Let’s Talk Ingredients!
I used a shredded mozzarella for making this recipe, but ideally the best cheese to use is a fresh mozzarella that’s been torn into smaller pieces. I don’t recommend anything but mozzarella for this recipe, other cheeses don’t blend with the tuna taste as well.
I recommend both albacore and skipjack for this recipe. Other tuna varieties may work well with this pizza, but haven’t been experimented with.
I used a pre-made sourdough crust for this recipe. This cuts down on time needed to create the pizza. However, if you don’t have a crust already made, you can make your own with these recipes I’ve already made here. I made these recipes to be as easy, simple, and fast as possible.
For the jalapenos, you have a variety of options available to you. Can can either dice them yourself, drain the jalapenos from a can, or rehydrate freeze dried jalapenos. For me, I let the freeze dried jalapenos sit in water for ten minutes before draining the water. However, when it comes to incorporating anything flavorful in a recipe, You are going to want it to be as fresh as possible for the best results.
