Take-out Tuesday, Fajita Pizza

This recipe is actually  a great leftover makeover.  I can’t take any credit for this, it was all my son’s idea.  After last week’s Fiesta party, we had a ton of fajita steak and chicken left over. The caterer we used was incredible and added 10 extra servings for free just because they wanted to be sure we had plenty!! {Coquina Superior, Birmingham, Al} I was just going to warm it  and serve it the usual way with tortillas and the trimmings, but what was I thinking?  That was way too boring apparently and HHjr showed up with a pizza crust and an idea…a fajita pizza~

Using a pre-made pizza crust {Momma Mia’s} he made a sauce with sour cream and salsa


Chopped cherry tomatoes and onion


topped the sauce


Next he added shredded lettuce, which I thought was weird, but I didn’t want to hamper his creativity…


Then came and mixture of the fajita sliced chicken and steak, onions and peppers.  The meat had a very flavorful marinade~


Then he topped it with a drizzle of hot sauce, because he likes things spicy


Next came grated cheese


and off to the grill it went


In no time at all, the pizza was ready


So next time you order fajitas in a restaurant, make sure you get the leftovers to go!

You could really load this up with lots more veggies…maybe enchilada sauce instead of sour cream and salsa, oh and I wish he had added black or refried beans…and wow, can you see the endless possibilities here?!!
