Creating the ultimate pizza

Mexican Pizza

After recently making the coconut flour tortillas, which can be found here, I wanted to try using it to make a pizza. I didn’t want to make just any pizza, however, I wanted to make the kind of pizza that they make tv shows about. With Ashley’s love of mexican food, I looked over our last few mexican recipes and just kind of mashed up a bunch of the common ingredients, and the end result was pretty great. I was also very happy with the way that the crust came out. I made it sicilian style, but I think making a traditional circular pizza would work just as well.

For the crust I just took the tortilla recipe 4 times over and then poured it evenly in a small cookie sheet. Based on the size of your sheet you may need to add or take away a batch or two of the recipe. Basically you want to cover the whole pan evenly with about an 1/8 inch of batter. I baked at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, and it came out just like a pizza crust.

Pizza Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 1/2 chopped green pepper
  • 1 can green chiles
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle in adobo sauce (blended or pureed)
  • 7 ounces sour cream
  • 8 ounces mexican cheese blend
  • 6 slices of jarred jalepeno (the kind for topping nachos)
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomato
  • 3 teaspoons taco seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

Cook the ground turkey in a pan with the green pepper and onion mixed in. Drain, and then return to pan, adding in green chiles.

Mix the sour cream with the chipotle and cover the crust as you would a pizza sauce. Cover with the ground turkey mixture, and then with the cheese. Sprinkle tomato bits over the top, and arrange the jalepeno slices evenly. Bake for 25 minutes at 250 degrees and enjoy.
