Chicken Fajita Pizza blends the best of two cuisines, Mexican and Italian! You don’t have to feel guilty about this pizza loaded with veggies.

Chicken Fajita Pizza. Yes, it has real pizza crust and cheese, but tons of veggies! It’s like skinny Mexico on a pizza. You can make this fajita pizza the simple way with just peppers, onions, and chicken which is pretty tasty in and of itself… BUT… I think you’d like it much better loaded up with all sorts of healthy goodies.

Loaded Chicken Fajita Pizza

Fajita Pizza Ingredients

There are a couple of components to this loaded chicken fajita pizza. The dough, the sauce, the toppings that are baked, and the cold toppings. Here’s everything you’ll need:

  • Pizza Dough – feel free to use my pizza dough recipe or use store-bought. Just know that my homemade recipe tastes better and isn’t as hard to make as you think it is.
  • Salsa and Mozzarella Cheese – this is the sauce and cheese to this pizza. Once again, homemade or store-bought salsa, the choice is yours.
  • Chicken Breast, Onion, Bell Peppers, Grill Seasoning, and Cumin – this is what makes our fajita mix that is baked on top of the pizza.
  • Lettuce, Tomato, Avocado, Cilantro, and Sour Cream – the combination of hot cheesy pizza with cold crunchy toppings makes my tastebuds go a little cray-cray. Especially if a creamy avocado piece is involved. Holy amazeballs Batman.

Need more Mexican flavor in your life? I got you covered: Easy Chicken Fajitas (Oven & Stovetop recipes), Vegetarian Fajitas (Gluten-Free), Taco Lettuce Wraps, and Baja Fish Tacos.

How to Make Chicken Fajita Pizza

Two options, bake or grill your Chicken Fajita Pizza. I’ll outline how to bake it down below and here is my how-to on grilling pizza (it’s delicious, trust me).

  1. Preheat your oven and spread out your pizza dough on a baking sheet with either a Silpat or parchment paper lining it. Line with salsa and mozzarella cheese.
  2. While the oven is preheating prepare your fajita mix by cooking the chicken along with the veggies and seasonings. Spread the fajita mix on top of the pizza and bake until the crust is golden brown.
  3. While the pizza is baking, prepare the cold ingredients by washing and cutting them. Once the pizza is done, assemble the cold ingredients on top, cut, and serve!

    Hooray on running again! It becomes such a pain to run from square 1. I’m currently training for a 10K and I haven’t run in months so I’m dealing with the soreness too! And yes, please sign me up for that batmobile, and this pizza. I need dinner #2 right now!

  2. Leah | So, How's It Taste?

    I started back running recently too and it’s pitiful. I can barely run as far as I used to. It’ll come back though! This pizza looks so good. I’m sold with the huge slices of avocado!

    Yea, I pretty much stopped running the second I found out I was pregnant 🙂 Good for you for getting back to it! I kinda can’t wait. 😉

    I want this pizza NOW! It looks amazing Lauren!

  4. Dana

    Go mama!! I find it hard to muster up the strength to go to the gym certain days and I’m not even a mama yet! This pizza looks fab!!

  5. Lori @ RecipeGirl

    Good for you! Get out there and run. It’ll get easier again, and you’ll feel so good doing it!

    I love your pizza flavors here. Would be a big hit in my house!

  6. Stephanie @ Macaroni and Cheesecake

    Looks wonderful and I love that you loaded it up with toppings! And great job getting back in the swing of exercise! You can do it!:) I’m finding it harder and harder to keep up with my exercise during this pregnancy but I’m trying;)

    I always wondered if you should bake the pizza crust a little before adding the toppings. I find that my dough stays kind of raw and then it turns me off from making pizza at home for a while.

    […] (which I did not make), cookie dough brownies, caramelized onion, blue cheese and arugula pizza and loaded fajita pizza (minus the chicken), both on homemade dough. Far more food than four girls needed, but that means I […]
