Chicken Fajita Pizza

This was soooo yummy but a little too spices for the girls. Little Princess Guinea Pig gave it a try and ate most of hers but Princess Guinea Pig only took a couple bites before she said "no, thank you" and said it was too hot. I think if I used a very mild salsa (instead of medium) in the future they may enjoy it more?
This recipe came with instructions on how to make your own pizza crust but I was being lazy and bought pre-made pizza crust. ;) I'll include the homemade pizza crust with the recipe and put a * on where I started.

1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (110º to 115º)
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
2 teaspoons salt, divided
1 teaspoon sugar

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 cups sliced onions
2 cups sliced green peppers
2 teaspoons chili powder (I only used 1 teaspoon)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup salsa
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack or mozzarella cheese

In a bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add flour, 2 tablespoons oil, 1 teaspoon salt and sugar. Beat vigorously by hand 20 strokes. Cover and let rest about 15 minutes. Divide dough in half; press each portion into a greased 12-in. pizza pan. Prick dough several times with a fork. Bake at 425º for 6-8 minutes. * In a skillet, saute chicken in remaining oil until juices run clear. Add onions, peppers, chili powder, garlic powder and remaining salt; cook until vegetables are tender. Spoon over crusts; top with salsa and cheese. Bake for 14-18 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is melted. Yield: 2 pizzas Enjoy!!
