Tex Mex Chicken Bacon Pizza

I got such a good response from the Catalina Chicken recipe I shared here that I thought I would share another family favorite. I think I found it in Southern Living.

Here's what you need:

1 can of pizza crust or two bags of pizza crust mix (I get these because they are cheaper and I can always have them in the pantry.)
1/2 t ground cumin (I've left this out before or used a little bit of taco or fajita seasoning.)
1 cup black bean and corn salsa (I've used reg. salsa before, too. I mustsay that the bean and corn is better, though.)
2 cups shredded cheddar or taco blend cheese
1 cup cooked diced chicken
4 slices of cooked bacon broken into pieces
1 ripe avocado sliced
lime or lemon
sour cream and any other toppings you like

Roll out your dough then spread with salsa.

Then, add cheese, chicken, bacon.

Cook according to your dough directions. Usually about 15 minutes at 400-425 degrees.

Top with your favorite toppings. I use avocado, sour cream and usually cilantro, but I forgot to get that at the store, so only avocado and sour cream today!

We tried the Catalina Chicken the other day and we loved it, especially Brandon! Probably because it's like Chinese and I'm not normally a chinese person so he doesn't get to go much. This looks wonderful too. I'm going to have to try it!

It does have an Asian taste! I don't care much for Chinese food either...unless it's PF Chang's or I cook it! Hope you like the pizza!

Mary Elizabeth made me laugh because she said I am not normally a chinese person, i thought, she doesn't look chinese at all :) and then i realized what she meant!!! i am not a fan of chinese food in american either...but i bet if you came to china you might like it :)
