Frequently Asked Questions

How To Store Mexican Pizza

For the freshest pizza with the best texture and moistness, it is best to serve it right after making it. That way, each ingredient can stand on its own, in terms of flavor and texture, for a satisfying pizza-eating experience. Luckily, it’s super-quick to put together, even on your busiest of nights!
If the pizza is stored for an extended period of time, chances are the moistness of the toppings will soak into the crust, leaving the pizza to eat on the dry side and make the crust soggier.

For leftover slices, wrap the cooled slices in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and store in the refrigerator up to 1 day. To reheat a slice or two, unwrap the pizza, and place the pieces on a microwavable plate. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Microwave on Medium-High (70%) 1 to 2 minutes, depending on the number of slices, or until heated through.

Freezing is not recommended for this pizza.

What are Variations to this Mexican Pizza Recipe?

You can easily customize this pizza by swapping products or adding a few more, for a delicious twist, each time you make it:
Swap the Refried Beans: Use Old El Paso™ Green Chiles or Black Bean Refried Beans, for fun flavor change.

Swap the Enchilada Sauce: Instead of red enchilada sauce, make this pizza using Old El Paso™ green chile enchilada sauce instead. Or get creative and drizzle half the dough with half of a can of the red sauce, and the other half of the dough with half a can of the green chile sauce, so everyone can have their favorite!

Swap the Cheese: Rather than using a Mexican cheese blend, try shredded co-jack, pepper-Jack or even cheddar.

Add Bold Spice: Stir in Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles into the enchilada sauce before spreading on the pizza. Or stir in a shake or two of ground cumin, smoked paprika or chili powder.

Add Toppings: Sprinkle the pizza with cooked and crumbled ground beef or chorizo sausage or cooked and crumbled bacon or chopped smoked chorizo before topping with the cheese.

How to Make Spicy Mexican Pizza?

If you love spicy Mexican pizza, you can add some heat in a variety of ways!
Sprinkle On the Heat: Before baking, sprinkle the cheese with drained Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles, or for more heat, arrange slices of fresh jalapeño over the cheese.

Stir It In: Bump up the temperature with a little of your favorite hot sauce, chopped fresh chiles or a few red pepper flakes stirred into the can of enchilada sauce, before it goes on the pizza.

Shake It On: Set out some hot sauce so that everyone can shake on just their perfect amount of heat to their own slices.
