"This is utterly amazing. The sauce truly makes it, and I have made this pizza many times since the first taste. It's incredible! Delicious, light, and very tasty. You can adjust the heat by using more or less chipotles in the sauce or omitting the jalapenos. This is by far one of my favorites recipes ever."
