Chicken Fajita Pizza

I know I have been slacking on this. In fact, I guiltily admit that I have mostly been living off of Subway. But now my school district is on spring break for two weeks so I thought this would be a good time to catch up on my cooking!

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and it sounded and looked scrumptious. I like pizza, but my husband LOVES pizza. If he could eat one food for the rest of his life, it would probably be pizza. He knows that pizza isn’t my favorite choice for dinner, so when we do eat it, it is usually to curb his craving. However, this recipe looked so good that I had to try it. This pizza was DELICIOUS! Probably one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had. Salsa in place of marinara sauce?? Brilliant! I also love that this pizza is not greasy but rather fresh and full of flavor! This is one recipe that I suggest you try STAT!!
