This pizza is packed with flavorful seasonings, but it's the cilantro that gives it the fresh burst of flavor. If you like Southwestern foods and pizza, too, this one is for you! Rebecca Clark - Warrior, AL

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon fajita seasoning mix
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, julienned
  • 1 medium green pepper, julienned
  • 1 medium onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro

Directions

Unroll crust into a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray; flatten dough and build up edges slightly. Bake at 425° for 7-10 minutes or until golden brown.
Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, saute chicken in 2 teaspoons oil until no longer pink. Sprinkle with seasoning mix; cook 30 seconds longer. Remove and keep warm.
In the same skillet, saute the peppers and onion in remaining oil for 3 minutes. Add garlic; cook 2 minutes longer or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove from the heat; stir in the salsa, pepper and reserved chicken.

"This was pretty good but bland until I added more fajita seasoning to the chicken and veggies. Also need salt. My husband loved it..me not so much, but it's worth a second try."

"Different, very good!! So easy to make using refrigerator crust. What a great spin on traditional pizza (and light to boot!!). Lots of meat and veggies and the cilantro really gives it that southwesten boost. It should be renamed Loaded chicken Fajita Pizza!!!"
