Grilled Mexican chorizo pizza combines browned Mexican chorizo, diced onions, and shredded Monterey Jack cheese.
Pizza is one of my all time favorite foods. You can take the same basic ingredients- crust, cheese, meat and/or veggies and come up with a new taste every time
As you can see my pizza is a bit, shall we say, free form. For whatever reason dough does not like to form nice even rectangles for me. If you want perfectly shaped pizza you can press the dough on to a cookie sheet or a pizza pan then peel it off.
Grilling pizza isn’t an exact science. Some grills cook hotter than others so you may have to move the pizza to a cooler zone so the crust doesn’t burn before the cheese has a chance to melt.
If you don’t want to grill the pizza just bake at 425 for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and crust is crisp and golden.
