    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!!!
