Spicy Mexican-Style Veggie Pizza for 90-Degree Days

Mexican-Style Veggie Pizza

The summer heat is real! As we approach another week of 90 degree days and Southern temperatures, I want to share with you a recipe that beats the heat with spice combining my two favourite cuisines in one recipe: Mexican-Style Veggie Pizza! This refreshing alternative with cooling avocados, spicy Jalapeños is reinterpreting the Italian classic with a Mexican twist. The result is a fiery, colourful pair, which is most of all simply delicious :)

Instructions

  1. Prepare a pre-dough by filling the flour into a medium-size bowl. Form a whole in the middle and crumble the yeast in it, carefully stir with some of the water and a pinch of sugar.
  2. Leave for about 15 minutes.
  3. Mix the flour with the rest of the water and knead well to a soft dough. Leave again for at least 1 hour so the yeast can rise.
  4. Preheat the oven to 420 degrees Fahrenheit (220 degrees Celsius).
  5. Roll out the dough on a floured baking surface into a round shape.
  6. Put the dough on a greased baking trey and evenly spread the tomato puree, sprinkle the chopped garlic and the cheddar cheese.
  7. Top the pizza with sliced bell peppers, kidney beans, red onions, cherry tomatoes, corn and sliced jalapeños.
  8. Bake the pizza in the oven for about 15-20 minutes.
  9. Enjoy the Mexican-style pizza with refreshing diced avocados and tabasco if you like.
