Chicken Fajita Pizza



“Everyone is guilty at one time or another of throwing out questions that beg to be ignored, but mothers seem to have a market on the supply.
"Do you want a spanking, or do you want to go to bed?"
"Don't you want to save some of the pizza for your brother?"
"Wasn't there any change?"”

~ Erma Bombeck quotes
(U.S. humorist, 1927-1996)

Since we're big fans of both pizza and chicken fajitas, this was a winning combination for us! The kids aren't crazy about salsa, so rather than putting it directly on the pizza, I served it on the side. I also added a bit of sour cream on the side, too! Delicious!


Chicken Fajita Pizza


Chicken Fajita Pizza


1 (10 ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch strips
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup sliced green bell pepper
1 cup thinly sliced onion
1 packet fajita seasonings
1/2 cup salsa
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Unroll the pizza crust onto a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan that has been coated with cooking spray; pat dough into pan, slightly building up edges. Prick dough several times with a fork. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

While crust is baking, sauté chicken in oil for 5 minutes. Add the green pepper, onion, and fajita seasonings; cook until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 3 - 5 minutes. Spoon chicken mixture over crust; top with salsa and cheese. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
