Chicken Enchilada Pizza. Dancing Around To The Phenomenal Handclap Band.

Poor Dad.

Some of that ice cream and a Chicken Enchilada Pizza should get him feeling better.

I’ve made Mexican inspired pizzas before, like these two here.


So is this Chicken Enchilada Pizza. It has got all of the flavors of a pan of enchiladas baked atop a pizza crust, instead of rolled in a tortilla.

I used an old stand-by favorite pizza dough recipe which is very quick and easy to make. It is a thicker crust, which I like now and again. The Chicken Enchilada Pizza would be very good on top of a thin crust, too.

Chicken Enchilada Pizza


1 Tbs olive oil
1 small white onion, peeled and diced
1 poblano pepper, diced
1 (4 oz) can diced green chiles
1 large unbaked pizza crust, homemade (recipe follows) or storebought
2 cups red enchilada sauce
2 cups shredded or diced cooked chicken
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
handful of fresh cilantro, stems removed


1. Preheat oven to 425℉.

2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add onions and poblano, and sauté for 5 minutes or until onions are cooked and translucent. Add diced green chiles and cook for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat.

3. In a bowl, toss the chicken with a few spoonfuls of the enchilada sauce.

4. Spread 1 cup of enchilada sauce evenly on the pizza crust, leaving a 1-inch border. Layer the onion/poblano/chile mixture evenly on top of the sauce. Add the sauced chicken and sprinkle the top with cheese.

5. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cheese is melted and the crust begins to turn golden brown. Remove and sprinkle with fresh cilantro. Slice and serve immediately.
