      Great pizza. I made my own cheese sauce by melting Mexican cheese and a can of Rotel, made my own thin crust pizza dough and used a leftover chicken breast. Turned out great.

      I made this pizza on Monday (along with enchiladas), and we loved it. The only thing I did differently from the recipe is that I only used 1/2 of a green bell pepper and 1/2 of a red. I used regular taco seasoning. My oven was is still not working, so we baked this on a pizza pan on the grill (indirect heat), and it turned out great! I plan to make this again, whether my oven works or not... the grill worked just fine and made it nice and crispy. Thank you for posting your recipe. (Made for PRMR)
