Bolillo Snack Pizzas

Friday nights are our family movie night.  We either rent a movie, watch a DVD we already own or watch a movie on T.V. 

While there is always popcorn a plenty to be enjoyed, my kids (and Hubby) always want something a little more filling. But, I would prefer to sit and watch the movie with my family than spend most of that time in the kitchen.  So what's a mom to do? 

Pop a few Bolillo Snack Pizzas in the oven!!!  All you need are Bolillos, a jar of pizza sauce and whatever you can find in your fridge and/or pantry.  My girls and I love veggies such as mushrooms, tomatoes, olives, zucchini and bellpepper on our bolillos pizzas. Hubby prefers deli ham, canned pineapple and jalapeño peppers.  And my boys are partial to salami or pepperoni.  The possibilities are endless!  The entire family can help put these together and best of all, it allows you more free time to spend with your family.

Bolillo Snack Pizzas


  • Bolillos (about 1 per person)
  • 1 jar pizza sauce
  • Your choice of toppings (I used salami)
  • Oaxaca or Mozzarella cheese, sliced or shredded

Preheat oven to 375ºF.

Slice the bolillo rolls in half lengthwise.  Spoon pizza sauce over cut sides of bolillo.  Garnish with your favorite toppings.  Top with lots of shredded or sliced cheese.

Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet for 10 to 15 minutes.  Enjoy!!!

With Love,
Leslie Limon

  3. I am vegan Leslie and I absolutely love your blog. It inspires me to make the non animal version of your food. Its so funny I live here in Missouri and we have a pretty decent latino community here, pero all the freshest and better latina foods are in the american tiendas and not in our tienditas (loca right) i got the best bolillo rolls from an american grocery store.
