Black Hogg's Ode To The Mexican Pizza

As part of Eater's first ever pizza week, chefs at five LA restaurants that don't serve pizza agreed to make a special limited edition pizza-inspired creation served just this week and next. Every day we'll highlight a new pizza, today we have An Ode To The Mexican Pizza from Black Hogg.

Elizabeth Daniels 5/12

Chef Eric Park of newbie Black Hogg in Silver Lake says that his Ode To The Mexican Pizza was inspired by a guilty pleasure he enjoyed growing up - Taco Bell's Mexican Pizza. "Classic Southland grub from way back," he states.
Here he has created a refined version of the pizza, a deep-dish version made with a masa harina (corn tortilla flour) crust. His pizza is layered with longaniza sausage, black beans, queso fresco, heirloom tomato pico de gallo, skirt steak asada, and topped with a sweet corn salsa. The hearty pie costs $15.
