Chicken Fajita Pizza







2 packages uncooked pizza dough (to make two pizzas) or homemade pizza dough
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 boneless chicken breasts, cut into thin
    strips
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1 red bell pepper, cut into strips

1 garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoons chili powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup mild salsa or medium salsa if you prefer a bit more spicy
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Preheat oven to 450o.

Divide the dough in half, and roll out to form two pizza crusts.  Place on pizza stones, and bake for 8 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove from oven. 

In a medium size skillet over medium-high heat, sauté chicken, half at a time, in oil until lightly browned.  Return all chicken to pan.  Add onion, red bell pepper, garlic, chili powder, and salt.   Sauté until vegetables are tender.  Turn off heat.  Add salsa and mix through.  Divide and spoon onto both pizza crusts.  Sprinkle 1 cup of cheese over each pizza.  Bake for 10 minutes or until toppings are lightly browned.
