Carnita Pizza

We made carnita pizza with our leftovers from last week.  This pizza was so good we had it two nights in a row!  No joke.

 So glad I have a pizza stone now.  It really makes the crust have a nice crisp.

Carnita Pizza

  • 1/2 recipe for homemade pizza dough
  • leftover carnitas (more or less meat to your taste)
  • red onion, diced
  • mozzarella
  • queso fresco
  • cilantro, chopped fine
  • 1 recipe for adobe chili sauce (we doubled the recipe and used the extra sauce for dipping)
  1. Roll out the pizza dough on a silicon mat sprinkled with a little cornmeal.
  2. Spread the adobe chili sauce over the dough, in a nice even layer. Sprinkle on red onion and pork. Top with queso fresco and mozzarella cheese.
  3. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, or until cheese begins to brown.
  4. Serve with more adobe chili sauce for dipping and fresh cilantro sprinkled across the top.

Notes:  You can also brush the crust with olive oil, garlic and adobe sauce, and then circle the adobe chili sauce across the cooked pizza to have a pretty garnish/finish.
