Pizza topped with chicken, bell peppers, onions and salsa. Another family favorite that has been adapted from a Pillsbury Bake-off recipe. Prep time does not include time to make dough.

This is a great pizza! I got the recipe from Pampered Chef and it became an instant favorite. I use the refrigerated crust and thin Boboli sometimes too.
Great Recipe! It is simple, easy to make, and really yummy. I have served it to company and they loved it. It looks a little more gourmet than your average pizza. I like it best with a Boboli thin crust, saves time too.
I personally liked this but my family did not. I used leftover diced chicken and pre-cut frozen onions & peppers. (time saver). The flavor was good. Simple to make.
