My mom always made pizza with chourico growing up and I loved it. I have redone it and added more protein - chicken! I love homemade pizza.

  • Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the chicken in the hot oil until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 5 to 10 minutes. Set aside.

  • Dust a flat working surface with flour. Roll the pizza dough out to the size of your pizza pan. Place dough on the prepared pan.

  • Stir the tomato sauce, 1 tablespoon olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl; spread evenly over the surface of the dough. Scatter, in order, the chicken, chourico, red onion, banana peppers, pizza cheese, and Parmesan over the tomato sauce mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven on the middle rack until the cheese is lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Switch the oven setting to broil and cook another 5 minutes.

This was delicious! I used my own whole wheat crust and omitted the banana peppers because I had none - added a little chopped red bell pepper and a few mushrooms I needed to use up. The addition of chicken makes this a very hearty meaty pizza and I love that unmistakeable chourico flavor and the garlicky sauce. Thanks Raquel! Read More

The taste of it satisfied my pizza craving. I had been searching a long time ago looking for informative recipe sites like gourmetrecipe which helped me improve my skills in cooking so far I have learned a lot from this very good site too. Thank you because my family and friends enjoyed foods which I have learned from these sites. Read More
