Do you celebrate Cinco de Mayo?  We typically don’t celebrate or honestly, cook many Mexican dishes at our home.  After making Mexican Pizza with Chipotle Orange Sauce, and enjoying it  along with a Margarita, I can see why Cinco de Mayo Recipes are such a hit.

My friend Jen from Juanita’s Cocina is always excited about Mexican Cuisine and couldn’t wait to host these week’s #SundaySupper event.  After seeing all the beautiful recipes that the Sunday Supper Team came up with, I think will be enjoying more Mexican recipes at our home.

Since Alexandra and her boyfriend are quite the college foodies, ( I am not kidding, they eat quite well for college students)  I decided to turn to them for some inspiration.  We played in the kitchen until we came up with this recipe for Mexican Pizza with Orange Chipotle Sauce and… it truly was spectacular!   The best part about it, I love that we can set up a Mexican Pizza Station and everyone can add their own toppings to create their own masterpiece. Mexican pizza with Orange Chipotle Sauce #SundaySupper

I tend to make the same 3 Mexican entrees over and over. This WILL change…your Mexican pizza is certain to become a family favorite. I’m happy to add a new pork recipe to my repertoire. Happy Cinco de Mayo, my friend.

That is one beautiful pizza – a great Mexican twist!

That sauce is to die for Isabel! I can understand why your daughter is a foodie. Happy Sunday Supper!


Nicole May 5, 2013 at 9:25 am

We don’t do much Mexican either. Nor do we celebrate Cinco De Mayo, but your pizzas look fabulous – and omg, that Chipotle Orange Sauce. Oh yes.
Alexandra and the boyfriend – brilliant little foodies, totally brilliant.

Being in San Antonio…and having a Hispanic hubby…I cook a TON of Mexican food. Some of it is laborious, but I also love quick-cook dishes like this. I have pinned this, as I know Michael will LOVE it! Can’t wait to make this for him…


BusyWorkingMama May 5, 2013 at 10:54 am

The orange zest adds such lovely color. I’d gobble that sucker right up!

When I saw your recipe in the preview for this weeks #SundaySupper I was intrigued by the sound of the chipotle orange sauce. This looks really great and a nice twist to a Mexican meal.


Jen @JuanitasCocina May 5, 2013 at 11:15 am

Just give me some of that sauce with a spoon please!


Andrea {From the Bookshelf} May 5, 2013 at 12:28 pm

Bea May 5, 2013 at 12:31 pm

This is so super fun and it has all the makings of a perfect fun dish; plus the sauce sounds like an absolute winner!!! Yum! P.S.: Jen you will have to share the sauce with me :)


Carla May 5, 2013 at 2:31 pm

Love the idea of pizza with tortilla shells! I always have tortillas and can be found making quesadillas or fajitas several times a week haha


Renee May 5, 2013 at 2:32 pm

Proves that great things can come from a few foodies in the kitchen! What a fabulous pizza. Love the chipotle orange sauce.


Diana @GourmetDrizzles May 5, 2013 at 3:07 pm

What a fantastic idea, allowing everyone to pick their own toppings. And mmm… anything with orange in it, is a winner to me. Bet it perfectly compliments the pork and spicy chipotle!


kathia Rodriguez May 5, 2013 at 6:33 pm

Delicious, you did it again, fabulous, I want one now!


The Ninja Baker May 5, 2013 at 7:03 pm
