Southwest Chicken Fajita Pizza Recipe

Pizza takes a southwest turn in this version. I made this recipe on the first date—an evening of cooking at my apartment—with my husband, Gary.—Tricia Longo, Spencer, Massachusetts
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 1/2 cup julienned green pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend


  • 1. Unroll crust into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan; flatten dough and build up edges slightly. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.

"This pizza was okay, but it just didn't do it for me. It was a nice change of pace, but I just felt it was average."

"I was wondering if my husband would like this and we both really liked it. I used orange peppers instead of green and a Boboli pre-made crust and it turned out great."

"Great pizza and so easy to make. It would be simple to double it and make for a party. Try not to load it up too much because the crust cannot take it. Keep it simple but make an extra one!"

"Yummy! We used a Boboli whole wheat crust instead of the tube. Full of flavor and definitely a unique change of pace.
