Pizza takes a southwest turn in this version. I made this recipe on the first date—an evening of cooking at my apartment—with my husband, Gary.—Tricia Longo, Spencer, Massachusetts

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 1/2 cup julienned green pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend

Directions

  1. Unroll crust into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan; flatten dough and build up edges slightly. Bake at 400° until lightly browned, 8-10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute chicken in oil until lightly browned. Add the onion, green pepper, garlic, chili powder, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until vegetables are tender and chicken is no longer pink.
  3. Spread salsa over crust. Top with 1 cup cheese, chicken mixture and remaining cheese. Bake at 400° until cheese is bubbly and golden brown, 10-15 minutes.
