Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Avocado — Slice just before serving to prevent browning.
  • Chorizo — Cook in a pan before adding to pizza to remove excess grease.
  • Salsa — Use your favorite store-bought salsa or make your own.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a spicier pizza, add more jalapenos or use a spicier salsa.
  • If you don't have chorizo, you can use ground beef or chicken instead.
  • To make the pizza crust crispier, preheat a pizza stone in the oven before baking the pizza on it.
  • For a vegetarian version, omit the chorizo and add sliced bell peppers and onions instead.
  • Serve with a side of guacamole and tortilla chips for a complete Mexican-inspired meal.

Serving advice

Serve hot and fresh out of the oven for the best flavor and texture.

Presentation advice
