Few tips and tricks in making these Mexican style pizzas:

  1. Toast muffins – Toasting muffins for a few minutes before making pizzas, ensures that the muffins do not get soggy even after baking. 
  2. Use thicker salsa – Do not use watery salsa. If your salsa is watery, then add the salsa into a strainer and let drain for couple of minutes to drain off any excess liquid. 
  3. Cheese – A mix of Monterey jack and cheddar cheeses can be used instead of Mexican blend cheese.
  4. Make it spicy – If you love spicy, then use a spicy variety of salsa
  5. Add avocado just before eating.
