Blending up sweet mango with spicy chipotle chiles creates a surprising pizza sauce with a deliciously slow burn. Look for prepared pizza dough in the refrigerator case or substitute frozen bread dough for a chewy crust. Handle the Heat created this recipe from an ingredient list submitted by Pamela S., who won a grand prize in the Just BARE® Chicken +5 Ingredient Challenge.


  1. Place a large pizza stone on the bottom rack of oven. Heat oven to 450°F. Place mango, chiles, and sauce in a blender container. Process until smooth. Pour into a small saucepan; bring to a simmer over low heat.

  2. Meanwhile, place bacon in large skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until crisp; drain on paper towel, reserving 1 tablespoon of fat in skillet.

  3. Season chicken with salt and pepper; sauté in skillet over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, or until no longer pink in center (165°F on instant read thermometer). Cool; chop into bite-size pieces.

  4. Stretch and roll dough out on a flour-dusted work surface into a 12-inch circle (if the dough bounces back, allow it to rest for 10 minutes, then continue). Move dough to a flour- or cornmeal-dusted flat baking sheet or pizza peel.

  5. Spread warm mango sauce over dough; sprinkle with cheese, then the chicken and bacon pieces. Slide pizza onto hot pizza stone; bake 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling. Remove from oven; cut into wedges.
