  2. Heat a large skillet over high heat. Pour oil into hot skillet, and cook chicken in oil for 2 to 3 minutes, or until fully cooked.
  3. Combine tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, garlic, cilantro, lime zest, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread over pizza crust, then arrange chicken over tomato mixture. Top with cheese.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until cheese melts.

Excellent gourmet tasting pizza!! Kids loved it, although they thought it was a little spicy. A definite keeper!

This pizza was incredible, the chicken was great. I added crumbled turkey bacon as well. The only problem I had was the crust came out kind of soggy on the bottom. Be sure to drain extra tomato ...

I LOVE this pizza!! It's delicious yet healthy! I too use whole wheat pizza crust, and use olive oil to marinate the chicken, and 2% cheese, or whatever I have on hand. I have also used red t...
