Mexican Pizza

Mexican Pizza, though not of Mexican origin, is a pizza variety that is specially made using Mexican ingredients and is often served as a part of Mexican cuisine. Often referred to as a pizza-like dish, the Mexican pizza uses a tortilla, salsa or refried beans base, and gives preference to cheddar cheese when compare to mozzarella cheese in the Italian pizzas. Made with spiced beef or jalapeno toppings, Mexican pizza is best teamed with tomato sauce and often uses pizza dressing with pure Mexican ingredients like taco sauce, Mexican cheeses, lettuce etc. Mostly served as a main dish, the Mexican pizza can also be dished out as appetizers when cut into wedges.
