  • 1 tablespoon warm water
  • ¾ cup bottled medium-hot salsa
  • ¼ pound asadero cheese, crumbled
  • ¼ pound cotija cheese, finely chopped

  1. Cook the chorizo, crumbling it even more as you go, in a sauté pan until it has given off most of its fat.
  2. Drain fat from the pan.
  3. Transfer the chorizo to a plate.
  4. In that same skillet cook the eggs, scrambling them until almost cooked through. Keep them a bit on the wet side. Set aside.
  5. Spread the refried beans evenly over the pizza to 1-inch from the edge of the crust.
  6. Spread the salsa over the beans.
  7. Evenly spread the reserved chorizo over the salsa, followed by the reserved eggs, spreading the eggs as evenly as possible.
  8. In a small bowl, combine the three cheeses. Sprinkle the cheeses over the eggs.
  9. Bake the pizza until the three cheeses melt into the eggs and the crust is toasty brown.
  10. Sprinkle the cilantro over the top just before cutting and serving.
