Step 1:

Place a pan over medium-high heat and once it’s hot, add the ground beef. Break it apart as much as you can. Add a large pinch of salt and continue to break them apart as it browns for about 5 to 6 minutes.

Step 2:

Add the onion and garlic and cook until translucent. After that, add the spices/herbs and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes or until fragrant.

Step 3:

Add the tomato sauce, stock, brown sugar, vinegar, and a pinch of salt. Stir, bring it to a simmer, then turn the heat to low. Continue to cook for about 20 minutes or until the liquid has reduced. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.

Step 4:

Make the crust. Add all dry ingredients and olive oil to a food processor. Blend while adding water until it is well incorporated and forms into a ball. Transfer it to your work surface and knead for about 2 minutes.

Step 5:

Cut the dough ball into 2, then roll each into a ball. Cover and let it proof at room temperature for 30 minutes. Press and roll out the dough into an 11-12″ diameter circle.

Step 6:

Make the sauce. Get a large container and put all of the sauce ingredients in. Mix with an immersion blender until well combined.

Step 7:

Pour 3 spoonfuls of sauce onto the crust and spread evenly. Add a generous amount of shredded cheese, taco meat, black olives, green onion, diced tomatoes, and chopped jalapenos.
