Fajita Pizza Recipe

Fajita Pizza
One of my favourite food is pizza. When I was little, growing up in an Asian household, anything that isn't rice or goes with rice is a treat. Ordering delivery pizza was back then, in my eyes a special occasion. 

Now, not so much. Delivery pizza nowadays is a sign that me or Jesse are either too lazy or too tired to make something for dinner. But nothing taste as good as homemade. I find that making pizza out of left overs is simple, delicious, & easy, having most of the ingredients I need already on hand.

We had fajitas the night before and I wanted to re-imagine the leftovers into another dish. What better way to do this than to make it into a pizza!

I don't really cook using exact measurements except when I'm baking.

This being said, I don't really have exact amounts of each ingredient for this recipe but it's pretty hard to screw it up. I suggest just eyeballing each ingredient until you think your pizza is to your liking. 

You'll need:
  • baking sheet or pan
  • pita bread
  • salsa
  • leftover grilled chicken &/or beef
  • leftover grilled veggies (optional)
  • chopped pickled jalapenos (optional)
  • shredded mozza & cheddar cheese 
  • whole sour cream (optional)
  • chopped cilantro (optional)

Pre-heat the oven to 400°F. Layer all ingredients in the order listed on the baking sheet, except the sour cream & cilantro. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until cheese is golden brown & melted. Cut into 4s. Spoon dollops of sour cream & sprinkle cilantro.  



  1. That's a great idea! We usually just cave and order in on those lazy nights too, but this works so well. Even on those nights where you don't have much time for dinner (like taking kids to soccer)
    Thanks for the idea!
