Portuguese Chorizo Pizza

  • Yield: Two 10-inch pizzas



  • Preheat the oven to 500?F. Lightly grease two baking sheets.
  • One at a time, pull and gently stretch each pizza dough portion into a 6-inch round. Put each piece of dough on a greased baking sheet. Pat each out to a 10- to 12-inch round, about 1/8 inch thick. Spread 1/2 cup of the tomato sauce on each round, leaving a 1-inch border. Arrange the chorizo on top of the sauce and top with a thin layer of the cheese.
  • Bake until the dough is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly, about 20 minutes, switching the pans from top to bottom after 10 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.
