Every Friday night during the summer, you’ll find us firing up our charcoal grill and making homemade grilled pizzas. There’s nothing better! It’s become a summer tradition for my husband and me. It’s a great way to spend some quality time together while cooking up a fun, homemade meal!
Last Thursday, my husband had plans to spend the day fishing. Knowing he’d be pretty beat when he came home, I made a crockpot London broil for dinner. I cooked it in a mixture of beef broth, fajita seasoning, and adobo sauce. It shredded apart beautifully and was delicious as soft tacos! The leftovers were even better on pizza the next day!
We love getting creative with our pizza toppings. Since we had shredded beef left over from the night before, we decided to make Grilled Steak Fajita Pizza for dinner. We swapped out tomato sauce for HERDEZ® Salsa Verde. Then, we added peppers and onions from our garden, some shredded beef, and topped it off with a mixture of shredded cheddar and mozzarella. It was awesome!

I am a huge fan of salsa and salsa verde is one of my favorites! Tomatillos give salsa verde its color and slightly sour bite. It’s a little thinner than regular salsa, but it’s so, so good! It worked perfectly on our new fajita-style pizza creation, giving it the right amount of freshness and perfect amount of mild salsa heat!
During a recent trip to Walmart, I picked up a jar of HERDEZ® Salsa Verde. It’s a fresh & delicious salsa that goes well on foods from chips to…pizza! You can find HERDEZ® salsa products in the International aisle at Walmart.
