    Spicy Chorizo & Mushroom Pizza w/ Pickled Onions & Honey DrizzleI

    Spicy chorizo, sliced mushrooms, fresh mozzarella, spicy pickled red onions, and a honey drizzle top this sweet basil marinara sauce pizza.


    Pizza Dough: Dough for pizza can be created with a wide variety of flours, from all-purpose to bread flour to semolina, and can be rolled out thin and crispy or thick and chewy, depending on personal preference. Some common alternatives to pizza dough are store-bought crusts, tortillas, and even sliced bread.

    Spicy Pickled Onions: Spicy pickled onions are onions pickled in a brine made of vinegar, water, and spices. They have an acidic, peppery flavor and are often thinly sliced. Adding pickled onions to pizzas is fantastic since they create a tangy and refreshing contrast to the other toppings.

    Marinara Sauce: Pizzas typically have the traditional Italian tomato-based Marinara sauce. It is generally seasoned with salt, pepper, and a touch of sugar and consists of crushed or puréed tomatoes, garlic, and herbs. Tomato sauce, sliced tomatoes, or pesto are all acceptable alternatives to marinara sauce.

    Spicy Chorizo: Chorizo, a spicy sausage famous in Spanish and Mexican cooking, is an excellent example of the cuisine’s fiery flair. It’s a pork product combining chili peppers, paprika, and other spices. Sliced chorizo makes a healthy topping or a savory addition when crushed and incorporated with the cheese on a pizza.

    Cremini Mushrooms: Also called baby bella mushrooms or brown mushrooms, creminis are wild mushrooms that taste similar to button mushrooms but have a more earthy undertone. Sliced cremini mushrooms can be either raw or cooked briefly in oil and then topped on the pizza.

    Olive oil: a versatile cooking medium, is frequently called for in pizza recipes to help keep the crust soft and offer a hint of nutty flavor. It can brush the crust for a golden and crispy finish or drizzle over the dough before the toppings are added. You can also use olive oil for cooking the pizza’s toppings before topping the pie with them.

    Mozzarella: Pizzas typically feature mozzarella because it melts evenly and creates a smooth, velvety surface when baked.


    1. Heat the oven to 550°F (Preheat your pizza stone if you have one)
    2. Throw your sliced mushrooms into a bowl with salt, freshly ground pepper, red wine vinegar, and olive oil. Roll the mushrooms around, so they’re well covered in the sauce.
    3. Get the dough as big as you want, and then leave a 1/2-inch border for the crust.
    4. Evenly coat the dough with the basil marinara sauce, then brush the olive oil over the crust’s perimeter.
    5. Spread the chorizo and mushrooms out in a single layer across the pie. Mozzarella cheese that has just been grated is the perfect topping.
    6. Place the pizza in the oven and cook for about 15 minutes, until the crust is crisp and the cheese begins to brown. On a baking sheet, bake for 8 minutes, whereas a pizza stone needs 6 to 8.
    7. Take the pizza out of the oven and let it cool for 5-10 minutes before cutting it.
    8. Pickled onions and a honey drizzle are great toppings.

    Guidelines for both preparation and preservation

    Suggestions for Serving:

    • Hot and fresh from the oven is the ideal time to enjoy a slice of the Spicy Chorizo and Mushroom Pizza with Pickled Onions and Honey.
    • It’s versatile enough to serve as the main course or an appetizer at any formal or informal meal.
    • Serve the pizza with a salad, garlic bread, or soup to make a hearty meal.
    • Fresh herbs, like basil or parsley, sprinkled on top of the pizza before serving adds a new dimension of flavor and texture.
    • Any leftover pizza can be eaten cold as a snack or reheated the next day for a simple and fast meal.


    • Refrigerating leftover pizza in an airtight container or plastic wrap is the best option.
    • A pizza slice can be reheated in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute, depending on how hot you like it. Alternately, you can bake the piece in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) for 5-10 minutes or until heated.
    • In a refrigerator, the pizza will keep for up to three days.
    • The pizza can be frozen before baking for maximum storage convenience. To keep the pizza for up to three months, put it on a baking sheet or pan, cover it tightly with plastic wrap, and place it in the freezer. Put the frozen pizza in the oven and bake it as directed in the recipe, adding a few minutes to the total baking time if necessary.
