Mexican Pizza
Who doesn’t love pizza? Or Mexican food? I know I do. Of course I love anything that contains cheese and jalapeños, so I’m not too hard to please. This Mexican Pizza is a wonderful light and healthy meal, or appetizer, to satisfy your cravings, but not bring on the guilt!

It’s one of the easiest and quickest guilty pleasure meals that you can make and it’s very versatile. Use any kind of toppings you like if you don’t care for all of my crazy toppings and stuff some meat in there if you prefer some meat. Or consider if a #MeatFree meal!
