Tlayuda Oaxacan Pizzas

Get your Mexican pizza

Do you tlayuda?
Often referred to as a Mexican pizza, these Oaxacan specialties are crispy flour tortillas topped with a schmear of refried beans, lettuce, carnitas, Mexican cheese, avocado and, if you’re lucky, a dribble of pork lard. Unless you’re a native, they’ll usually ask before adding the lard, but insiders know to ask for “asiento”.

Feeling adventurous? Try it at Tacos Carrenos, a taco truck parked at 5503 Old Redwood Highway in Santa Rosa. Tlayuda are $10.99 each, but big enough to share. You can also find tlayuda at Agave Mexican Restaurant, 1063 Vine St., Healdsburg.
