Pizza Al Pastor

You've had tacos al pastor. Delicious. Now take that concept and apply it to pizza.

I wish I had a video of my reaction when I first saw this pizza. Surprise, joy, excitement, all wrapped up together and covered in melted cheese. It was 11PM approaching midnight in Mexico City, I was at my friend's house when his cousins came over. We had already eaten tacos, but they brought pizza. 

"¿Es pizza de que?"
"Al pastor."
"¡¿Pizza AL PASTOR?! No manches."

Even though I was already stuffed, it looked so good I had to eat a piece. It was life changing. When I got back to the States I wanted to recreate it at home. After discussing it with a few friends in la CDMX we settled on the following recipe. The combination of the Oaxaca, Manchego, and Mozzarella cheeses are unstoppable. The sweet and spicy bite of the candied jalapeños and pineapple walk hand in hand with the salty goodness of the chorizo and tender pork al pastor, all brightened up by the fresh cilantro and lime. 

You can marinade and grill your own pork, or find pre-marinaded carne al pastor at most Mexican meat markets.
