How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler to high. Place Hatch chile on a piece of heavy-duty foil. Broil 10 minutes or until blackened, turning occasionally. Wrap chile in foil; let stand 10 minutes. Peel chile; discard skin, seeds, and stem. Slice into thin strips.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 550°F with a large cast-iron pan inside; continue to heat pan an additional 10 minutes after oven has reached 550°F.

Step 3

Press dough with fingers into a 9-inch circle on a floured surface. Carefully remove pan from oven. Place dough circle in pan. Spread sauce on dough, leaving a 3/4-inch rim around outside. Sprinkle evenly with cheese. Top with sliced chile and Sweety Drop peppers. Place pan in oven; bake at 550°F for 7 minutes or until top is browned. Drizzle with crema. Cut into quarters.

Chef's Notes

Baking Steel


For the crispiest pizza crust, laciest fried eggs, and best-browned steaks you've ever made, you need the Baking Steel Skinny Griddle. Use the channeled side as a stovetop griddle for searing and sautéing whole meals at once. Preheat the steel, flat side up, in your oven, and it's like a turbocharged baking sheet, conducting heat 18 times better than ceramic pizza stones. $160, bakingsteel.com.
