Spicy Beef and Chorizo Grilled Pizza


  • 1/2 pound Mexican-style pork chorizo sausage (removed from casing)
  • 23 ounces RAGU® Homestyle Thick & Hearty Meat Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle peppers (finely chopped, in adobo)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 4 thin pizza crust (small pre-baked, 7 ounces each)
  • 1 pound shredded Chihuahua cheese
  • 4 ounces queso fresco (crumbled)
  • 1 avocado (large, cut into ½-inch pieces)
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup crema (or sour cream)


  1. 1Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. 2Cook chorizo in medium non-stick skillet on medium-high heat 5-7 min. or until crisp, breaking up any large pieces; drain. Stir in sauce and chipotle peppers.
  3. 3Combine oil and garlic in small bowl; brush onto both sides of pizza crusts. Working with 2 crusts at a time, grill top-side down, 1-2 min. or until lightly browned.
