This Chilean-style pizza brings back the best memories. If you love onion, which, paired with juicy tomatoes and tasty browned meat, results in delicious pizza, you will be rewarded.
This pizza can be made year-round, but it shines during the summer while tomatoes are in season. In Chile, we eat it with crystal pepper sauce. This kind of pepper only adds flavor. It’s barely hot. In the US, you can use Sweet Banana Peppers.
I recommend this alternative for those super busy days. You can even brown the meat ahead of time during the weekend and save it in the fridge.

A very pleasant variation on the pizzas we normally have in Canada. As I read the ingredients I was afraid that it might taste a little too much like Mexican pizza to be different, or maybe a little too dull. But after my first bite I knew that it was something different. Perhaps in the slightly different preparation of certain components. After eating about half I did pour on a little Chilean hot sauce but that is what I do with all pizzas.
Great review, Tariq. Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for stopping by.
