Original recipe yields 1 pizza

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Cook ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat until meat is browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes. Season meat with cumin, chipotle pepper, ancho chili powder, and salt. Stir in poblano pepper slices and green onions; cook until beef juices caramelize onto beef and peppers.
  3. Hold a paper towel with tongs and use it to wipe the skillet clean of excess grease. Tilt the pan to get as much as possible. Pour marinara sauce into meat mixture and continue to cook and stir until pepper strips are slightly tender, 2 to 3 more minutes.
  4. Roll pizza crust into a large rectangle on a floured work surface and place onto a large baking sheet lightly dusted with flour. Use tongs to pick out pepper strips from sauce and distribute them evenly onto the crust; spread rest of meat sauce over crust. Spread pepperjack cheese over top.
  5. Place pizza on the bottom of the preheated oven and bake for 6 minutes. Move pizza to the middle of the stove; continue baking until pizza crust is browned and cheese is bubbling and melted, 8 to 10 more minutes.
  6. Remove pizza from pan and slide pizza onto a cooling rack to prevent crust from becoming soggy. Cool for about 10 minutes before slicing.

Chef John beat me to the posting of this recipe. At least you all get to taste it Sooner then if I had submitted it! (This comment is for the AR GODS). Anyhow, I mixed a little spaghetti sauce to the chipotle sauce since I had both opened in the fridge, I smeared it around the crust after I flipped the dough over on the grill. I added the cooked crumbled Italian sausage & pepperoni. I spent the afternoon roasting Hatch chilies, so I chopped up a couple and on they went too! Topped the whole thing with cheese, let it melt. I served my hubby right on the cutting board! I thought it made a unique serving vessel. He went CRAZYYYYYY for this pizza!! Wish I could give this 10 *'s! !! THANK YOU Chef John. Keeper for sure :))
