Chorizo, fresh salsa, and Spanish cheese come together with this winning combination of sweet and savory in every bite!About a year ago, I attempted to make homemade pizza.  Now don’t get me wrong.  I didn’t even attempt to make the dough.  I bought it from a local pizzeria in town.  My pizza was an epic fail.  Sad, but true.  How do you mess up pizza when you don’t even make the dough.  Really, I don’t know.  But it happened.

I knew that someday, I would try again.

Mainly I wasn’t happy with the photos, but, like I said, it wasn’t perfectly round either.
