Recipe of The Month: Grilled Nacho Pizza Recipe
What do you call pizza that’s not yours? Nacho pizza!
Feel free to use that one whenever you deem the situation appropriate (ie: when making the pizza, when eating the pizza, when going to your annual checkup, in the middle of a trial of sorts, if trying to entertain yourself when stranded on an island somewhere and your only true hope is that there will be pizza in your future). You’re welcome.
Grilled Nacho Pizza
Serves 4 (or one, depending on your hunger level)
1-pound pizza dough (store-bought or homemade)
All-purpose flour, for your hands
1/3 cup refried beans
¼ cup salsa, plus more, to serve
½ green pepper
8 cherry tomatoes
Pickled jalapenos (we can’t tell you how many to use! You might be a one-slicer, or a whole bottle kinda person… you decide.)
Grated cheese (1-2 cups)
Sour cream, to serve
2 green onions, sliced
Step 1: Assemble your ingredients and preheat the grill to medium heat.
Step 2: Divide dough into four equally sized balls, and then stretch or roll the dough out until nice and thin.
Step 3: Place the rolled dough between greased sheets of parchment.
Step 4: Cup up your veggies, yo! But not the onions. Those are for later.
Step 5: Mix the refried beans and salsa up in a bowl.
Step 6: Place the dough on the grill, and cook until it’s all bubbly.
Step 7: Flip it, and spread the refried bean mixture over top of the cooked side.
Step 8: Top immediately with all of your beautifully cut veggies and pickled jalapenos.
Step 9: Sprinkle cheese over top, and close the lid. Reduce the heat slightly, and let the pizza cook for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted
Step 10: See? Like that.
Step 11: Top the finished pizzas with some extra salsa, sour cream, and the green onions. Enjoy!
