  • 1 pkt – Taco Seasoning Mix

How to Make Smoked Taco Pinwheels?

Fire up the Big Green Egg and get it dialed into around 400 degrees. This cook is best cooked with indirect heat in which the plate setter / conv”egg”tor will be inserted with the feet facing up (grate obviously on top of the plate setter).

While the Big Green Egg is heating up start out by browning about a pound of meat. Once browned be sure to drain and remove all the grease you can.

Once the meat is browned add your taco seasoning and water (quantity base on taco seasoning directions). Continue to simmer the taco meat for another 6-8 minutes until the water has reduced.

While the taco meat is simmering lay out the Pillsbury pizza crust dough. To do this I recommend laying out some parchment paper to keep it from sticking to the surface under it.

While it is good as is, I prefer a little less dough between the layers so I actually roll it out with a roller to make the dough a little thinner.

At this point, the water in the taco meat should be thinned out to barely anything. Simply layer it out on the pizza dough.

Continue with the cheese. Add a fairly even layer to the the taco pinwheel.

Now that all the ingredients are on the pizza dough its time to make it into a pinwheel. To do this, simply start rolling the dough.

Continue to roll the dough until it is completely rolled up.

Now it is time to get the taco pinwheel ready for the Big Green Egg. Take a sharp knife and cut all the way through every inch to inch and a half.

Once cut into a inch to inch and a half thick pieces place them on the side on some parchment paper. That is all there is to preparing taco pinwheels!

At this point the Big Green Egg should be fired up to about 400 degrees. Cook the taco pinwheels for about 10 – 12 minutes or until they are a nice golden brown color.

That is it, enjoy these deliciously smoked taco pinwheels. Don’t forget to serve with some sour cream as it ads some great taste to them (if you like sour cream)!
