- pizza dough
- 1/4 - 1/3 cups tomato sauce
- 6 - 8 ounces Mexican chorizo cooked
- canned jalapeño slices to taste
- Oaxaca cheese or queso fresco, to taste
Mexican and Italian cuisines couldn’t be any more different, but when united they are an unstoppable force.
Such is the case with this recipe for Mexican Pizza! This tweak on a traditional pie gets its Mexican flair from the toppings: homemade chorizo and sliced jalapeño peppers.
Even the dough gets a Mexican makeover because it is baked on a cast iron comal (Mexican griddle) and sprinkled with a little masa harina in order to achieve a crispier crust.
For the dough, go to the bakery store of your local grocery store and ask for pizza dough. Otherwise, I like to prepare beer batter dough. For the cheese, I recommend using a Mexican cheese blend if the others are unavailable. For the pizza sauce, you can alternate between tomato sauce or your choice of jarred salsa.
