There is an excess of food in my fridge. Anyone want me to cook for them? I went grocery shopping and got pulled in with sales and a good deal on chicken. Thought at the time, that I might, just might, find enough meal ideas to use it all. Let’s just say, I’m still working on it.
However, I did find a way to use some of that chicken.. and the dough I bought… and all the veggies…
Fresh Mexican Pizza
What you need:
Taco/Mexican Seasoning Blend
Mexican blend cheese
Garlic powder, ground pepper, cayenne for salsa
Preheat oven to 350. Once heated, roll out pizza dough on baking sheet. I put down flour so it doesn’t stick to the pan. Before putting it in the oven, spread some olive oil and garlic powder on top. Just enough olive oil to coat the dough. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes so the dough is partially cooked through. The longer you cook it, the crunchier your crust will be.
While that’s going, cook up the chicken breast with the taco seasoning. I like to have it sliced into thin strips.
Make up some fresh salsa, see my recipe here. I think I’ve found about a thousand ways to use fresh salsa in my recipes. When the dough is ready, top it with fresh salsa, chicken strips and chicken. Cook for another 15 minutes or until the cheese is all cooked through.
There’s something about fresh pizza that I love! Out of the box is good for late nights, delivery is better, but if you have the time, nothing really beats a fresh pizza (trading the sauce for tomatoes that is.)
