Chicken Pizza Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Chicken Pizza With Yellow Tomato Salsa

Homemade pizza is a great dish to add to your weeknight repertoire. Especially when using a store bought dough, it can come together in under 45 minutes. If you enjoy creative toppings, you'll love this hearty chicken pie. Actually, it's really more of a flatbread, since there is no sauce. This recipe makes perfect use of the season's ripe tomatoes. The toppings are simple: spicy blackened chicken, chunky tomato salsa, and tons of pepper jack cheese. It's an unusual, yet scrumptious pizza that's packed with flavor and heat. This blackened chicken pizza would taste even more delicious when cooked on the grill, so if it's hot in your neck of the woods, take it outside! Get the recipe now.
