So I made my own pizza for dinner tonight. I ran out of tomatoes or anything to make a standard pizza sauce, so I improvised and used salsa instead.
- Grated cheddar and pepper jack cheese
- Sautéed onions with fresh garlic and ginger
- Chicken slices that were cooked with the sautéed onions
- Diced red peppers
- Fresh basil
- Various seasonings
Surprisingly, the pizza tasted pretty well. The salsa ended up baking a lot better than I thought it would, plus it added a bit of a kick to the pizza’s flavor. I feared that the salsa was going to get super runny and drip off the pizza. Though it doesn’t beat real pizza sauce, at least I now know that salsa is a decent alternative.
