Equipment

  • Pizza pan
  • Mixer + dough hook

Ingredients

The dough.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp yeast
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 cup warm water

Pizza toppings.

  • 1 cup shredded cooked chicken We like to use ready-to-eat rotisserie chicken from the supermarket.
  • 1/2 cup your favorite salsa Note that in this case, jarred salsa works better than homemade.
  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced Preferably with a mandolin.
  • 1 bell pepper, gutted and sliced into spears
  • 1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 TBSP fajita seasoning Preferably homemade.
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend or mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh parsley or cilantro, for garnish

Instructions

The dough.

  • Place the flour, yeast, salt, and sugar into a large mixing bowl; whisk to combine the ingredients.
  • Set and lock the mixing bowl to the mixer. Attach the dough hook and turn the mixer on low. Slowly add the warm water and let the dough mix for about a minute, or until a nice ball of dough has formed. (Note: You can knead this dough by hand on a lightly floured surface, it will just take a bit longer to form.)
  • Place the dough ball in a large, lightly oiled bowl. Cover it tightly with plastic wrap, and let it sit for an hour.

Chicken Fajita Pizza.

  • Preheat the oven to 450º F.
  • Place the chicken and vegetables into a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, add the seasoning, then toss to evenly coat the ingredients; set aside.
  • Lightly oil your pizza pan. Transfer the dough out onto it, and work the dough up to the edges of the pan until your pizza dough is fully formed.
  • Spoon the salsa over the center of the pizza and evenly spread it out, leaving about 1/2-1 inch of room for a crust to form. Evenly sprinkle the shredded cheese over the salsa, and finally, transfer the seasoned chicken and veggies to the pizza, spreading them out.
  • Bake the pizza for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden in color. Remove the pizza from the oven and let it sit for about 5 minutes before cutting into it. Garnish with fresh herbs, and enjoy!
