Directions Step-By-Step

1
MEAT TOPPING: brown ground beef with granulated garlic, onion and cumin.
2
SAUCE: Remove seeds and stems from dried peppers. Tear into pcs and place in a pot of water. Bring to boil, reduce to simmer. Simmer with lid on for about 15 min. Turn off heat and allow to sit for another 30 min or so.
3
After sitting for a while, drain water. Place in food processor with 1 c of beef stock, 2 tsp of granulated garlic, granulated onion, cumin and 1/2 tsp of salt and puree. Run through a strainer to remove pulp.
4
In a skillet place 1/3 c of canola oil, mix in 1/3 c of masa, stir to combine and heat for about 3-4 min.
5
Add 2 tsp of tomato paste, stir together well, add pepper puree and 1 c of beef stock, stirring as it heats. You want to let it thicken up so leave on simmer till good and thick.
6
DOUGH: Place liquids in bread machine pan, then dry ingredients, set to DOUGH ONLY cycle. When dough has risen, kneaded, rested and risen (about 1 1/2 hr)divide into three balls. Roll out on a cornmeal very thin.
7
PIZZA: Spoon on enchilada sauce, sprinkle with cheese (I used a combo of Asadero and Cheddar)then ground beef, then onions. You can add more sauce or cheese as you layer it if desired.
8
Bake on lowest rack at 425° for approx 20 min. Time will vary from oven to oven and depending on what rack you use, I used my second from bottom rack. This crust is very thin so it doesn't take very long to cook.
