chicken burrito pizza

I saw this recipe in Shape Magazine and my mouth started watering. We tried it recently for dinner and loved it! I love a spin on classic pizza and this is the perfect combination of flavors. It is quick to make too, especially if you use some store-bought ingredients and prepare some steps ahead of time.

Chicken Burrito Pizza

2 T. salsa (more if desired)
Pizza Crust (use your favorite recipe, or store-bought)
1 cup low fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 chicken breast, grilled and diced
4 T. black beans
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

For the Pico De Gallo
1 large tomato, diced
1 small green chili, diced
1 T. chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 red onion, diced

For the Guacamole
1 large avocado
1 T. chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 red onion, diced
juice of 1 lime
salt and pepper to taste

*note: to save on time you can buy prepared pico de gallo and guacamole at the store and use that instead.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spread salsa over the prepared dough. Sprinkle with cheese. Top with the chicken, black beans and onions. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes, or until the edges of the crust are golden brown. Meanwhile, combine tomato, chili, cilantro and onion in small bowl. Season with salt. Set aside. Halve an avocado, remove the pit, and scoop out the flesh into small bowl. Using a fork, mash the avocado. Mix in cilantro, onion, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.

Slice pizza and top each slice with a spoonful of guacamole and pico de gallo. Enjoy!!

we love making our own pizzas at home, the kds adorn rolling and trying to spin our dough. We have some favorites with unusual toppings, on the top of that list is a white pizza with tortellinis and cheese, with pesto rather than sauce. I'm going to have to try this one too, but I'll adapt it for us vegetarians first ;)
