Colombian Pizza (Pizza Colombiana)

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!

    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…

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

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

    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

    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.

    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.
