Reviews for Mexican Pizza
"This would now be my family's favorite pizza recipe! I didn't use the cream cheese just doubled the sour cream and served with salsa. I love how quick and easy this was and I will be using crescent roll dough for other pizza recipes too."
"We really liked this for a quick, tasty, weeknight meal! I added onions and chopped green chilis to the meat (well, I used EVES ground vegan meat, can't tell the difference from real hambureger and it's the only one I will use). I also added about 1 cut of black beans on top of the meat. Great!"
"This is so so good! I can't wait to make it again for an upcoming party. Easy, fast, and delicious!!"
