Mexican Pizza

This pizza is so easy & so DE-lish! I've been using this recipe for pizza dough for years now and it's fool proof! Really, you can't mess it up. The quick enchilada sauce is dynamite for all your Mexican recipes... you can use store bought sauce but...why? 

Pizza Crust 
1 cup warm water
1 pkg yeast- or 2 1/4 tsp 
dash of sugar
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1-2 tbsp olive oil
2 &1/2 cups flour- can substitute with whole wheat flour

Combine warm water with yeast & sugar in a small bowl and set aside until foamy. Pour yeast mixture in larger bowl and add oil, salt, & 2 cups flour. Mix well and add just enough flour until the dough no longer sticks to sides of the bowl. Knead on a floured surface for about 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl, cover & let rise for 25-30 minutes.

While dough is rising combine enchilada sauce- 
Enchilada Sauce-
1- 8 ounce can tomato sauce
1/2 tsp salt
few cracks black pepper- about 1/4 tsp
1/4 tsp chili powder
1 tsp dried onion flakes- or 1 tbsp fresh minced onion
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp sugar
Combine all ingredients in small bowl & set aside

When dough is ready, roll out to the size of pizza you want. I bake mine on a pizza stone so I roll it out to fit that but you can make this on a cookie sheet if you don't have a stone. Once dough is rolled out spread enchilada sauce evenly over top. Sprinkle with about 1 cup colby jack cheese (use whatever cheese you like) Then add whatever Mexican toppings you like... think taco toppings!! I added black beans, corn, diced tomatoes, chopped black olives. The toppings are up to you!! Jalepeno peppers would be awesome too! Bake at 500 degrees for about 8-10 minutes on pizza stone. Remove from oven & top with chopped fresh green onions & cilantro. Serve each slice with sour cream & salsa!! YUMM!!

Mexican Pizza Perfect!!!
