or frozen juice!
3. Combine salsa, seasoning mix and garlic in medium bowl; mix well. Add to turkey in skillet and toss to coat. Spread sour cream over crust. Spoon turkey mixture over sour cream. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cheese and olives. Serve immediately with additional salsa if desired :)
