I love pizza, and I like making it much more homemade, although you don’t always have the time or the foresight to make a good dough. But if we stick with the idea of a flat base with topped baked ingredients and good melted cheese, this crispy fake chorizo, and Havarti cheese pizza may be a good alternative.
Don’t expect the texture or flavor of pizza dough, this imposter version is a dough made with chemical yeast or booster and is very crisp, like a salty cookie. It is very simple and quick to prepare and allows you to make a large unit or divide it into small portions to prepare a snack. In this case, the Havarti cheese melts wonderfully with a mild flavor that combines very well with good chorizo with its spicy point.
Ingredients for 1 large unit
- For the dough: 140 g of wholemeal flour, 155 g of flour, 15 g of cornstarch, 1 teaspoon of chemical yeast (booster), 1 teaspoon of salt, 180 ml of water, 50 ml of olive oil.
- For the filling: olive oil, oregano, thyme, 200 g of Havarti cheese, 100 g of spicy chorizo, 50 g of goat cheese, black pepper, coarse salt.
How to make fake crunchy pizza with Havarti cheese and chorizo
Preheat the oven to 220ºC and cover a tray with parchment paper. Place the whole flour, flour, cornstarch, chemical yeast and salt in a bowl, mixing everything. Add the olive oil and water, and work the ingredients until you get a homogeneous mass, neither very dry nor sticky, pliable.
Knead by hand lightly on a clean surface and form a ball. Roll out with the help of a rolling pin until it is very fine. Transfer to the prepared tray. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with a little thyme and oregano.
Distribute the Havarti cheese, then the chorizo, and finally the crumbled goat cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until the dough has browned and the cheese is well melted. Wait a few minutes out of the oven.
The faux crispy pizza with Havarti cheese and chorizo is much better enjoyed freshly made, with the freshly melted cheese and chorizo exhaling all their aroma. The base, not being raised, fills more than that of an authentic pizza, so it is a good idea to serve it as part of a company snack meal. Being very crisp, it holds almost any extra ingredient that we want to add to it well.
