Magic Gooey Chocolate Meringue Texas Sheet Cake.
So this cheesy onion, chorizo, spinach and artichoke pizza was not meant for today, but let’s just go with it.
I mean, let’s face it, pizza is good no matter what.
See, I wanted to save this pizza (here I go saving recipes again) for next week. It’s perfect for Monday night football and I thought posting it next week would be a little better idea, seeing as football starts on the eighth… but then this whole thing involving some chocolate, an obscene amount of eggs and a little powdered sugar happened and it consumed my life for the last three days. Meaning I didn’t get to make the recipe I wanted to for today. That recipe was a tad more summery than this pizza, but… oh well, you can never really go wrong with a great pizza.
I do want to tell you that after three failed attempts I finally got the recipe I have been working on (for way too many days) right. YEAH! It’s coming soon and it is so good.
But oh my gosh, it almost killed me in the process.
Anyway, the other week I realized it had been far too long since I had made pizza. With my family being gone most of the summer, pizza just didn’t happen that much. One little person, plus too many recipes being made each day equals just a lot of food. A lot went into the freezer, but my weekly pizzas did not get made.
Well, everyone’s back and food is literally disappearing by the second. So easy homemade pizzas it is. It’s a no brainer. Everyone eats pizza. Of course I had to make one minus any of the green stuff, but at least they eat tomato sauce. Not the actual tomatoes themselves, but they’ll eat tomato sauce. Craziness.
This pizza was one of those pizzas that just happened. Pretty sure it was a Friday night and I am pretty sure I was basically just grabbing everything that was left in fridge. To be honest, this is how I used to cook. I would look at what was in the fridge, figure out what to make from there… and hope it turned out.
I am a little more planned now since I am making so much more food, but I actually love when I get to just have fun in the kitchen and not worry TOO much about how it is going to look or taste. That is when I can really be most creative. I am not as concerned about whether people will like it, if the flavors are too weird, if the recipe is too long or hard, if the colors look horrible or how the heck I am going to photograph it. I almost forget sometimes what it feels like not to cook for the blog. It is these times when I actually get the rare chance to cook just because we need dinner and it’s not already made. This is when the best recipes often happen.
It’s the whole no pressure thing. When I don’t think and I just do, things just seem to work. I mean, sometimes they turn out terrible, but most of the time they end up being some of my favorite recipes.
That is this pizza. I wasn’t sure where I was going with it at first, but then I remembered this dip and I sort of went with those flavors. Caramelized onions, chorizo, spinach and artichokes. Such a great combo.
The caramelized onions make the pizza, but really, so does the chorizo.
And umm, isn’t chorizo used in a lot of breakfast hashes and things?? See, I think it is. This means that this pizza would be amazing with a fried egg. Not gonna lie, if you add a fried egg (or two or three) you’d be my hero.
Pizza plus Thursday equals good prep for Friday… and football!

Hey, and I keep hearing that Thursday is the new Friday? Is this true? Because I think I like the sound of that.
I cut the jalapeño because you told me to. Then I didn’t use the jalapeño because you didn’t tell me to 🙂 tasted great though!
Thanks for trying the recipe, the jalapeño can be added to step 4. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
Is it possible to use gluten free all purpose flour in this?
Hi Sadie! I have not tried this recipe with GF flour, but if you do I would suggest using cup4cup! Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with! xTieghan
I never thought of putting chorizo on pizza until seeing this! It was yum, thanks!
I have had this on my list of pizzas to make for awhile and finally made it last night. As always, another great HBH recipe with an unexpected but pleasant flavors. A fun homemade pizza recipe and perfect for winter since no one objects to hot oven when the temps are so cold.
I am so glad you enjoyed this Rachel! Homemade pizzas are one of my favorites for a cold night, especially because they’re so fun to make! Thank you!
Made this last night for dinner. It was delicious!!!! Love the flavors of the chorizo, onions and chipotle. We put it on the grill at around 350 using a gas grill. I rotated the crust a few times to even out the cooking/browning. Turned out perfect.
So happy you love this and great idea to grill it too! 🙂
I have no words.
I want a fork + those caramelized onions first, and then to eat this entire pizza. Please.
Haha! Thanks! Have a great Labor day weekend!
Your photography is soooo lovely! This pizza is frickin’ epic!
Thanks Alanna! Hope you are having a great weekend!
Looks amazing! I’m going to make it this weekend!
I’m a little confused about the cilantro though, where does that go? (or do you mean an additional 1/4 cup of basil?)
Thanks so much Kate!! I do mean basil, so sorry about that. Fixing the recipe now!
