Pizza And Tacos Collide With This Al Pastor Pizza

Al pastor tacos are a staple in the Mexican street food scene and while you’d probably never think to find the classic marinated pork on a pizza, it is now on the list of things you didn’t know you needed in your life.

Rose City Pizza in Rosemead, California is known for getting a little crazy with its pizzas after introducing an Elote Pizza, and even spreading Flamin’ Hot Cheetos all over their pies, so it may or may not be surprising that they practically threw a whole taco on top.

They start off with a layer of cheese over their crust, because some of it has to resemble a pizza, then the rest is taco toppings. Starting with pineapple, which is integral to an al pastor taco, chopped onions, radish slices, and of course the grilled al pastor that they cut straight from a vertical spit, just as you’d see inside any good taco shop. Since no taco is complete without a good salsa, they top off the whole thing with a jalapeno aioli drizzled over for added flavor.

Even if you’re not a fan of pineapple on pizza, you have to admit this pizza looks pretty bomb, and if you’re a fan of al pastor tacos, this pizza’s a no-brainer.
