Pizza in Mexico
Italian immigrants arrived in Mexico in significant numbers during the late 19th century, making pasta and pizza part of everyday dining. Mexicans enjoy using large corn tortillas, which are oven-baked with Oaxacan Cheese and Beans, and other toppings, which they call Tlayudas or Mexican Pizza.

If you don’t have much time, grab a premade pizza base at your local grocery store, or hand make your own pizza dough following the simple steps below.
- Whisk yeast and lukewarm water in a jug. Leave sitting for roughly five minutes.
- Add flour and salt in a large bowl. Create a well in the centre of the flour. Pour in the liquid yeast mixture and the oil.
- Using dough mixer or hands, gently mix dough until smooth. Place pizza dough on a lightly floured work surface and then knead by hand for five minutes.
- Lightly oil a bowl, and place mixture in and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise until the dough doubles in size.
- Pour dough mix out onto a clean, floured surface. Now hand knead gently for another five minutes.
- Divide dough mixture into equal sized balls. Hand stretch or roll out the bases to the expected size.
- Spread some flour on kitchen bench before rolling, in order to prevent sticking.

Barbecue Pizza Sauce Method
You can make this tasty pizza sauce following the simple steps below, or you can purchase a pizza sauce at your local supermarket.
- Add ingredients together in small saucepan on low heat.
- Whisk all ingredients until well combined and bring mixture to a simmer.
- Partially cover the saucepan and let the sauce simmer approximately 10-15 minutes.
- Stir occasionally, until it has thickened.
- Cool the sauce to room temperature and then placing in fridge to cool completely.
Keep in mind that you can always adjust the taste to your liking by adding salt and pepper.
Preparing Chili Con Carne Pizza
Preheat your oven to roughly 500 degrees.
Roll out the dough to either slightly smaller than your pizza stone or tray.
Alternatively, if you have a pizza peel, roll out to be smaller than that.
You start by spreading the sauce around. This pizza calls for BBQ Sauce. Spread the BBQ Sauce evenly using the back of a large spoon or ladle.
Then start adding the largest ingredients, then work your way down. The last is any cheese topping, such as Mozzarella, which you should evenly cover the other toppings with, and then finally any herbs.
Toppings to put on this pizza are;
- Ground Beef
- Black Beans
- Hot Chili Peppers
- Sour Cream
I find this pizza very tasty on its own, or why not enjoy it with a simple side dish?
Put the Chili Con Carne pizza in the middle of your oven (on a stone if you have one) and set timer for 10 minutes.
After roughly 10 minutes, check on the pizza.
Pizza should be ready within 15 minutes. However, allow it to cook to personal taste.
About Hot Chili Peppers
Hot Chili Peppers are the perfect topping to spice up any pizza. Whether you like your pizza hot or mild, adding chili peppers to the mix is sure to make it more flavorful and exciting.
Chili peppers come in a variety of tastes and colors; from mild jalapenos all the way up to eye-watering habaneros. You can choose to add as little or as much as you want depending on your taste preference.
When making Chili Con Carne Pizza, I always recommend that you use what you have available, without spending lots of money. My basic pizza tool list is…
The one kitchen tool every adult should have in their drawer. See our article on how to cut pizza for the various cutting tools.
Yes, I know, many people swear by hand stretching, however there’s times in all our lives where we need a good wooden roller.
A pizza stone really helps create a fantastic tasting pizza at home. Learn how to clean and care for your Pizza Stone.
Black beans are an ideal option for those looking to add a unique flavor to their pies. Not only do they provide a tasty punch of umami, but they also offer various health benefits.
The nutty taste of the beans pairs nicely with a variety of sauces from pesto to barbecue – so you can get creative and come up with your own unique flavor combinations.

Pizza making FAQ
Want to know how to make delicious pizza at home? Here are some FAQ and their answers to the most common pizza making questions.
Can I use bread dough for making pizza?
Sadly no. Bread dough doesn’t have the same consistency and needs that a pizza dough has. If you mean bread flour, yes, many bread flours are fine enough to work for pizza, however I always recommend )) flour instead, which is created for pizza dough making.
What is the order of ingredients when topping a pizza?
The order of ingredients when topping a pizza is typically the pizza sauce, the large ingredients (meat, seafood, vegetables, etc), the smaller ingredients, cheese topping then herbs. If you are using fresh herbs, you may wish to bake the oven then sprinkle them on afterwards, to avoid them browning.
When do I add ice cream on a dessert pizza?
With ingredients such as ice cream, cream and even fruits, it is normally best to cook the pizza with the harder toppings, and then add these toppings after baking, so they don’t burn or melt everywhere in the oven.
