4-5 tbsp classic pizza sauce

Prepare your pizza dough ahead of time. Our guide to making the perfect Classic Pizza Dough covers everything you need to know.
For the sauce for this pizza, we recommend preparing our easy Classic Pizza Sauce. With a hint of garlic, salt and basil, it's the ideal pizza sauce that will help to bring out the flavors in the other ingredients used here.
Place the juice and zest of your limes in a small bowl or tupperware dish, then add your pineapple chunks. Seal with an airtight lid and let infuse, ideally overnight in the refrigerator.
Using a small amount of flour, dust your Ooni pizza peel. Stretch the pizza dough ball out and lay it out on your pizza peel. With a large spoon or ladle, spread an even layer of sauce over the base of your pizza. Top with your mozzarella chunks, then add your chorizo, and finally your lime-infused pineapple chunks!
Slide the pizza off the peel and into your Ooni pizza oven. Cook for 1-2 minutes, making sure to turn the pizza regularly for an even cook. Once cooked, remove the pizza and top with a garnish of fresh cilantro to finish.
Serve right away for an explosion of citrusy-sweet, smoky, herby flavors!
