  • 2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


  • 1 cup chipotle sauce
  • 6 ounces cooked chorizo
  • ½ small onion chopped
  • ½ cup black beans
  • ½ cup corn
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper sliced
  • 1 roasted poblano pepper sliced
  • 1.5 cups shredded white and yellow cheeses I used Monterrey Jack and Cheddar


  • Add the water to a bowl and stir in the yeast until it is dissolved. Stir in sugar, salt and oil.
  • Add the flour and hand mix until a dough ball forms. Knead it a couple of minutes. If it feels too sticky, add a bit more flour.
  • Lightly grease a bowl, add the dough, and roll it around to grease all sides of it. Cover and let rise on your counter about 30 minutes. It should double in size.
  • Roll the dough into a 12-inch round. Hand form the edges for the outer crust.
  • Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • First, spread out the chipotle sauce, then all of your toppings. Finish with the shredded cheeses.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until the crust is nice and crispy.
  • Cool slightly, then slice and serve.
