Chorizo Empanadas

  • Total Time: 33 minutes


Perfect for lunch, dinner or even a mid-day snack – these delicious empanadas are filled with flavorful, spicy chorizo, seasoned Yukon potatoes and green olives. All perfectly packaged in a golden-brown crust and impossible to resist!



12 oz chorizo

5 Petite Yukon Potatoes

6 oz. Green Olives

Pizza dough (preferably homemade)



1 Tsp Chipotle Chili Powder

1 Tbsp Onion Powder

1 Tbsp Paprika

Olive Oil




Pre-heat Versa 16 Pizza Oven on Medium


Use any pizza dough recipe and mix in chili powder, onion powder, and paprika. Separate into 6 equally sized balls and put in sealed/covered containers.

Let dough rise for 2-4 hours at room temperature until dough is doubled in size.

Cut the potatoes into small bites, about 1/2″ cubes.

Slice Olives if not already sliced.

Add cubed potatoes with a drizzle of olive oil to a bowl and add in salt and pepper to taste. Mix until evenly coated then fry in a non-stick skillet or on a griddle.

Assemble empanadas by putting chorizo, potatoes, and sliced olives (cilantro is optional here) in dough and sealing the edge with a fork.

Cook empanadas on medium for about 2- 3 minutes depending on size. They will turn a golden brown when they are ready to be pulled out. Once out lightly brush with olive oil and sprinkle with cilantro.
