Thanks for the kind words everyone. It's a take off on my chile relleno(ray/yawn/o) pizza. I don't care for deep frying but do like the roasted pablano peppers with different fillings so I came up with something different. I have never tried to batter the rellenos and then bake the pizza, I have made baked chili relleno casseroles in the past but in the four or five minutes bake time for pizza I'm not sure the batter would bake totally. I guess there is only one way to find out......

Another submission to this months challenge of “peppers” is the one Nancy Silverton’s focaccia I made last evening with peppers.

Don,

Last year I had some leftover chiles rellenos - poblanos stuffed with cheese and fried in an eggy batter. I sliced them into rounds and used them as a topping for a pizza. I think I posted about it somewhere here, but the search function isn't cooperating with me right now. It was a great use for leftovers, but not something I would make from scratch just for pizza.

caribe chiles stuffed with homemade chorizo...
slow cooked tomato sauce followed with Pepper Jack cheese...
thin sliced onions and the stuffed peppers with oregano sprinkled as garnish...

Good grief that sounds good. It's like reading a pizza romance novel.

Man, Don and Norma, those looked so good they made me make a pizza when I had no plans to do so.

Poblano and Anaheim peppers sliced to rings and grilled with white onion in ghee and cracked black pepper over provolone and Monterrey jack, with some grape tomatoes and a dusting of cilantro and Sarvechhio.

Here is one inspired by Don's tuna and Omid's little fish.

Tomato, oregano, sardines, olives, garlic slices, and sliced calabrian Chiles sauteed in EVOO (oil and all spooned over the pie before baking). When it comes to heat, the picture doesn't do it justice. It was SPICY!

This is one of the best pies I've ever made. Talk about a pie made for red wine. I had a bottle of '98 E&E Black Pepper Shiraz open. It's almost "light" for a big shiraz and friuty, round, and really oaky. Together with this pie, the combination was just over the top.

I might as well post the 3 pizzas I made with peppers yesterday.  I have another idea for next week with peppers in the dough, but don't know how that will work.
