Chicken Fajita Pizza
This gluten free and healthy chicken fajita pizza takes your classic pizza recipe and gives it with a southwestern kick.
Servings: 8 slices
For the blackened chicken
- 1 large chicken breast
- 1 egg
- splash of almond milk or whatever milk you have on hand
- 2 tbsps almond flour
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp chli powder
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp salt
For the fajita chicken
Heat a cast-iron pan over medium-high heat and give it a spray with avocado oil.
In a medium bowl add the egg, splash of almond milk and whisk together.
In another medium bowl mix together the almond flour, chili powder, garlic, cumin, salt, paprika, and oregano.
Take the chicken breast, dunk it into the egg mixture and then into the spice mixture. Coat it with the blackened fajita mix.
Add the chicken to the cast iron pan and sear on both sides for 3-4 minutes. Transfer to the oven and let bake for 25 minutes. Let it cool to touch and then slice.
For the fajita chicken pizza
Take your crust (pre-baked if needed) and add the pizza sauce. Sprinkle some fajita seasoning over the crust (this is optional, I used Flavor God's but you can sprinkle ¼ tsp each of chili, cumin, and garlic powder).
At this stage, I like to add a sprinkle (¼ cup) of cheese so the toppings have something to stick too.
Layer on the peppers, onions, chicken, and cheese. I like to add cheese in between each "layer" to act as glue. Top with the black beans.
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Slice up and enjoy.
To make this recipe quick and easy I used a pre packaged cauliflower crust and the nutritional information uses that crust. The crust I used was from Molinaro's Cauliflower Pizza Kit.
If you use a frozen or homemade crust that will affect the macronutrients and calorie count.
