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 

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 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 cup fresh salsa

1/2 cup sour cream

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  1. Make the taco seasoning: Mix all of the ingredients with 1 tablespoon each salt and black pepper in a bowl. 
  2. 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. 
  3. 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. 
  4. 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. 
  5. 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.
