Grilled Mexican Chorizo Pizza

Grilled Mexican chorizo pizza combines browned Mexican chorizo, diced onions, and shredded Monterey Jack cheese.

With browned Mexican Chorizo, taco sauce, onion, and Monterey Jack cheese, this Grilled Mexican Chorizo Pizza is a south of the border spin on an Italian classic

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.

I can’t wait to try my Buffalo Chicken Pizza on the grill. I also think my Chicken and Spinach Alfredo Pizza would be delicious grilled.

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.
