Earlier this week, I shared the easy recipe for making Slow-Cooked Mexican Carnitas and I promised it was for all kinds of dishes, such as this Carnitas Pizza!

For this pizza, the pizza sauce gives way to enchilada sauce. Add some red onion slices, then pile the carnitas on and sprinkle with cheese. Bake in a hot oven, then garnish with quick pickled onions, cilantro and more cheese.
