We all know pizza is a universally-loved Italian dish. My family especially adores it because I like to make it at home. I know how many pizza joints there are where I could easily go pick one up or have it delivered. The thing is I make it special for my boys. They happen to love chorizo (spicy Mexican sausage), so I prepare chorizo pizza with black olives often. It all started about a year ago when some close friends, Ford and Lacey, gave me a pizza stone as a gift. I remember feeling both intimidated and extremely happy at the thought of making homemade pizza. It actually took me about 6 months before I attempted my first pie. But ever since then, I make pizza on a regular basis. Sometimes with, and other times without the pizza stone. This recipe is easier than most think and a lot of fun to customize. I have vegetarian family members as well as huge meat eaters, so I love the challenge of making super delicious pizzas that will tickle everyone’s fancy. With this chorizo olive pizza, I please the Mexican pork lovers in my brood. I like to invite close friends when I make it, because the taste totally blows everyone away.
