Day 266: Chicken Fajita Pizza

Last night my hubby wanted something new for dinner.  Something different, that we hadn't had in a while.  I laughed because we have something new and different every day!  Since we had soccer games I needed something quick and easy, so I came up with this pizza.

Chicken Fajita Pizza
12" dutch oven

1 pkg yeast
1 cup warm water
2 1/2 cups flour
4 Tbs. vegetable oil, divided
2 tsp. salt, divided
1 tsp. sugar
1 lb. chicken cut into strips
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 cups sliced green onions
2 cups sliced peppers (green, red, yellow, orange)
1 cup salsa
1 cup each shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese

Dissolve the yeast in water.  Add the flour, 2 Tbs. oil, 1 tsp. salt, and sugar.  Mix well.  Let rest 15 minutes.  While the dough is resting, heat the oil in a 12" dutch oven over a full spread of coals.  Add the chicken and cook about 5 minutes.  Add the peppers, onions, garlic powder and remaining salt and cook until peppers are tender and chicken is no longer pink.  Remove from the pot and wipe the pot clean with paper towels.  Press the pizza dough into the bottom of 2 greased 12" ovens.  Bake at 450° for 6-8 minutes.  Remove lids, spread toppings over crust and sprinkle with cheese.  Bake 14-18 minutes longer or until crust is golden and cheese is melted.  Serves 6-8.

The Finished Product

The Review

This was pretty good if I do say so myself.  It came together pretty quickly and my kids loved it.  My 14 year old son had 6 pieces and still wanted more.  It wasn't spicy at all so my little ones liked it too.  It would be an easy camping meal if you bought a roll of pizza dough, use pre-cooked chicken strips and frozen peppers.  That would be a snap to make.  We gave this a B.
