Things have been busy in our house. Not because my purim mishloach manot are done, nor is my house spotless for pesach, rather everyone has taken turns being sick. But now that Purim is a minute away, I had to come and share these amazing savory hamantashen with you!
These Mexican Pizza Hamantashen were inspired by the vibrant Mexican influence in food found in LA. They are packed with flavor and come together easily. Best of all they make for a beautifully colorful presentation.
I also included the easiest, 5 minute homemade tomato sauce, so you can be sure to make these in a short amount of time with things you probably already have at home.

Mexican Pizza Hamantashen
1 6oz. can tomato paste
1 cup water
1/2 tablespoon granulated garlic
1/2 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chile flakes (optional)
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon dired basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
12-18 rounds pizza dough
1/2 pack Natural and Kosher Pizza cheese
1/2 15oz. can corn
1 red bell pepper, finely cubed
1 yellow bell pepper, finely cubed
2-3 green onions, finely sliced
1/2 15oz. can of beans (optional, not pictured)
1/2 jalapeño, finely diced (optional, not pictured)
In a small saucepan, combine the tomato paste, water, and spices. Stir well and bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer for 5-6 minutes and set aside to cool slightly. Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare pizza hamantashen by spooning a small amount of the tomato sauce and a sprinkling of pizza cheese. Fold each side of the dough to form a hamantashen, pinching the corners well so they don’t tear open. Bake in the middle rack for 10-12 minutes or until browned and the cheese bubbles.
Meanwhile, prepare the topping by mixing the corn, peppers, green onion, and beans (if using). Once the pizza hamantashen is ready, remove from the oven, place on a serving platter and spoon the vegetable mixture over it. Serve immediately.
If not serving immediately, don’t top with the vegetable mixture.
