Chicken Fajita Pizza

First of all, let me just tell you I am extremely happy, I have a super long 5 day weekend. Life is great, so Happy Easter my friends.

Now that that’s out of the way I can tell you about today’s recipe, because I’m very happy to share this with you. You know how much I love chicken fajitas and I love pizza, who doesn’t love pizza, so why not put the two together.

So I did!

And you know what? OMG! It is the best pizza I ever had. The pictures probably don’t do it justice, because we were so hungry so we were rushing, we wanted to eat the pizza while it was hot. So you’ll have to take my word on this, there’s nothing you will not love about this pizza. It’s cheesy, it’s spicy, it’s out of this world.

    Hi, Miss Jo. Do you mean I will just use 2 cups flour instead of 4 cups. I am exciting to make this tomorrow. I hope you will answer me. Thanks and I’ll be waiting. By the way, have a nice day!

      Hi there,
      Normally I make the entire pizza dough with 4 cups of flour, which makes 2 large pizzas or 3 medium ones. So for this you’d use half the dough and freeze the other half, it freezes really well, and then when you want to use it, just take it out a few hours before so that it thaws out. :)
