Chicken Fajita Pizza

Chicken Fajita Pizza by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

This week I’ve got a fun pizza idea that would be perfect for Friday night pizza or for game day. Don’t forget the Super Bowl is this Sunday. Even if you’re not into football, you’ve got to watch to see those amazing commercials. Last year my favorite was the Volkswagen “The Force” commercial. It was such a super cute commercial.

For this pizza, I just took the flavors of a fajita, and made them into pizza form. I used salsa as the pizza sauce, then added grilled chicken, bell peppers and onions with shredded Mexican cheeses. After baking, I garnished my pizza with some freshly chopped cilantro.

When I make homemade pizza crust, I like to brush the crust after it’s baked with butter and sometimes sprinkle it with garlic or Parmesan. It adds so much to the pizza. To make the crust of this pizza really stand out, I used a spicy chipotle lime butter made with just three ingredients – butter, chipotle powder and lime juice.
