Chile Verde Pizza - Does this sound good or gross?
« on: September 30, 2016, 06:11:34 PM »
I am planning on a few pies tomorrow.  Most will be traditional/typical - pepperoni, sausage, etc.  I want at least one to be unusual.
So, I have some leftover chili verde in the fridge (pork in a sauce of jalapeños, tomatillos, garlic, onion, corn, some spices).

If I use the sauce as a base, top with mozzarella and the pork (shredded) - does that sound good or does it sound gross?

Mozzarella is close enough to oaxaca to work. I did mozzarella with menonita once too!

With some full flavored pork or beef, sounds GREAT!

Looks great as you posted above, but sounds gross (your word, I would say unappetizing) on a pizza.  Probably wouldn't be bad, but not the best use of the ingredients.  There's a reason it usually goes in a corn tortilla.

Thanks all for the encouragement (mostly) and the opinions.  Much appreciated.

We loved the way the pizza came out.  Will make it again if / when the chile verde production and pizza production coincide again!

I posted about it here: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=26286.msg451066#msg451066

Great idea, thanks.  We were also planning on sprinkling some arugula over the pie, post-bake.  We were too ready to eat the pizza and forgot!  No harm done.  ;D

New Mexico - based pizza is awesome. Carne adovada, hatch green chile, Oaxacan and Chihuahua cheese, Sautéed onion, Posole, cilantro and a few eggs on top. Fine!

Good looking pizza Mitch.  I've experimented a little with a green chili pizza also.  Those flavors seem to work great on pizza in my opinion.  You might want to check out this post if you haven't seen it already for a green chili Sicilian type pizza:

salsa verde on anything is a good thing. I have thought about making a pulled pork with salsa verde, but just haven't made it happen yet. Whenever the wife makes pulled pork I, think I'll use some in a pizza, but then - well it gets eaten before the pizza gets made.

I made a green chile pizza not too long ago. Black beans, diced green chiles, green chile sauce, shredded chicken topped with sour cream. Muy bueno!

Duke;
I did something similar last year to what you did. Due to an early frost we have an abundance  of green tomatoes, more that we could fry and eat, so I made them into almost a gallon of green picante sauce. I used the picante sauce as a substitute for sauce on some of my pizzas, used a blend of mozzarella and white cheddar cheese, then used either chicken or pork for the meat topping, added some black beans, onion and slices of fresh tomato. After the pizza was sliced we added dollops of sour cream to each slice. It made for a nice change from my regular pizzas and I didn't hear any complaints either :).
