Mexican Pizza Sticks

I’ve never actually had Mexican style pizza until today.  So before making it, I went online searching for some ideas and found lots of variations.  Some used salsa base pizza sauce others use the traditional tomato base pizza sauce.  They all sounded yummy so we decided to experiment with our own ingredients and I went with more of what mi mami would have done in the kitchen.

Many authentic Hispanic dishes call for the use of tomatoes, and Hispanic women including mi mama used fresh, natural, quality ingredients when she cooked for us. I don’t remember a meal that didn’t have tomatoes and onions. Sometimes I don’t’ have the time to roast tomatoes over the comal like my mom did so I’ve been known to substitute it for a can of Hunt’s fire roasted diced tomatoes but that’s our little secret. Don’t tell anyone.

I decided to go with a tomato base sauce with a Mexican twist and it was delicious! My kids had it for lunch and loved it! This would also make an easy party appetizer.
