Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil divided
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken thighs chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1/2 medium green pepper chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 medium green onions, thinly sliced white and light green parts only
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 packs KBosh Pizza Crusts
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar or Mexican cheese
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon of the avocado oil until shimmering but not smoking. Add the chicken and saute until mostly cooked through, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with the taco seasoning.

  2. Stir in the pepper and onions and continue to cook until the veggies are tender, another 3 to 5 minutes. 

  3. Transfer the chicken mixture to a bowl and wipe out the pan with a paper towel. Add another 1/2 tablespoons of the oil and reduce the heat to medium low. 

  4. Add one pizza crust to the pan and sprinkle with 1/2 cup of shredded cheese. Take half of the chicken filling and spread evenly over the cheese. Sprinkle with another 1/4 cup of cheese and lay a second pizza crust on top.

  5. Cover the pan and cook until the cheese is melted and the bottom is browned, 2 to 4 minutes. Carefully flip over and cook another 2 minutes. Remove and let cook a few minutes before cutting into slices

  6. Repeat with the remaining crusts, cheese, and filling.
