Is it okay if I make this one a little bit differently this time? I wish to go somewhat Mexican style. This means we are going to swap out the usual pizza sauce and replace it with hot enchilada sauce, and include chorizo as one of the toppings. First we get to roll out the dough. In the interest of saving time, I picked up this garlic herb dough from my local Trader Joe's. It's actually quite good. Here it is rolled and fitted to my GraniteWare pan.

Image

Next comes that sauce. I added a touch of masa harina, much like one would for chili, to thicken it up just a tad and enhance the flavor.

Image

Next for the cheese. Shredded moozarella and a touch of cheddar:

And the toppings-- fried chorizo, pulled chicken, sliced red bell pepper, black olives, garlic, and pineapple:

Image

Out to the pit:

Image

Going indirect this time to let the dough slowly bake to a delicious bready goodness. And we're gonna blast it with heavy mesquite smoke for the short time it's on there. Look!-- We have a pope!

Image

Let's see what we got, how it turned out. Yeah, I guess that looks about done.

Image

Enough let's plate it and eat it. Muy sabroso, delightful to me! :D

Image

Oh yeah, here you can see I incorporated a little corn meal on the bottom of the crust.

BC,

Beautiful pictures of what looks to me a perfect pizza. Great choice on toppings. chorizo is one of my favorite things and Pineapple on a pizza is really good.

How did you like the sauce that you made up, that's a pretty creative alternative to pizza sauce, I have never used masa harina before. Going to have to google that one.

Nicely done, BC! :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Sroach, I really, really enjoyed the enchilada sauce. I would say that is the preferred sauce for going with toppings that feature well in Mexican cuisine (including fajita meat and pulled pork). But if one is going with say, pepperoni, Italian sausage, (i.e. Italian cuisine), then one might prefer the regular piizza sauce. Masa is used to make tamales for example, and is a wonderful thickener for chilis, as it also significantly enhances the flavor. :D

CBG-- You got 'em, my pleasure. Great in certain dips, too!

Toby-- Funny you should mention jalapenos... I was going to include those, but thought perhaps the enchilada sauce already brought enough heat to the table.

Jim!!! Thank you for your most kind words! I'm tempted to try with other salsas as well, perhaps even a green tomatillo. :cheers:
