One bite of this lovely Mexican topped pizza and you will be in heaven because it tastes so good. Mexico and Italy are both home to some wonderful recipes but combine them and you end up with something like this – your favorite kind of pizza crust topped with chicken, corn and taco sauce, as well as cheese, and served with avocado, lime and cilantro for tasty Mexican touches.
