Ingredients

  • 1 lb pizza dough
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella drained and sliced
Grilled Tomato Salsa:
  • 6 plum tomatoes
  • 2 jalapeño pepper
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 4 cloves garlic (unpeeled)
  • 2 chipotle peppers seeded (or chipotle hot sauce to taste)
  • 1 clove garlic smashed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped fresh coriander

Method

Grilled Tomato Salsa: Place tomatoes, jalapeño peppers, onion and unpeeled garlic on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill until tender and charred, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool enough to handle.

Peel and core tomatoes, discarding juice; place in blender. Peel and seed jalapeño peppers; add to blender. Remove charred layer of onion; chop onion and add to blender. Squeeze garlic from skin into blender.

Add chipotle peppers, smashed garlic and salt ; blend until minced. Add coriander; blend until almost puréed. Scrape into bowl.

On lightly floured surface, stretch dough to 16- x 12-inch (40 x 30 cm) rectangle; brush with oil. Place, oiled side down, on grill over medium heat; close lid and grill just until grill-marked on bottom and bubbles form on top, 3 to 6 minutes. Turn and grill, covered, just until surface is cooked but not browned, about 1 minute. Remove from grill.

Spread 3/4 cup (175 mL) of the salsa over crust; cover with cheese. Grill, covered, until cheese is melted and bubbly and underside is browned, 3 to 8 minutes. Serve with remaining salsa to spoon over top.
