Last week we picked up some Mexican chorizo at a Latin American market with the intention of making tacos. Didn't take long before we decided pizza deserved a spicy sausage treatment as well.
For those of you not familiar with it, Mexican chorizo is a pork sausage that's made with chile peppers and a variety of seasonings. Very tasty. Moderately spicy. A very dominant flavor that takes over everything around it.
Cue the jalapeños, onions and cilantro:
They also have dominant flavors that happen to go very nicely with said chorizo, which makes this one flavor-filled pizza.
While you're par-baking your crust, be sure to brown the chorizo and pour off the excess grease.
Layer the toppings like this:
- Par-baked crust
- Thin spread of salsa verde (green salsa made from tomatillos)
- Good ole mozzarella, grated
- White or red onions, thinly sliced in rings
- Jalapeño slices
- Browned chorizo
- Chopped cliantro
