Pork Carnitas Pizza and Chicken Taco Pizza

Cinco de Mayo Pizza Party

Pork Carnitas Pizza and Chicken Taco Pizza:

Cinco De Mayo is here, and that means it’s time for a Mexican themed pizza party! A delicious (and healthier too!) variant of pork carnitas pressure cooked in a blend of flavorful homemade stocks (rather than the heavier, traditional animal fat) and a light, fresh-tasting chicken “taco” pizza with fresh tomato, crisp tasting cilantro, and cool avocado are both on the menu for this fiesta (along with plenty of cerveza to pair with them). Accompanied by Flying Dog Brewery’s “Agave Cerveza”, a lager brewed with lime zest and agave nectar, to complete the atmosphere.
