Chicken Mole Enchilada Pizza

Spicy and DELICIOUS with a nice thin crust. You can use a pre-made mole sauce if you like.


2 cups corn masa harnia (Bob's Red Mill is Gluten and GMO free!)
1 cup plus 2 TB water
1/2 tsp salt

Sauce:(this made more than enough for the pizza, but it freezes beautifully for a quick pull out later!)
2 dried ancho chiles
1 cup hot water
1 TB olive oil
1 smallish onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 heaping TB smooth peanut butter
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp oregano
3 TB unsweetened cocoa powder
pinch of cinnamon
salt and pepper to taste


Amounts to taste, dont overload!!
Chicken Breast, cooked and shredded
Queso Añjeo*

1/4 cup Sour Cream
1-2 TB Milk
Green Onions
Fresh tomatoes

*If you cant find Queso Añjeo, fresh grated Parmesan(not the canned powder) or even dry feta may be a good substitute

First place the chiles in the hot water for 30 minutes to soften, drain and discard water

Preheat oven to 400
Combine all ingredients and mix well.

Gather it into a ball and knead a few times until smooth. On a lightly greased pizza pan place your dough ball

GENTLY press it out to the edges of the pan, you can use a rolling pin gently if you like but I find hands, while slower, worked better. If you get a hole, just pinch a bit from a thicker part and fill it in.

Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, remove and allow to cool


Slice the chiles(remove seeds if you want less of a kick)

In a small pan over medium heat , heat the olive oil. Add onion and garlic and cook until tender.

Transfer the onions and chiles to a blender or food processor and add all remaining ingredients except the cocoa. Blend/process until smooth.

Return it to the sauce pan, stir in cocoa, cover and simmer 10 minutes until nicely thickened. Adjust salt/pepper to taste.

Spread desired amount of sauce over the tortilla crust, top with shredded chicken and Queso...

Place in 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes until hot bubbly.

Mix sour cream with milk to a drizzle consistency.

Top hot pizza with fresh chopped tomatoes, green onions and cilantro. Drizzle sour cream over the top.

Slice and serve!
