Skip the plane fare, and take your palate to Spain instead! This flavorful riff on sausage cheese pizza is fancy enough for entertaining, but easy enough for a weeknight dinner.
Updated September 20, 2016

Ingredients

  • 1 can (11 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated thin pizza crust
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cup shredded Manchego cheese (4 oz)
  • 1/2 cup sliced roasted red bell peppers (from a jar), patted dry
  • 1/4 cup quartered Spanish or Italian green olives
  • 1/4 lb ground chorizo sausage, cooked and drained
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced on the bias
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray. Unroll dough on cookie sheet; press into 15x10-inch rectangle. In small bowl, mix olive oil and garlic. Brush crust with olive oil mixture. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown.

    Top partially baked crust with Manchego cheese, followed by roasted peppers and olives, then chorizo. Top with mozzarella cheese. Bake 7 to 11 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Top with green onions and cilantro.

  • Ground chorizo is generally available in 1-lb packages. Cook the whole package, use a quarter for this recipe, then use the rest to fill omelets or stir into pasta or chili.
  • While standard Spanish Manzanilla olives work well in this recipe, if you can find Italian Castelvetrano olives, their beautiful color and flavor can’t be beat!
