Roasted Red Pepper & Chorizo Pizza
I think this is going to become a winter staple meal in our house. Sweet and tangy homemade roasted red peppers paired with spicy chorizo sausage on a thin layer of homemade tomato sauce, sprinkled with a hard cheese and some bitter greens. Mmmm I wish I had leftovers...
One of my favourite preserving blogs Food In Jars, has a really cute feature called "Preserves in Action" that's a showcase for how and when to use preserves. Some are as simple as jam on toast, but most are creative ways to use up your precious homemade preserves. This pizza feels like a decent example of my own Preserves in Action because I was able to use two preserves to make this pizza, the tomato sauce and roasted red peppers.
150ml jar of homemade tomato sauce (you could easily use more, I just didn't want to open up a bigger jar)
2 chorizo sausages, cooked and chopped
a few thin slices of red onion
a handful of roasted red pepper, sliced thinly
parmesan cheese, grated finely with a rasp
handful of arugula
Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
Roll out dough to desired thickness and spread tomato sauce all over dough. Sprinkle chopped chorizo, sliced onion and roasted red pepper evenly over pizza. Cover in a thin layer of cheese and bake for 12-15 minutes.
Before serving add fresh arugula.
