Cheesy Chicken Fajita Pizza

“This always seems best late at night or when we have friends over," says Darlene Brenden of Salem, Oregon. "Ready to bake pizza crusts are such a time saver and makes this pizza taste as good as any pizzeria.”

    This pizza was just average, written as is. Flavor was a bit bland. I have a similar recipe that uses a different crust but adds cumin and salt. That small addition makes a huge difference in flavor. This is a decent base recipe but needs adjustments.

    Very good pizza. I used rotisserie chicken and a combination of taco sauce and mild picante sauce. It could use more green pepper.

    Made this tonight and it was pretty good. I added some black beans and corn to it, next time I'll add some chiles.
