    Do you recall that we were talking about Tillamook cheese, which happens to be our favorite cheese right now? Tillamook is the most popular natural cheese brand in the Western United States, and the company has recently expanded its reach to other states such as Indiana (yeah!). You might recall that in order to celebrate, we went to a party over the weekend in Detroit.

    However, we’re keeping it all in the family by whipping up a fantastic recipe with Tillamook Sharp Cheddar Cheese — this insanely gorgeous Mexican pizza to be specific. The cheese is now distributed across the country; if you go here, you can find out where you can purchase Tillamook in your location.

    The ultimate fusion: Mexican pizza

    Let’s chat about developing ourselves as individuals while we eat Mexican pizza. I apologize for the interruption, but please hear me out! The original Mexican pizza recipe served as a general source of inspiration for the creation of this new Mexican pizza dish.

    When I look at the old recipe and the accompanying pictures, it’s almost as if I’m gazing at a picture of myself wearing braces and sporting enormous gravity-defying bangs. Seven years ago, we were responsible for writing and photographing the ancient Mexican pizza. The past seven years

    We had only been cooking for a few years when we decided to create A Couple Cooks as a hobby for ourselves. When we consider our past efforts, it’s not uncommon for us to have feelings of embarrassment or unease.

    So rather than being embarrassed by our older work or who we were in the past, we are striving to move beyond that and embrace it. Both the language and imagery of our recipes have seen significant improvements. It is important to not forget those beginnings, with all of their gravity-defying bangs and waterfall bangs.

    How to make Mexican Pizza

    This Mexican pizza, on the other hand, is very mouthwatering and satisfying to eat. Tillamook Sharp Cheddar Cheese is used in the preparation of our Mexican pizza. Did you know that shredded Mexican cheese often contains sharp cheddar as one of its components? Hence, it serves as the ideal accompaniment to Mexican cuisine.

    If you’ve never tried Mexican pizza before, there are many different takes on the dish, but the one that we recommend the most is this one. Instead of using tomato sauce, a creamy mixture of refried black beans and sour cream is placed straight onto the dough. This is followed by the addition of shredded cheddar cheese, tomatoes, green onions, and corn.

    Alex came up with a unique topping for this dish, which consisted of quick-pickled onions and jalapenos, and it was the icing on the cake! These are not required, but adding them will give the pizza a more sour flavour and a more vibrant colour. If you don’t like spicy food, you may leave out the jalapeos and only use onions instead.

    Nevertheless, you should be aware that pickling jalapeos reduces their level of heat, so they are only slightly spicy after being pickled. To top off the loaded Mexican pizza, all that is required is a dash of hot sauce, some sour cream, and some cilantro that has been torn into pieces. It was really mouthwatering, and we enjoyed it with our neighbours as part of a pizza night on our patio. Although it lacks meat, it nonetheless manages to pack all of the flavorful punch of a traditional pizza.

    Loaded Mexican Pizza


    For the quick pickled onions and jalapenos

    • ¼ cup thinly sliced red onion*
    • 1 jalapeño pepper (omit if you don’t enjoy spicy food, but the pickling mellows the spice)
    • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon water
    • 1 garlic clove
    • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
    • ½ teaspoon sugar
    • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

    For the pizza

    • 1 dough Best Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe or Food Processor Pizza Dough
    • ½ cup vegetarian refried beans
    • ¼ teaspoon cumin
    • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, plus additional to taste
    • 1/2 tomato
    • 1 green onion
    • ¼ cup corn kernels, frozen or fresh
    • ¾ cup shredded Tillamook Sharp Cheddar Cheese
    • 1 handful of cilantro, torn
    • Sour cream, for the garnish
    • Hot sauce, for the garnish


    • To make quick pickled onions and jalapenos, follow these steps: Prepare the red onion and jalapeo pepper by slicing them very thinly. Mix together in a jar along with the rest of the ingredients. Let it sit out at room temperature for thirty to forty-five minutes; alternatively, it can be prepared several days in advance and stored in the refrigerator.
    • Make the dough according to the instructions for the Master Pizza Dough Recipe (follow this video instruction for more). If the dough was prepared ahead of time, follow the instructions for preparation that are included in the recipe.
    • Put a pizza stone in the oven and turn the temperature up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • In the meantime, combine the refried beans, one tablespoon of water, one teaspoon of cumin, and one teaspoon of kosher salt.
    • Remove the seeds and dice the tomato. Prepare the green onion by slicing it very thinly. The cheese should be grated.
    • When the oven is ready, shape the dough into circle by stretching it into a circle; for directions, see How to Stretch Pizza Dough. Place the dough in a careful manner on a pizza peel that has either flour or cornmeal put on it.
    • After you have spread a thin layer of the refried beans across the dough, sprinkle some of the shredded cheese on top. Add some corn, tomatoes, and green onions on top.
    • After transferring the pizza from the pizza peel to the pizza stone, bake it for approximately seven minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
    • Serve with sour cream, hot sauce, quick pickled onions and jalapenos, and cilantro that has been broken into pieces as garnishes.
