2 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1 (1/4 oz) pkg active dry yeast
1 Tbsp olive oil
3/4 c warm water (110)

Chicken Fajita Topping:
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c snipped cilantro
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp pepper
12 oz boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
1 green pepper cut in quarters
1 medium onion cut in quarters
8 oz shredded colby/jack or Mexican cheese
Sour Cream

For Marinade - in a large Ziploc bag, combine oil, cilantro, lemon juice, chili powder, cumin, and pepper. Add chicken to marinade, turning to coat. Cover and chill about 1 hour.

For Crust - Proof yeast in warm water. In separate bowl, combine flour, salt, sugar, and oil. Make well in center and add yeast/water mixture. mix thoroughly until elastic consistency. Allow to rise about 1 1/2 hours.

Grilling - Place onion and green pepper on skewers. Grill along with chicken until tender. Drain chicken, reserving marinade. Grill chicken on medium heat about 15 minutes, turning once and brushing with marinade. Cut onion and green pepper into strips and chicken into bite-sized strips.

Assembling Pizza - Break crust dough into 4 balls. Roll one ball on a floured surface. Grill one side of dough about 2 minutes on high heat. Remove from grill, flipping crust over. Top grilled side with salsa, chicken, green pepper, onion, and cheese. Return to grill and heat until toppings are hot and cheese melts (about 5 minutes). Repeat for other crusts. Serve with sour cream if desired.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I often use 2 pkg Betty Crocker pizza crust mix and make according to package directions if I don't feel like making dough from scratch - just as good. Also, we use other toppings like pepperoni, ham, pineapple, mushrooms, or other typical pizza toppings as well.
