This is a recipe I’ve had for a long time and have used often.  It’s relatively quick to put together, and uses some ready-made items to save time.  It sure comes in handy on those evenings when you want some real food but don’t have much real time!  Tonight was such a night, but I was able to have this on the table in about 45 minutes.  I doubled the recipe for my crew, and not a drop was left!

Ingredients:

1 pkg. fresh chicken breast strips

olive oil

2 teaspoons chili powder

1/2-1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 onion, sliced

1 green, red, yellow, or orange bell pepper, sliced into strips (or a combination of colors)

1 – 10 oz. tube refrigerated pizza dough

1/2 cup salsa

2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Directions:

Unroll pizza dough and pat into a greased 10 x 15 inch baking dish (for a thinner crust) or a 9 x 13 baking dish for a thicker crust.

Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 8 minutes, til dough is set and begins to brown slightly around the edges.

Meanwhile, place olive oil in a skillet and saute the chicken strips over medium high heat until done.

While chicken cooks, slice up the onion and bell pepper.

Mix together the chili powder, salt, and garlic powder in a small dish.

When chicken is done,  sprinkle the chili powder mixture over the chicken in the skillet.

    Fun fusion food idea. I suppose many dishes can be turned into a pizza right?
