This week I dug deep into to my freezer and found Trader Joe's pizza dough, chicken thighs, chorizo, and chile verde. The other essentials I had tucked away in the fridge and pantry. The end result was this flavorful pizza that blew our leftover expectations (and taste buds) out of the water!
Here are the ingredients you will need:
- pizza dough
- fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
- 2 links chorizo, casings removed
- 2 chicken thighs, skin removed
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp tomato paste
- 1 cup white wine
- 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
- 1/2 cup chile verde
Preheat an oven with a pizza stone at 500 degrees. Pull the pizza dough and set it on the hot pizza stone. Use a large spoon to spread the chorizo pizza sauce on the dough, then top with mozzarella slices, chicken, and a drizzle of chile verde. Cook the pizza for about 10 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbling. Remove it from the oven and let it cool for about 5-10 minutes (if you value your soft palate). Top with a sprinkle of cilantro and enjoy!
