This recipe puts a delicious twist on the classic Argentinian choripan by using pizza dough as the base!

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes



  • 1 Whole Pizza Dough, quartered
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • ½ cup Cornmeal
  • Olive Oil, as needed


  • 3-4 Chorizo Sausage
  • 9-10 Mozzarella Slices
  • Mayonnaise (optional)
  • Sliced Tomatoes (optional)
  • Sliced Jalapenos (optional)


  • ¾ cup Parsley, chopped
  • ¼ cup Red Wine Vinegar
  • 4-6 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp Red Chili Flakes
  • Olive Oil, to desired consistency
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Preheat the Oven: Set your pizza oven to preheat to 450-500°F (232-260°C).

  2. Make the Chimichurri:

    • In a bowl, combine all chimichurri ingredients: chopped parsley, red wine vinegar, minced garlic cloves, red chili flakes, olive oil, and salt to taste. Mix well and set aside for the flavors to meld.
  3. Cook the Sausage:

    • Add a cast iron skillet to the preheating oven.
    • Once hot, add your chorizo sausage to the skillet and cook for 10-12 minutes, or until fully cooked through.
    • Remove the cooked sausage from the skillet and keep it warm.

  1. Prepare the Dough Rounds:

    • Divide your pizza dough into four equal pieces.
    • On a well-floured surface, stretch each dough piece into an 8-inch round.
  2. Assemble and Bake:

    • Drizzle olive oil over each flattened dough round.
    • Top the dough with mozzarella cheese.
    • Gently fold the dough in half, creating a semi-circle shape. Drizzle with additional olive oil if desired.
    • Place the prepared dough rounds on a baking sheet or pizza stone and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until the dough is golden brown and cooked through.

  1. Serve and Enjoy!

    • Remove the baked choripan pizzas from the oven.
    • Slice up your cooked sausage and place it inside the "pocket" of each pizza.
    • Drizzle generously with chimichurri sauce.
    • Add your desired toppings like sliced jalapenos, tomatoes, and mayonnaise (optional).
    • Serve immediately and enjoy your delicious Argentinian-inspired pizzas!
