Tlayuda Oaxacan Pizzas

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.

    I’m limiting myself to one tlayuda per week. Otherwise I’d be there daily. I think I’m addicted to asiento.

    Went for take-out lunch today with my boss. Tlayuda (carnitas) was amazing. We were the envy of our lunchroom.
