WEEK 11: Chicken Fajita Pizza

Oh yes, you read that correctly.  Never could I have imagined my beloved fajitas colliding with my sacred pizza.  But...then it happened, and what a glorious thing it was.  Am I sure I'm still talking about pizza?  Yes, I am!!

Try this with steak, just veggies, or a layer of beans and skip the meat.  Any way you shake it, it's a good thing.

Chicken Fajita Pizza



Use one third of pizza dough (enough for one medium pizza)


  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese - shredded
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese - shredded
  • 1 pastured chicken breast - cooked, sliced
  • ½ cup onion - chopped
  • ½ cup peppers - make them green, red, yellow, whatever you can get your hands on
  • cilantro for garnish

Preheat oven to 500°.  While the oven is heating shape your dough into the desired shape, adding as little flour as possible.  Poke several small holes in the crust with a fork to prevent bubbling.  Transfer pizza dough to whatever, pan, stone, etc you will be using for cooking.  Brush crust with a bit of extra-virgin olive oil, and cook without toppings for about 5 minutes.  Add cheese, chicken, onion, peppers, and cilantro.  Cook pizza for about 10 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.

You might want to serve with some jalapeno slices if you're into that kind of thing.  If not...more jalapenos for the rest of us!
