Chorizo and Manchego Breakfast Pizza
Eggs and chorizo on a cheese pizza? Sounds like an excellent breakfast to us. If only we could get the crust to crisp and the eggs to cooperate.
Why This Recipe Works
Chorizo and Manchego Breakfast Pizza is an easy, unexpected crowd favorite for a Sunday brunch, but it comes with a challenge: achieving a crisp, golden-brown crust without overcooking the eggs. To get there, we press room-temperature dough into a lightly oiled sheet pan and parbake it for 5 minutes to give the crust a head start before we add the toppings. Warm spices and subtle heat from the chorizo, along with nuttiness from the Manchego cheese, give this pizza distinct flavors. The surprising addition of cottage cheese tethers all the ingredients together with a silky creaminess.
