Go team! Score the point! Or whatever. More importantly, here’s a taco-inspired pizza that uses a quesadilla instead of a crust, and calls for RO*TEL diced tomatoes and green chilies, which adds a bold, zesty flavor you won’t be able to stop eating (seriously). I’ll give you a second to pick up your jaw from the floor, because this is pure HEAVEN.
