Colombian Pizza (Pizza Colombiana)

by Erica Dinho on December 15, 2009

Pizza ColombianaToday let me introduce you to my favorite pizza of all time. This Colombian pizza is one of those things I love to eat whenever I visit Colombia. I must confess, I did not make my own pizza dough, I just used store bought. If you are feeling brave, feel free to make your own…I am not there yet ;-).

I have no words to describe just how good this pizza is. It is packed with goodness! You’ll have to try it so that you can understand what I am talking about for yourself. One of the reasons I love this blog so much is because it pushes me to make recipes at home of foods that I love and miss so much from my country.

Buen Apetito!



  • ½ lb pizza dough
  • Flour for surface
  • ½ cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¾ cup frozen corn
  • 1 Colombian chorizo, thinly slice and cooked
  • 1 small ripe avocado, peeled and diced
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Cooking Spray
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Colombian Pizza


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F
  2. On a lightly floured surface turn out the dough and lightly work into a rectangle. Let rest for 10 minutes. Pat and stretch out the dough, turning and lifting to make about 1/8 inch thick.
  3. Place the pizza on a lightly sprayed cookie sheet. Spread the pizza sauce and top with mozzarella cheese.
  4. Sprinkle the frozen corn evenly over the pizza, add the chorizo slices and Bake for about 15 minutes.
  5. Remove the pizza from the oven and top with cilantro and diced avocado. Serve.
  6. Pizza Colombiana sliced

I just OD’d on chorizo and avocado the other night, and now I wish I had seen this, because I would have made it! Pizza in any language is the best to me…

The pizza sounds delicious especially with the avocade.


5 MaryMoh December 15, 2009 at 12:13 PM

I love avocado but haven’t tried it on pizza. This pizza looks very different from the normal pizzas that we eat. Looks very delicious. Love all the ingredients used.

I LOVE the big pieces of avocado on top! What a nice twist to a traditional pizza.


10 Gera @ SweetsFoods December 15, 2009 at 3:20 PM

Pizza Pizza!! With this chorizo and avocado must be super-delicious.
Although I never tried pizza with avocado… good idea :)

12 rebecca subbiah December 15, 2009 at 6:39 PM

13 monicajane December 15, 2009 at 9:06 PM

looks fantastic…I love chorizo though I don’t think I’ve had the columbian version before…

I grew up with rectangular pizza so this is a nostalgia inducing post for me…and in Italy most of it is served that way too.


14 Divina December 15, 2009 at 9:50 PM

I absolutely love the flavors on this pizza.


15 Natasha - 5 Star Foodie December 15, 2009 at 10:00 PM

Wow, it looks incredible with corn and avocado!


16 Diana@Spain in Iowa December 15, 2009 at 10:27 PM

Erica, this looks so yummy!! I have a question about the Colombian Chorizo, is it similar to Spanish Chorizo? Looks so good and I would love to try it!


17 Pilar December 15, 2009 at 11:18 PM

Colombia is known for its “original” twists on many foods. Other only seen in Colombia pizza toppings: Guava paste and cheese, chicken and mushrooms, butifarra and queso costeño (a local fresh cheese from the Caribbean coast of Colombia ), among others.


18 sarah December 15, 2009 at 11:34 PM

Oooh looks and sounds delicious. I love the addition of avocado and corn.


19 Sook December 16, 2009 at 1:18 AM

We put corn on pizza in Korea too! A lot of Americans laughed about that in Korea but I think it’s a great ingredient for pizza! :) Your pizza looks fabulous!


20 Sophie December 16, 2009 at 3:51 AM

The pizza looks incredibly rich with chorizo & avocado,…MMMMMMMMMM!!! Just so colourful & lovely!!


21 Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella December 16, 2009 at 5:59 AM

This does sound wonderful (I’m s partial to chorizo!). Is Columbian chorizo very different from Spanish Chorizo? :)


22 Erica December 16, 2009 at 8:19 AM

Diana and Lorraine – Colombian and Spanish chorizo have different flavor and Colombian chorizo is not as red as the Spanish one.


23 Kim December 16, 2009 at 8:31 AM

Wow Erica! If this was in front of me right now I would inhale it :D I absolutely love chorizo and I can imagine that this pizza is wonderful :D


24 Erica December 16, 2009 at 9:00 AM

I am loving all the comments!Thank you.


25 Joanne December 16, 2009 at 10:00 AM

The toppings on this pizza look absolutely fantastic! Especially the avocado. I need to incorporate those into my life more.

I am all about the homemade pizza dough! You should give it a try, it is actually so much easier than it seems.


26 3hungrytummies December 16, 2009 at 11:45 AM

It looks wonderful!!!


27 Jenn AKA The Leftover Queen December 16, 2009 at 12:38 PM

I love all the fresh veggies on that pizza! Looks great – and certainly I will have to try it one of these days!


28 Oysterculture December 19, 2009 at 9:49 AM

There’s a pizza place here in SF that serves both Columbian (I swear, need to check) and Italian pizzas – I do remember lots of corn on the pizza which I thought was a great addition. Your recipe sounds amazing and easy to do at home. Cannot wait to try.


29 Julie February 1, 2010 at 11:30 PM

I made this tonight for dinner. It was so delicious! The whole family loved it!


30 Erica February 2, 2010 at 7:39 AM

31 Bo February 2, 2010 at 12:28 AM

32 Tim March 1, 2010 at 8:42 AM

37 Melanie May 26, 2010 at 9:09 AM

This looks great!!I love the twist on the regular pizza–I also like pizza with prosciutto-fig-parmesan and arugula.


38 Fernando June 2, 2011 at 3:37 PM

Amazing, easy to make meal!
My family loved this dinner…the next time I would add more chorizo. I’ll definitely make it again.
