Mexican Chorizo-Jalapeno Pizza

If you like spicy, you're going to love the combination of flavors in this pizza. Chorizo, fresh jalapenos, fire roasted tomatoes, onions, and a blend of cheeses made for one tasty pizza!

I'm happy with the pizza dough recipe I've been using lately. I adapted PW's recipe in that I reduced the amount of oil (her 1/3 cup to my 1 tablespoon). Also, she'll have you pour this, add that, mix, add more. I just dump all the ingredients into the bowl of my KA at once, turn it on and it's done. Easy, and it's ready to use pretty much right away. No letting rise, no punching down. Super easy!
Add more jalapenos to this, or don't use as many, depending on your heat tolerance. You might want to add some bacon, sprinkle some chopped cilantro over it, or maybe top it off with a dollop of sour cream. It's good!

  6. Thanks, Susan, I'm drooling now! It looks delicious with chorizo and all the good flavors. Just curious, is Mexican food served frequently in Montana?
