Mexican Chicken Pizza With Cornmeal Crust

Total Time

I found this recipe on the Muir Glen website. I added the carmelized onions and it really brings out the taste of the fire roasted tomatoes. We loved it. I plan on making different pizzas with the cornmeal crust. A taco pizza would be great. A great way to use up leftover chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil (or butter) in large skillet. Add onions and cook over medium low heat, stirring frequently until onions are golden brown and soft. Stir in 1/2 teaspoons sugar and cook 1-2 minutes more. Set aside.
  2. Heat oven to 450. In medium bowl, stir together 3/4 cup of the flour, the sugar, yeast and salt. Stir in warm water and oil. Beat with electric mixer on low 30 seconds. Beat on high about 1 minute. Stir in 1/3 cup cornmeal and remaining 3/4 cup flour to make a soft dough. On lightly floured surface, knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.
  3. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray; sprinkle with additional cornmeal. Press dough into 14x10-inch rectangle on cookie sheet; prick with fork. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges just begin to brown. Spread the onions on crust, then sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese. Top with chicken, tomatoes and bell pepper. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until cheese is melted and edges are golden brown. Sprinkle with cilantro. Add green onion and a dollop of sour cream, if desired.

I had changed this recipe to suite my needs, but the end results were very good. I feel if I made it as follows it would have turned out the same. I made the crust in a bread machine on pizza cycle, removed & let it raise for about 1/2 hour on a oiled cookie sheet. I did carmalize the onions and yellow bells, then added pre-cooked chicken to heat. I baked the crust for about 10 minutes on 400º. I mixed refried beans with taco sauce to make it easy to spread for the main sauce. Then added the chicken-vegie mix, some mexican cheese mix & baked. I then added a bit of sour cream before serving. Yum! I don't like cilantro, so I left it out. I will be doing this again, may even follow the directions. Thanks for posting carolinajen4 !
