My husband LOVES this. He got ill with me when I shared the leftovers with my sister for lunch! He thinks it's better with yellow tomatoes but red tomatoes are fine. I followed the advice of others and cut the salt in half for the chicken rub. I also used a whole wheat pizza crust. Besides that the recipe is perfect. If you like mushrooms be sure to add those because it makes the pizza better. Thanks for this wonderful healthy pizza recipe! I am adding a note in here about the sogginess another reviewer mentioned - I always squeeze my salsa through a cloth or paper towel before spreading on pizza. Otherwise the excessive liquids leave the crust soggy and messy to eat! Read More

This pizza was okay but I had a few issues with the recipe. It calls for two yellow pear tomatoes but the only yellow pear tomatoes I'm familiar with are about the size of cherry tomatoes - so two would definitely not be enough for this recipe. I used two yellow Heirloom. In my opinion the seasoning can be reduced by half. My chicken was liberally covered and I only used half the seasoning. I like moderatly spicy foods but this was borderline too spicy for my tastes AND I only used half the cayenne called for and did not use the jalapenos! If I were to make it again I would incorporate all of the above changes and I would use a different cheese in lieu of the Pepper Jack. Thanks for sharing this recipe Sarah Stephan! Read More

Freakin' amazing. The chicken is excellent by itself but what really steals the show is the sauce. It's almost like having your chicken and cheese on top of a delicious bed of fresh salsa. Read More

Fabulous. I par-baked a pizza crust for about 5-7 minutes to avoid a soggy crust-used a Trader Joe's pizza dough purchased in the refrigerator section. The chicken is fabulous with the spice combination. Because I was at a friend's house using a dull knife to chop the salsa ingredients I eventually used a food processor to aid in the process. I just spread the salsa on the crust and then topped with the chicken and the recommended cheese. I took the pizza to my gourmet group and it was consumed in a very short period of time. I did not think that there was a whole lot of heat produced by the ingredients-just a very flavorful combination. The crust was not soggy and I did not drain off any liquid from the salsa like some people did. All I can say is "YUMMY"! Read More

The pizza was very good but I believe that the oregano was too strong in the chicken's seasoning. Next time I make it I will cut it down if not omit it completely. Read More

This pizza was incredible the chicken was great. I added crumbled turkey bacon as well. The only problem I had was the crust came out kind of soggy on the bottom. Be sure to drain extra tomato juice before spreading salsa. Read More

I LOVE this pizza!! It's delicious yet healthy! I too use whole wheat pizza crust and use olive oil to marinate the chicken and 2% cheese or whatever I have on hand. I have also used red tomatoes yellow and Roma tomatoes. They all work. I have also put spinach on the bottom before too. This is just one of those recipes that you can tweak to your liking. Thank you Sarah! Read More
