Reviews for Salsa Chicken Fajita Pizza
"This was awesome. Me and my boyfriend loved it. Will definitely make again. I didn't have a soupy mess... I used 15 oz jar of salsa and let it sit in the strainer until I was ready to use it. Great recipe. Lots of flavor."
"I loved the flavor of this pizza, but the salsa as well as the chopped peppers caused a soupy mess of the crust. I like a nice, crisp crust on my pizza and it just wasn't possible with the combination of these toppings."
"Awesome! My daughter said good enough to serve in a restaurant."
"Loved the chicken! the lime flavor is awesome. I did add a Tbsp of taco seasoning a a few drops of mesquite liquid smoke. The only change I would make is to make my own crust with corn meal next time."
"I'll be honest: I didn't remember to marinate the chicken, but it was good even without that, and I'm sure will be better when I remember to marinate it! I added a little fresh cilantro and some fresh tomatoes and used pitas for fast mini pizzas. I didn't use red pepper because the store had it priced too high and I didn't drain the salsa. I cannot wait to make this again when my garden's producing, as I will make it with fresh salsa!"
"YES AND IT WORKS WONDERFUL"
"could you use the precooked grilled chicken breast strips found in the meat dept?"
"my chicken was frozen so I substituted Jimmy Dean sausage crumbles.It was so good I e-mailed my son to give him the recipe. The salsa really makes the difference. Can't wait to try it again."
