Chicken Fajita Pizza

So you may be wondering what exactly I did with my first attempt at homemade pizza dough.  I made Chicken Fajita Pizza!  The whole process for this pizza was a little different than past pizzas, starting with the fact that I used a fresh homemade dough ball.  Stud ranks this one up there with BBQ Chicken Pizza, it was a very good first attempt.  And the kicker - I served it with a garlic sour cream sauce.  YUM.

Chicken Fajita Pizza
2 chicken breasts
1 large green bell pepper
1 medium onion
1/2 pint cherry tomatoes
2 c. Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 c. salsa
2 T. vegetable oil
2 T. cumin
1 t. cayenne pepper
1/2 t. chili powder
1/2 t. garlic powder

Roll out the dough and place on a oiled cookie sheet.  Put in a 500 degree oven for about five minutes, just until the crust starts to turn golden.  Slice the chicken breasts into thin strips and place in a skillet with the vegetable oil.  While the chicken starts to cook, chop up the bell pepper and the onion.  In future attempts at this pizza, I would dice the pepper (and maybe add a red or yellow) and slice the onions.  I think the slices of pepper were too much and they didn't cook quite enough.  Add the pepper, cherry tomatoes and onions to the skillet with the chicken after about three minutes.  Once the onion starts to wilt, add the cumin, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and garlic powder.  These are just an idea of the spices to use.  And Stud and I like spicy foods, so add and remove as needed to suit your taste.

Once the chicken is cooked, spread the salsa over the crust.  Then layer on the cheese and the chicken/pepper/tomato/onion mixture.  Put back into the oven for an addition 10 minutes until everything is looking melty and delicious.

Garlic Sour Cream Dipping Sauce
1 c. sour cream
3 cloves garlic
1/4 t. garlic powder
2 T. milk

Finely dice the garlic and add all ingredients to a bowl and combine.  The sauce is a nice compliment to the spicy pizza.  And yum yum yum.

And side note - today Stud hits the quarter century mark!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY.  Good cookings (attempts) on the menu for tonight!
