Cheesy Mexican Pizza is about to become your new family favorite for parties, snacks and game night!
Are you ready to spice up your game day? Every year hubby and I host game day parties, but as much as we love entertaining, we also love football and want to actually be able to watch the games instead of spending time in the kitchen.
It can also be challenging to offer food that caters to everyone’s taste buds! Or foods that won’t take up all of our time.
Nearly every Sunday I find myself in the aisles of the grocery store trying to figure out what to make. This week I came up with the ultimate way to spice up our game day: Mexican Pizza!
The idea is genius. I set up a fixings bar on our kitchen island and left the oven on a low temperature.
As folks got hungry, they grazed through building their own Mexican Pizza, popping it in the oven, setting the egg timer and coming back for their personalized dish when they heard the ding.
The kids loved having control of their own meal. The adults loved not having to deal with the kids.
Making Mexican Pizza with small flour tortillas means that each person can casually make several creations throughout hours of watching pig skin.
You can even add chicken, pork or beef with taco seasoning! Here are some topping ideas to include in your Mexican Pizza Bar:
Want another fun Mexican Pizza Bar tip? Put your sour cream into an airtight plastic bag and snip one corner, use this like a pastry bag to drizzle over Mexican Pizzas. Or use a $1 squeeze bottle from the craft store.
You can also make double decker Mexican pizza just like Taco Bell by sandwiching together two flour tortillas with cheese and meat in the center!
Truth be told, I didn’t even realize that Taco Bell had Mexican Pizzas until one of my guests told me thinking that was what I was trying to emulate.
I felt silly, but the truth is that I always order the same thing at Taco Bell. Always. A bean burrito. So couldn’t tell you if these are a copycat or not…
What I do know is that they taste good and are so fun to make!
Tools for making easy Mexican Pizzas:
Wood cutting board – wood won’t dull your knives like plastic and if treated properly, has natural antimicrobial properties.
Good knife – Global is my favorite! They are worth the price, I promise. I am kind of obsessed with them and store them tucked away so no one else can use them. Including hubby. Hands off my good stuff!
Ramekins– Great for ingredient prep and using on your pizza bar!
