pork and mango pizza... 1 hour and 45 minutes (including dough rising)

You'll have to forgive the terrible picture, we had this on a rainy overcast night with no good lighting to be found!

the goods:

pizza dough:
1 scant teaspoon active dry yeast
3/4 cup warm water
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons olive oil

1 cup marinara sauce
12 ounces fresh mozzarella, shredded
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced and sauteed until golden
1 cup leftover carnitas meat
1 mango, peeled, pitted, and cut into small chunks
1 jalapeno, ribs and seeds removed and diced small

Make pizza dough: Combine the yeast and warm water in a small bowl or glass measuring cup and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Add the flour to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Sprinkle in the salt. Turn the mixer on low, then slowly pour in the olive oil. Finally, pour in the yeast/water mixture. Stop mixing when everything comes together. Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to rise 1 hour.

Increase the oven to 500 degrees. Roll out the pizza dough into a rectangle. Drizzle a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil and transfer dough to sheet. Spread marinara sauce over dough and top with mozzarella, caramelized onion, and shredded meat. Bake the pizza for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly. Remove from oven and immediately top with jalapenos and mango.
