Vegan Tlayudas

Vegan Tlayudas are a plant-based take on a traditional Oaxacan street food dish often referred to as Mexican pizza. The base of the dish is a large, crispy corn tortilla, which is toasted on a griddle until it reaches a delightful crunch. This classic dish is then adapted to a vegan-friendly version by using a variety of flavorful, plant-based toppings.
