From Taste of Home. A great pizza with a Mexican flair. I make my own crust, but if you use a commercially prepared crust, this could be quite a quick recipe to prepare!
- 1 (1/4 ounce) package active dry yeast
- 1 cup warm water (110 to 115 )
- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

- 2 cups onions, sliced
- 2 cups green peppers, sliced
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 cup salsa
- 2 cups monterey jack cheese or 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
- In a bowl, dissolve yeast in water.
