Fajita Pizza with Chicken Recipe

Fajita Pizza with Chicken Recipe

My family loves pizza and chicken, so I knew when I found this recipe that it would be a hit. We make it at least once a month.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch strips
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup sliced green pepper
  • 1 cup thinly sliced onion
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Directions

  • 1. Unroll the pizza crust onto a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan; flatten dough and build up edges slightly. Prick dough several times with a fork. Bake at 425° for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute chicken in oil for 5 minutes or until no longer pink. Add the green pepper, onion, chili powder, garlic, cumin and salt; cook 2-3 minutes longer or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Spoon over crust; top with salsa and cheese.
  • 3. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. Yield: 8-10 slices.
