Chorizo Pizza

image

My husband and I love chorizo and I’ve been dying to try to make chorizo pizza!  I mean why not?!?!   I was planning on using naan bread for the pizza however I found that the same company that makes the garlic naan bread I love also makes pizza crust!!! Score!!!

image

I even hit the chorizo jackpot!  I was a little concerned about where I was going to find ground chorizo – I thought I might have to buy them in the links and then remove the ground sausage from the link.  Giant had Hatfield brand ground chorizo on sale 2/$5!

I used a mixture of spanish cheese & mozzarella cheese for my cheese.

image

I shredded both cheeses & mixed them together in a bowl.

image

I bought some tiny orange tomatoes to add on to my pizza.  I figured a pop of color & a little bit of a tomato might be delicious since this isn’t a “tomato sauce” pizza.

image

I sprinkled the cheese directly on the store bought naan pizza crust.

I added the chorizo to the pizza & sliced the tomatoes in ½.  Then I drizzled on sweet baby ray’s sriracha wing sauce.

I baked the pizza as instructed on the back of the naan pizza package and once the cheese was melted, it was ready to go!

image

The pizza was a hit!  The naan pizza crust was just crispy enough & the chorizo & sriracha sauce were perfectly spicy.  The cilantro puts this pizza over the top and on my definitely must make again list!
