Homemade Mexican Pizza Recipe

Publisher Photo
Patrick Conyers impressed his wife-to-be with his homemade pizza on their very first date...and the two have been cooking together ever since. "Since Angela's family is Mexican-American, and I'm from the Midwest, I combined flavors from both backgrounds in this pizza," he pens from Iowa City, Iowa.

Nutritional Facts

1 slice equals 300 calories, 11 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 47 mg cholesterol, 765 mg sodium, 28 g carbohydrate, 4 g fiber, 23 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 3 lean meat, 2 starch.

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine 1/2 cup flour, cornmeal, yeast, salt and sugar. In a saucepan, heat water, milk and oil to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat until smooth. Beat in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  2. Punch dough down. On a floured surface, roll dough into a 13-in. circle. Transfer to a 14-in. pizza pan coated with cooking spray; build up edges slightly. Prick dough several times with a fork. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Spread salsa over crust. Top with the beans, chicken, onion, chilies, cheese, tomato, jalapeno and cilantro. Bake 12-15 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. Yield: 8 slices.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
