Reviews for New Mexico-Style Pizza
"I love the recipe as-is, and make it this way often. Other times, however, I mix the salsa verde with low fat cream cheese, to make a thicker "sauce". I also like to add black beans. It's a delicious meal!"

"MMM! Just like the author I had a bunch of leftovers to use up and tried this recipe. It's sooo good! I ran short of the salsa verde and used a chopped up tomato to make up the difference. Was still incredibly yummy. (also omitted the sour cream. you'll never miss it.)"
