HOW DO I MAKE FAJITA PIZZA?
Start by rolling out your dough and placing it on the pizza pan. Evenly spread your salsa verde and mozzarella sauce over the pizza
SAUTE YOUR VEGGIES
Slice your veggies into strips, and chop your garlic. In a skillet add your olive oil and veggies. While sautéing them in the oil sprinkle on the seasonings. Saute them until they are crisp tender. They will continue to cook while in the oven so you don't need to have them 100% tender.
PROTIP: To get nice black char marks on the veggies dont constantly stir them. Allow them to fry on the same side for a few minutes then toss and let sit again.
ADD TO THE TOP OF YOUR PIZZA
When done sautéing to desired texture add the veggies to the top of the pizza.
Place the pizza in the oven at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes.
WHAT ELSE CAN I SERVE WITH THE FAJITA PIZZA?
You dont have to stop just with the beautiful rainbow fajita veggies. You can also top the pizza with
- fresh cilantro
- fresh limes
- this amazing creamy jalapeno dressing
- pickled jalapenos
WHAT DO I DO WITH LEFTOVER FAJITA PIZZA?
Place any leftover pizza in an air tight container in the fridge. it will keep for 4-7 days in there.
WHAT IS THE BEST METHOD TO REHEAT PIZZA?
HANDS DOWN the best way to reheat pizza is in the air fryer. It keeps the crust crispy while reheating the cheese to a nice bubbly melt perfection. If you do not have a air fryer or even a convention oven you can reheat pizza in the microwave or try this method too:
In a heated fry pan add your slice of pizza, add a small amount of water and place lid on top. The water will evaporate quickly and heat the top layers of the cheese and the dry bottom of the pan will toast the crust.

Oh this sounds so good! I'm always looking for different pizza ideas.
I love to freeze!
I freeze everything! When fruits are in season and on sale, I'll buy them in bulk. I cut them up into pieces, place them on a parchment paper-lined tray, and freeze them. After they're frozen, I'll dump them all into a ziploc and that way I can just grab the exact amount I need any time (for a smoothie or for compote or anything else).
Leftover spinach or kale or other leafy greens, I'll blend with a bit of water and then pour into ice cube trays and freeze. Pop them into a smoothie any time for extra veggies!

First of all, cilantro lime Alfredo sauce? Are you KIDDING me?! Can I just drink it?
And as far as food storage, we try to buy items as they go on sale to build up a supply. I've heard good things about Thrive though and I'd love to try it!
