Mexican Pizza Flatbread

Mexican-Pizza-Flatbread

Just for a little change from turkey leftovers, how about some Mexican food.

Or maybe even a pizza.

Or let’s make it a Mexican pizza while we’re at it.

This pizza is made on flatbread to lighten it up a bit.

Flatbread is actually pretty sturdy for as thin as it is. And it gets crispy which tastes great with the pizza toppings.

So do you still have Thanksgiving leftovers in your fridge?

I do and I’m hoping I use up as much as possible before I reach my turkey leftover limit.

Have a great week.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

    This looks yummy!! I bet it would also be good with chorizo in place of the ground beef. 🙂
