This pizza is spicy, but it’s not dumb spicy.
What I mean is – it’s not so completely hot that you can’t even eat it. It’s enough heat to make you sweat though!

Obviously, you need to grate the cheese for a pizza. I used about four ounces of each, which gave the final pizza an amazing flavor. You could use just one cheese if you wanted, though.
When you’re ready to make a pizza, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and roll out the pizza dough on a baking sheet. I used Pillsbury Artisan Wheat Dough for this pizza.
Bake the dough for 6 minutes with nothing on it so the crust firms up a bit. Then remove the pizza from the oven and spread the pizza sauce on top.
Top the pizza with cheese, naturally!
I also added some sliced red peppers and chopped Hatch green chiles for some extra heat and flavor.
Stick the pizza back in the oven for 13-14 minutes until the dough is browned and the cheese is wonderfully melted.
When the pizza comes out, chop it up and garnish it with some fresh cilantro.
Don’t let the heat beat you on this one!Nick thinks you should have some milk at the ready for this recipe. Be sure to check out his blog, Macheesmo, and follow him on his Tablespoon Profile.
