This Mexican chicken pizza has always been a hit with my kids and it’s such a great way to sneak in extra vegetables. —Carrie Shaub, Mount Joy, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 1 package (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 8 ounces boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil, divided
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium green pepper, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup chunky salsa
  • 2 cups shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • Optional: Sour cream and additional salsa

Directions

  1. Unroll dough into a 15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray; flatten dough and build up edges slightly. Bake at 425°until edges are lightly browned, 8-10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet coated with cooking spray, cook chicken over medium heat in 1/2 teaspoon oil until no longer pink, 4-6 minutes; remove and keep warm.
  3. In the same pan, saute the onion, peppers, chili powder and cumin in remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil until crisp-tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in salsa and chicken.
  4. Sprinkle half of the cheese over prepared crust; top with chicken mixture and remaining cheese. Bake until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted, 8-10 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with sour cream and additional salsa if desired.
