Grilling pizza is one of the best ways to cook an old favorite, especially in that period of the summer when it's too hot to deal with an oven. Today I bring you an easy and delicious recipe for grilled pizza with poblano pepper. "Rajas poblanas", or strips of poblano pepper, are a Mexican dish made by combining poblano pepper, onion, garlic, Mexican cream or sour cream, and cheese. This dish can be served with scrambled eggs, as a taco filling, or with quesadillas. This time I added it to a pizza and it turned out delicious. I used Pillsbury™ Thin Crust Pizza Crust to make the recipe easier, but you can make your own dough if you prefer.

Ingredients

  • 1 can (11 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Thin Crust Pizza Crust
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 white onion, sliced
  • 4 poblano peppers
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup of Mexican cream or sour cream
  • 1/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese, grated

Directions

  • 1
    To make the rajas: Roast the poblano peppers directly on the burner, making sure to move them constantly so they don't burn. Put them in a plastic bag for 5 minutes.
  • 2
    Remove from the bag and peel. Carefully trim the tops and remove the seeds. Slice into strips and set aside.
  • 3
    Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a big frying pan at medium-high heat. Add the onions and poblano peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 7 to 8 minutes.
  • 4
    Add the garlic and oregano; cook for 1 more minute. Remove from heat and add the cream and cheese. Mix well and season with salt and pepper.
  • 5
    For the pizza: Brush the dough with remaining olive oil. Put the dough on the grill. Let dough cook for 1 minute per side. Use tongs to lift the dough from time to time to keep it from burning.
  • 6
    Remove dough from the grill and put the rajas poblanas on top. Serve immediately.
