Chipotle’s pizza toppings and sauces are some of the most beloved ingredients in the world.
The chain serves its pizzas in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Chipotle offers a wide range of toppings, including pepperoni, mozzarella, and sausage.
Here are some things to consider when making your Chipotle pizza.
Chipotles Pizza Sauce The Chipotle sauce comes in two basic types: “pizza sauce” and “pizzas.”
Both are a blend of vinegar, garlic, chili powder, paprika, and sea salt.
“Pizza sauce,” which is made from ingredients like pepperoni and mozzaroni, comes in a bottle or a bag.
“Chile powder” comes in the form of a paste or powder.
Both of these sauces are generally used to make pizzas.
“The flavors of this sauce are really good and they are made from vinegar, chili, papyrus, and salt,” says Amy Johnson, a certified nutritionist and the co-author of The Ultimate Guide to Healthy Eating.
“If you want to get the flavor from chili, you’re going to need more pepper and less paprika.”
