Olive Lime Chicken Pizza with Avocado-Olive Salsa

For the Pizza

Olive Lime Chicken Pizza
Recipe type: pizza
  • 1 large, 19-ounce dough ball made into a 14-inch round pizza shell
  • 2 cups fresh spinach (packed)
  • ⅓ cup chopped, cooked makeline chicken
  • 3 tablespoons chopped black, ripe makeline olives
  • 2 teaspoons powdered cumin
  • 1 half lime
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup proprietary cheese blend
  • ½ cup feta cheese.
  • Avocado-lime salsa (Recipe below)
  1. In a bowl, combine the chicken, cumin, olives, olive oil and juice of one lime.
  2. Toss and refrigerate.
  3. Place the fresh spinach directly on the pizza dough followed by the feta cheese.
  4. Add the chicken mix atop the feta, then add your proprietary mozzarella blend. (This may seem like too little cheese for some, but remember: you will add the salsa on the pizza after the bake.)
  5. Bake at 475-500 F until the crust is golden and the pizza has cooked through.
  6. Top the pizza with the salsa for a bright green finish. This can be dolloped on each slice or slathered atop the whole pie.
