Mexican Pizza

30 min

Meal

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.

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.... ;)

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

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!

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

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

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.

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

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!

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