Our Spin on Chicken Taco Pizza

Last night, my bf and I were craving something a little different than our Sunday night Soup tradition. After bouncing several ideas, we decided to create our own version of a Taco Pizza. If you have a Casey's General Store in your area - you've probably experienced one before. :) We borrowed ideas from this recipe at Jo Cooks here

Chicken Taco Pizza

You'll Need:

  • Pizza Dough (we picked up the premade kind)
  • 1 cup refried beans 
  • 1 pound of chicken breasts, cut into strips 
  • Shredded cheese
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 package of chicken taco seasoning

    Toppings (go wild!)
  • Lettuce 
  • Tomatoes
  • Green peppers
  • Salsa
  • Cilantro
  • Plain Greek Yogurt (substitute for sour cream)

Make it!

  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. 
  • Begin assembling your pizza from the bottom up. We covered the pizza with refried beans and salsa while the chicken cooked in the taco seasoning. 
  • In the mean time, cook your chicken in a skillet with the taco seasoning. We followed the directions on the packet of seasons.
  • Add the cooked chicken and shredded cheese to your pizza. 
  • Pop it in the oven for 8-10 minutes.
  • Polish off the pizza with toppings of your choice. We went with: lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, green peppers, cilantro, and yogurt. 
  • Slice your pizza up and enjoy!

I don't mean to toot our horns or anything... but this was a delicious dish. I'm looking forward to the leftovers tonight for dinner. We watched ours with an episode of Walking Dead and the NFL playoffs. Are you a fan of Walking Dead too? We are catching up on season three and things are getting emotional. 

Happy Monday!
