I prefer Italian food, but my brother is a big fan of Mexican cooking. I combined my preferences with his and came up with this recipe. He loved it. If you prefer a spicier flavor, just use hotter salsa. —Carly Curtin, Ellicott City, Maryland

Great recipe, healthy & yummy! Since didn't have much time, I used Pillsbury pizza dough, still turned out great. This is a keeper, for the time that I run out of ideas of what to make.

Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.

This sandwich was delicious, it tasted like a burrito.

Used a left over roasted chicken, left out the cumin-not a fan. Otherwise would not change a thing! Also delicious reheated in the oven @250 for about 18 min.

MY REVIEW

I made several changes, the first of which was not using a bread machine, since I don't have one. I dissolved the yeast in the water (but at 90-110 degrees), then added the rest of the dough ingredients (except the milk powder, which I left out), and kneaded it with my mixer until smooth (around 7ish minutes). Then I sprayed with Pam and covered to let double (around 30 minutes). I also used mozzarella and cheddar instead of the Mexican blend because I wanted to use my mozzarella that I had left over. It was really tasty, and it looked really nice.

MY REVIEW

This was good. I had to add water to the dough to get it to form, but it came out really crispy and with a good flavor. I enjoyed the filling as well. This was definitely big though. I didn't find there was too much filling for the amount of dough.
