Mexican Pizza Flatbread with Ground Beef

This has a way of not making it out of the kitchen.

Flatbread Mexican Pizza on plate

Inspiration for this Mexican pizza flatbread comes from both how much I love the taste of Mexican food, plus how pretty and delicious some flatbread appetizers were at a restaurant I was at.

This restaurant serves a variety of flatbread appetizers topped with unique toppings that are so good.

And they cut the flatbread appetizers in the same way as this Mexican pizza is cut, in triangles.

The flatbread appetizers are served on wood planks that really make the food look gorgeous and appetizing.

This scrumptious Mexican flatbread pizza isn’t served on a wood plank but it is served on a rectangular shaped serving plate which is like a “frame” for showing off how colorful this pizza is.

Using flatbread as a crust for pizza lightens the pizza up nicely so it’s perfect as an appetizer.

But then again, sometimes appetizers are perfect for a light main course too and this is one of those recipes.

Served with a salad, this Mexican Pizza is just right for one serving (unless those eating it are really hungry then making 2 of these for one serving would be an even better idea).

Flatbread is actually pretty sturdy for as thin as it is.

And it gets crispy which tastes great with the pizza toppings.

And this pizza also comes with a quick and easy sour cream and salsa sauce drizzled on top from end to end.
