  1. This pizza was okay but I had a few issues with the recipe. It calls for two yellow pear tomatoes but the only yellow pear tomatoes I'm familiar with are about the size of cherry tomatoes - so two would definitely not be enough for this recipe. I used two yellow Heirloom. In my opinion - Read more ...
  2. I LOVE this pizza!! It's delicious yet healthy! I too use whole wheat pizza crust and use olive oil to marinate the chicken and 2% cheese or whatever I have on hand. I have also used red tomatoes yellow and Roma tomatoes. They all work. I have also put spinach on the bottom before too. - Read more ...
  3. Fabulous. I par-baked a pizza crust for about 5-7 minutes to avoid a soggy crust-used a Trader Joe's pizza dough purchased in the refrigerator section. The chicken is fabulous with the spice combination. Because I was at a friend's house using a dull knife to chop the salsa ingredients I eventually used a food processor - Read more ...
  4. My husband LOVES this. He got ill with me when I shared the leftovers with my sister for lunch! He thinks it's better with yellow tomatoes but red tomatoes are fine. I followed the advice of others and cut the salt in half for the chicken rub. I also used a whole wheat pizza crust. - Read more ...
  5. This pizza was incredible the chicken was great. I added crumbled turkey bacon as well. The only problem I had was the crust came out kind of soggy on the bottom. Be sure to drain extra tomato juice before spreading salsa.
  6. The pizza was very good but I believe that the oregano was too strong in the chicken's seasoning. Next time I make it I will cut it down if not omit it completely.
  7. Freakin' amazing. The chicken is excellent by itself but what really steals the show is the sauce. It's almost like having your chicken and cheese on top of a delicious bed of fresh salsa.
  8. I too only used this for the Blackened Chicken part was by far the best I've had (but be-warned it is abit spicy). Probally not for the younger croud but if you like full flavor and a bite back this stuff is great!
  9. Awesome recipe! Made it twice this week. Used whole wheat crust and tasted delish!!!
  10. Excellent gourmet tasting pizza!! Kids loved it although they thought it was a little spicy. A definite keeper!
