This Chorizo Pizza Will Blow Your Mind

Chorizo Pizza


It's Friday afternoon, you still have time to run to your local Whole Foods and grab some chorizo. Buy it pre-sliced if it's available.  This chorizo pizza will blow your mind. Here is what you will need: chorizo, fresh mozzarella, grated fontina and a little bit of parsley.  

Once your back, pre-heat your Baking Steel & grab one of your doughs (you have better have a stash of fresh dough in your refrigerator). Stretch out your dough, place it on a peel and layer the cheese.  Grab 7 slices of chorizo and distribute on top.  The chorizo will be the star and you can take all the credit!
