Fajita Pizza



Happy Leap year Everyone! I have always wondered about those leap year babies. What do they do? Do they celebrate their birthdays on the 28th of February every year? I guess that is what I would do because no one should go an entire year without a birthday celebration in their honor. Right? And so I digress, back to the za.

I love fajitas! I would probably say that is my go-to order at any Mexican restaurant. They come out piping hot, sizzling on the skillet and make such a spectacle that usually other restaurant goers will turn around to get a glimpse of whatever is causing such a scene. So as I sat at the grocery store last weekend, I thought to myself that I wanted to make a pizza and why not throw my favorite Mexican dish on top - fajitas. So here she is people, the fajita pizza!

You Will Need:
  • 2/3 cup red pepper, diced
  • 1/3 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1 ball pizza dough (white or wheat)
  • 1/3 cup yellow corn
  • 1 1/4 cups pizza sauce
  • 1/2 bag of mozzarella cheese (12 oz bag)
  • 1/3 diced cooked chicken
  • 1/4 cup black beans
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

Here We Go:
  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F
  • Roll out dough to desired thickness using your hands or a rolling pin if you have one
  • Rub pizza stone with olive oil and place dough on pizza stone or baking sheet
  • Top dough with pizza sauce, cheeses and vegetables
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes on top rack, or until golden brown

Makes 8 Slices
Happy Feasting!
