Ingredients
  • For the Taco Seasoning:
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • For the Pizzas:
  • 1/4 cup canola oil, plus more for brushing
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 16 -ounce tube pizza dough
  • All-purpose flour, for dusting
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar
  • 1 avocado
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon diced red onion
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup fresh salsa
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Directions
  • Make the taco seasoning: Mix all of the ingredients with 1 tablespoon each salt and black pepper in a bowl.

  • Prepare the pizza: Mix 2 tablespoons of the taco seasoning and the canola oil in a shallow bowl. Pound the chicken between 2 pieces of plastic wrap to 1/4 inch thick. Add the chicken to the bowl, turning to coat, and marinate 30 minutes.

  • Preheat a grill to medium high. Grill the chicken until cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Let cool, then cut into bite-size pieces.

  • Divide the dough into 3 pieces. Roll out each on a floured surface into an 8-inch round. Brush with canola oil, sprinkle with taco seasoning and grill until crisp, 3 to 5 minutes per side; remove from the grill.

  • Mix the cheeses in a bowl, then sprinkle on the crusts and top with the chicken. Return the pizzas to the grill, and cook until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the avocado, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, red onion, and salt and pepper to taste. Top the pizzas with the avocado mixture, salsa, sour cream and cilantro.
