Spice Up Your Dinner Tonight With This Easy To Make, Authentic Mexican Pizza

Have Taco Tuesdays and Spaghetti Sundays began to lose their appeal? Are you simply tired of eating the same things over and over again due to your tight schedule? If so, you should know that spicing up your weekday dinner menu can be much easier than you think. In fact, with this authentic Mexican pizza, you will be able to whip up an exotic and delicious dish for your family in less than an hour.

What You Will Need

  • Chipotle BBQ sauce (approximately 2 cups)
  • 1 lb of classic pizza dough
  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco
  • red onion, garlic, salt, and pepper (quantities will depend upon your personal taste)
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • flour (just a few pinches)
  • rolling pin
  • 17×12 inch rectangular baking pan
  • medium skillet

Step #1: Prep Your Toppings

Begin by dicing your red onions into small, manageable pieces. Next, in a medium skillet over medium heat, saute onions and garlic in two teaspoons of olive oil until caramelized. Add salt and pepper to taste and set aside to cool. In order to promote faster cooling, you may wish to remove the mixture from your skillet and place in a glass or metal bowl (avoid plastic as it may absorb the flavor of the garlic).

Step #2: Prep Your Crust

On a lightly floured surface, roll out your pizza dough until if forms a rectangle that is approximately 17×12 inches in size. Place the dough on an appropriately sized baking sheet and prick holes all over the dough using a fork. This will allow heat to be evenly dispersed throughout the dough during the cooking process.

Step #3: Assemble And Bake

Start the assembly process by spreading the chicken breast over your pizza dough as evenly as possible. Next, drizzle your BBQ sauce over the chicken evenly. Finally, top the pizza with your onion mixture and crumbled cheese.

Now, simply bake your pizza in a 400 degree oven for approximately 25 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

In Conclusion

Turning an ordinary dinner into something extraordinary does not need to be complicated, time consuming or expensive. So the next time you are thinking about running through the drive-thru on your way home from work or fixing a boring sandwich before vegging out in front of the TV, remember that you could be enjoying some of the best traditional Mexican food in your area right in your own home with very little effort.
