I made this video as a product review for the Fire Roasted "Warning Salsa". I used this fantastic product as a base for a taco pizza, and I'm here to tell you, that it was simply amazing! The Warning Salsa ROCKED this pizza, as well as the taco seasoning that I made from a recipe over at the youtube channel Food Jazz! I will be making this pizza again for sure!
