Mexican Pizza

  • m

I found myself at a place called La Pizza Loca, at the corner of San Fernando and Fletcher in Glendale, though it appears to be one of a chain.
In addition to the usual toppings (sausage, pepperoni, ham & pineapple among them) they feature chorizo, beans and jalapeno peppers.
Service was less than exemplary -- the young girl at the counter tried to charge me $1 tax on a $3.98 lunch special -- and I didn't have the nerve to try the Mexican toppings. Though they sound interesting, like a flat burrito, perhaps.
Anybody else tried one of these?

  1. I spent a some months working at the local pizza place.. delivering.. while I was in college.

    The owner got creative and put a mexican pizza on her menu also... refried beans, chorizo, jalepenos, cheese.. all on a thin THIN crust... In my opinion, it had some promise... of course.. beans from a can are NEVER good... but hey... it worked!

    Even then, I was a chowhound in training. It was always fun to make dinner for the crew... using their ingredients to cook things NOT on the menu. Nothing like having access to a resteraunt kitchen... wooHOO!

    Speaking of pizza... I've seen some places put pesto AND red sauce on the pizza together... Is that pretty common here in southern California? Up north, it was always red OR green... but never both.

    Enjoying the board! Glad to be here!
