Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with parchment and the pizza crust.

  • Rinse and roughly chop the Swiss chard and add the leaves and ribs to a pot with 1 tablespoon of water over medium heat. Season with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and cook until the chard is tender, about 3 minutes. Squeeze excess water from the leaves and stems and transfer to a bowl and set aside.

  • Combine the tomatoes, olive oil, chili flakes, barbecue sauce and the remaining salt in a small saucepot over low to medium heat and bring to a simmer, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, rinse and drain the hominy in a colander over the sink.

  • Spread a generous layer of the sauce over the prepared pizza crust and top with hominy, Swiss chard and both cheeses. Season the pizza with salt and pepper and bake for 15-20 minutes until cheese has melted and the sauce bubbles off the sides a bit. Slice and serve.
