Thanks to the folks at FlatOut and Society Culinaria for making this recipe possible. As always, my comments, opinions, and love for Mexican-style pizzas are my own. 

I know I’ve mentioned before that the annual spectacle that is Cinco de Mayo in the United States comes as a bit of a surprise to most Mexicans back in Mexico. As you may or may not know, we have many, many big holidays in Mexico, but Cinco de Mayo generally isn’t one of them.

There are pockets of Mexico, of course, like in Puebla, where celebrations near the battlefield commemorate the holiday, that might recognize it a little more than other places, but it’s not the sort of holiday most Mexicans would get the day off work for, as an instance, if it were to land in the middle of the week.

Having said that, this doesn’t mean I haven’t completely embraced the American version of the holiday. You know me. I love to throw a party, so ¡Viva Cinco de Mayo!

I start with the Flatout thin pizza crust because it is like a blank artist’s canvas, perfect for wraps, pinwheels, super easy pizzas, and creating impressive appetizers for Cinco de Mayo or anytime.

I love this chile relleno pizza because it captures the essence of both the holiday, with its red, white and green ingredients and the authentic chile relleno flavor itself.
