Bacon Ahogadas Sauce

Bacon Ahogadas Sauce
Recipe type: sauce
  • 3½ cups of your proprietary pizza sauce
  • 3 ounces red onion
  • 1 ounce roasted garlic
  • 2½ tablespoons ground cumin
  • 3 tablespoons oil (canola or EVOO)
  • 5 ounces of precooked, shaved bacon bits for the pizzeria
  • 2 tablespoons chopped, pickled jalapeños (add more to taste for heat index)
  1. In a bowl, toss the onion, oil, bacon, jalapeño and cumin with two tablespoons water.
  2. Place on a pizza pan (pizza oven cooking) or in a sauté pan (for the stovetop).
  3. Run through a conveyor or put in a deck oven at 475 F for six to eight minutes until the onions are wilted.
  4. Make sure the bacon does not burn and toss the ingredients as much as possible to integrate flavors. (Or in a sauté pan cook on medium high until flavor are integrated also.)
  5. Remove to cool.
  6. When cool, add the pizza sauce and the onion/bacon mixture and pulse on high with a stick or stand blender.
  7. This should yield 4 cups of sauce.
  8. You may also add same amounts of mayonnaise and sour cream for a bodacious dipping sauce.
  9. Chef's Note: Try this on a pizza with cheddar or Manchego, black beans, green peppers and chicken.
