Southwest Chicken Fajita Pizza

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

    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.~ Theresa
