Doctored-Up Frozen Meat Pizza Recipe
Active Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Ease of Preparation: Easy
- One 12-inch frozen pepperoni pizza, such as Chicago’s Home Run Inn
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, smashed
- 1 cup crumbled fresh chorizo
- 2 cups fresh spinach leaves
- 1/4 cup manchego cheese, grated
- 2 tablespoons quince paste
Preheat the oven according to the pizza package directions.
In a small saucepan, heat the olive oil and garlic over medium-low heat and let barely simmer, being careful to not brown the garlic, to infuse the oil, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
In a large skillet, cook the chorizo over medium heat, stirring frequently, until browned, about 5 minutes. Then add the spinach and manchego and cook, tossing, until the spinach wilts, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.
Put the frozen pizza onto a baking sheet and top with the chorizo mixture. Generously drizzle with the garlic-infused oil.
Add the quince paste to a small bowl and stir in 1 tablespoon of water to loosen it up. Brush over the crust of the pizza with a pastry brush.
Bake the pizza until the crust is golden and the topping is bubbling according to the package instructions. Let cool slightly before slicing into squares.
