To make your own Chili Cheese Pizza, follow these simple steps:
1 lb pizza dough (homemade or store-bought)
1 ½ cups of chili (homemade or store-bought)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 small onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 jalapeño, sliced (optional for extra spice)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
Salt and pepper, to tast
Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C). If using a pizza stone, place it in the oven while preheating. If using a baking sheet, lightly grease it with olive oil.
Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface to your desired thickness. Transfer the dough to a sheet of parchment paper or the prepared baking sheet.
In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Brush the oil mixture onto the pizza dough, ensuring even coverage.
Spread the chili evenly over the dough, leaving a ½-inch border around the edges for the crust.
Sprinkle the shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheeses over the chili, followed by the chopped onion, green bell pepper, and jalapeño slices, if desired.
Transfer the pizza to the preheated oven, using a pizza peel if using a pizza stone. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly and melted.
Remove the pizza from the oven, let it cool for a few minutes, and then slice and serve.
