Taco Pizza & Pizza Dough Using Food Storage

Some food storage moms do their best to prepare meals, treats and snacks using nothing but their stockpile. If you’re one of these moms, then you know that an efficient stockpile is filled with canned and jarred foods. Savvy preppers also know to add spices, oils, flour, wheat, yeast, salt, freeze dried foods, etc… As long as the product has a long shelf life and tastes good enough for your picky kids to eat, you’ll add it to your food storage plan.
But, many mommy preppers believe that every good recipe requires some non-food-storage products, including frozen and refrigerated goods. Well, we’re here to prove that this isn’t always the case. We’re sharing with you a recipe for tasty taco pizza. And, to keep it all natural, we’ve added a homemade pizza dough recipe. All of the required ingredients for both recipes can be safely stored in your stockpile for long periods of time.
