Is it okay if I make this one a little bit differently this time? I wish to go somewhat Mexican style. This means we are going to swap out the usual pizza sauce and replace it with hot enchilada sauce, and include chorizo as one of the toppings. First we get to roll out the dough. In the interest of saving time, I picked up this garlic herb dough from my local Trader Joe's. It's actually quite good. Here it is rolled and fitted to my GraniteWare pan.

Next comes that sauce. I added a touch of masa harina, much like one would for chili, to thicken it up just a tad and enhance the flavor.

Next for the cheese. Shredded moozarella and a touch of cheddar:

And the toppings-- fried chorizo, pulled chicken, sliced red bell pepper, black olives, garlic, and pineapple:

Out to the pit:

Going indirect this time to let the dough slowly bake to a delicious bready goodness. And we're gonna blast it with heavy mesquite smoke for the short time it's on there. Look!-- We have a pope!

Let's see what we got, how it turned out. Yeah, I guess that looks about done.

Enough. Let's plate it and eat it. Muy sabroso, delightful to me! :grin:

Oh yeah, here you can see I incorporated a little corn meal on the bottom of the crust.

Yes, K-Jun. It can even be brown. When brown, they label it as "better for browning." I much prefer it to a stone because you don't have to worry about it cracking, breaking, it's lightweight, and rises up to temp immediately being a terrific conductor of heat. :grin:

Bbqbull, I went about 350 for about a half hour. There's much latitude in baking doughs. One can get a crispier crust with a higher temp. But there's a caveat. If your dough has extra sugar and/or oil in it, you can blacken that crust quicker than sooner with too high a heat. Moreover, if herbs are incorporated into the dough, something in flavor gets lost in translation, I feel. :grin:

I've done a few pizzas and have yet to do one that is the traditional flavor. Too many other interesting things to try! One I like is pulled pork with a little BBQ sauce (along with other stuff, of course.)

On yours I might have added some Ranchero cheese to extend the theme, but that's because we have some in the fridge at the moment. :wink:
