Mexican Pizza

30 min


This meal is the perfect combination of two classics: tacos and pizza. It's super quick and wonderfully filling, with just the right kick of spice. The cilantro yogurt mayo sounds like a crazy idea, but it's the best creamy and delicious topping on this comforting pizza.

  3. Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C). Lightly brush the top of the pizza crusts with some (optional) oil, then spread over the tomato paste.
  4. Divide the veggie ground mixture over the pizzas, and add the bell pepper, onion, corn, jalapeños, and tomatoes. Bake in the centre rack of the oven for 12 - 15 minutes, or until the crust is lightly golden.
  5. Meanwhile, make cilantro sauce by mixing the ingredients in a small bowl.
  6. When the pizza is done, top it with dollops of the yogurt sauce, some sliced avocado, and sliced green onions. Enjoy!

Omg, it is sooo good! My boyfriend loved it so much, so the pizza was gone in about 5 min :-D The next day he asked me to make it again.
Btw, I made pizza dough by myself by following PUL recipe, as I didn’t want to use readymade crust. I just baked it in the oven for about 5 min before adding all the toppings.

PUL Team - Jan. 9, 2024, 7:49 a.m.

Woohoo! A lovely idea to make your own crust too, Julia - thanks for taking the time to share the glowing review 🙌

Joey & Sharona von den hoff - Dec. 3, 2023, 11:32 p.m.

Made it twice in one week because it's so good

Tasted great and it was ready in 20’. The yoghurt dip really works well with it. We used a vegetable pizza crust to add even more veggies to this dish. Just great.

Danielle - Oct. 17, 2023, 1:53 a.m.

Another winner. I used Naan bread and black beans (mashed) as base. This will be a monthly meal.

Sarah - Sept. 29, 2023, 6:41 p.m.

One of the first recipes my non vegan husband has tried. He loves it !

PUL Team - Sept. 30, 2023, 12:09 a.m.

Whoop whoop! Hopefully the first of many, Sarah 😉

Amulya - July 2, 2023, 2:52 a.m.

We have made this pizza so many times, it’s become our favorite now. We invited our friends over and they loved this pizza and we shared your recipe 💕

Robyn - July 1, 2023, 2:45 p.m.

We had friends for dinner and everyone loved this dish, especially the yogurt dressing! Never disappointed with Pick up Limes.

Juan Carlos Vega - May 7, 2023, 12:47 a.m.

Love it. Thank you for the inspiration. Im going to make it with the ingridients found down here. Thanks

PUL Team - May 7, 2023, 1:27 a.m.

We hope you enjoy it, Juan!

Viktoria - April 13, 2023, 5:18 p.m.

10/10 - what an absolute treat that was. Since I don't like cilantro, I mixed a little bit of a store bought paprika salsa with the mayo and joghurt and skipped in adding salt, since the salsa already is salted. It paired really well with the mexican flavours.

PUL Team - April 13, 2023, 11:19 p.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Viktoria, thank you 😃

Martin - April 26, 2022, 7:02 a.m.

If I make this with a pizza stone and the dough recipe that is also on this website, should I follow the instructions outlined in this recipe, or the instructions that are written on the dough recipe?

PUL Team - April 26, 2022, 4:49 p.m.

Hey Martin, thanks for the question! If you're using our home-made dough recipe with the pizza stone we'd recommend following those instructions (…). You can prepare the toppings for this pizza up to step 5, and then add them to the pizza dough in step 12 and bake until the pizza is golden 🙂

Gitte - Jan. 13, 2022, 11:35 p.m.

Loved it!

Britt - Aug. 8, 2021, 11:36 a.m.

Love this recipe so much! I make this pizza often when I feel like comfort food but still want to eat somewhat healthy. The mexican twist is great! As I write this review I'm even thinking about making the pizza tonight.... ;)

PUL Team - Aug. 8, 2021, 10:43 p.m.

Aw we're so happy to hear this, Britt! We hope you enjoy the pizza tonight if you give it a go 😃

Charlotte - Aug. 7, 2021, 10:52 p.m.

Crazy for this pizza as I love both pizza and Mexican food!! I always make it gluten free using the BBQ Caluflower Pizza base made into a circle with a slight crust. I think the cilantro yogurt mayo perfectly balances the spiciness of the toppings and it is probably up there in my top 5 PUL meals!

PUL Team - Aug. 8, 2021, 10:08 p.m.

You're too kind, Charlotte! Thanks a bunch for taking the time to review this one 😃

Anne - July 11, 2021, 11:15 p.m.

Made this with my boyfriend a few times, we absolutely love it!

Anna - July 9, 2021, 11:16 a.m.

Such a nice recipe! I substituted the tomato paste with some tomato sauce I had left over from another dish. And what can I say? The pizza was delicious! I will definitely be making it again soon.

PUL Team - July 13, 2021, 2:51 p.m.

A lovely substitution, Anna! So glad you're enjoying the pizza 🤩

Sam - July 8, 2021, 7:44 p.m.

My partner isn’t vegan/plant based so when we have pizza nights we each make our own. I made this one night, and after he tried it, he said it’s the only pizza he wants to make from now on! It was so yummy, filling, and not too heavy.
I added refried black beans to the base and it was incredible!
Thank you so much for the recipe Sadia!

PUL Team - July 10, 2021, 8:13 p.m.

We're so glad you and your partner enjoyed the pizza, Sam! Love the addition of beans 😍
