Today 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!Flour for surface¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

Nunca he probado una pizza con avocado, para la proxima lo haré, besoosss

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...
Oh My..what a treat..I m drooling here..looks awesome and yummy..
The pizza sounds delicious especially with the avocade.
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 have never had any pizza with avocado....would love to try them!
How could it fail with chorizo + avocado...plus it's pizza!
Thank all for visiting and taking the time to leave a comment!
I LOVE the big pieces of avocado on top! What a nice twist to a traditional pizza.

Pizza Pizza!! With this chorizo and avocado must be super-delicious.
Although I never tried pizza with avocado… good idea 🙂
oh my, this pizza does sound amazing with the chorizo! YUM!
oh wow now thats a pizza have you seen tomatoes on the vine today it will make you smile
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.
I absolutely love the flavors on this pizza.

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!
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.
Oooh looks and sounds delicious. I love the addition of avocado and corn.
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!
The pizza looks incredibly rich with chorizo & avocado,...MMMMMMMMMM!!! Just so colourful & lovely!!

This does sound wonderful (I'm s partial to chorizo!). Is Columbian chorizo very different from Spanish Chorizo? 🙂
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 😀 I absolutely love chorizo and I can imagine that this pizza is wonderful 😀
I am loving all the comments!Thank you.
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.
It looks wonderful!!!

I love all the fresh veggies on that pizza! Looks great - and certainly I will have to try it one of these days!
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.
I made this tonight for dinner. It was so delicious! The whole family loved it!
Julie- Thank you so much for your feedback! Glad you liked it.
Its funny how everyone loves pizza...This looks great I had never thought of putting corn on pizza
Thank you for this wonderful pizza! we made it on Saturday and was a hit. We loved it....It was perfect and the flavor was delicious.
This is a terrific recipe.Follow the recipe as is. My kids loved it.
I am doing a school report on columbia. I think this will be a great addition.
I'm hoping for an A+
I made this Colombian pizza and my family loved it!!! They ate it all....very fast! Thank you so much. Colombian food is amazing.
Love your content about pizza and the way that you write. Makes me want to order gourmet pizza ;~p
This looks great!!I love the twist on the regular pizza--I also like pizza with prosciutto-fig-parmesan and arugula.
Amazing, easy to make meal!
My family loved this dinner...the next time I would add more chorizo. I'll definitely make it again.
