Salsa Chorizo Pizzas Recipe

Salsa Chorizo Pizza

Salsa:    3 cups chopped seeded tomatoes

1 medium onion, chopped

2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped

1 poblano pepper, seeded and chopped

1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro

¼ cup lime juice

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 garlic clove, minced

1 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. ground cumin

½ tsp. salt

Pizza:    1 loaf (1 lb.) frozen bread dough, thawed

3 Tbsp. olive oil

2 cups (8 oz.) shredded Mexican cheese blend

½ lb. chorizo, cooked and crumbled


In a large bowl, combine the salsa ingredients; set aside.

Divide dough into fourths.  On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into 8 inch circle.  Lightly brush both sides of dough with oil; place on grill. Cover and grill over medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until the bottom is lightly browned.

Remove from the grill.  Top the grilled side of each pizza with ½ cup cheese, ¼ cup chorizo and ½ cup salsa.  Return to the grill.  Cover and cook for 4-5 minutes or until the bottom is browned and cheese is melted.  Refrigerate remaining salsa.          4 servings
