Hey guys!! So every Friday night is pizza night in our house. The boys look forward to it and it is so much fun! We make our pizzas and then snuggle in to watch a movie. My boys love just a cheese or pepperoni pizza, but my husband and I like to create some delicious combinations for our pizza.

We both love fajitas and knew it would be amazing in pizza form, and we were right!

Now each pizza night starts out the same with all the ingredients laid out so we can all work together to get the pizza in the oven.

We make our crust from scratch because it’s delicious, and it’s also a lot easier than you think.

The key ingredient to making the best pizza crust is Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast.

I always have this yeast on hand for baking because nothing tastes better than homemade, and Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast is what you need to make the best pizza crust, bread, cinnamon rolls, you name it.

This pizza dough comes together in minutes. You just need flour, sugar, salt, oil, water and, of course, Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast.

The most important thing to remember when working with yeast in a recipe like this is to make sure the water is heated between 120˚F-130˚F. Always use a thermometer to check temperature. Too cold and the yeast won’t bloom and rise, too hot and you risk killing the yeast. So just make sure to double check that you have the temperature right and your recipes will come out perfect! Also, the yeast shouldn’t be expired. That is often the reason of ‘not rising’.

So once you have everything mixed together, you knead it for about 4 minutes. My kids love this step, and it gives me a chance to clean up any stray flour lol.

After it’s kneaded, it does need to rest for 10 minutes.

Then you just shape it and top it.

We topped this Steak Fajita Pizza with salsa as the sauce, Colby Jack cheese, green pepper and red onion, grilled steak pieces (a great way to use up leftovers), and corn and black beans.

After it baked, we topped it with chipotle sauce, and this pizza was amazing! All the flavors worked wonderfully together and the crust was perfectly baked.

Can I use a different protein?

Of course!! Feel free to use fajita spiced chicken, leftover taco meat, shrimp or you can even leave out the meat and add some more veggies.

Can I use a different salsa like a verde?

That would be amazing! Use your favorite salsa, something you like to dip your chips in. You could even go a little crazy and use a queso, yum!

Other toppers?

You can go crazy with the toppings. It is all up to what your family likes. Some things you could use top the pizza are:

  1. Sour cream
  2. Guacamole
  3. Green onions
  4. Pico de gallo
  5. Avocado
  6. Shredded lettuce
  7. Fresh tomatoes
  8. Crispy tortilla chips
  9. Cilantro

Ingredients

  • 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup very warm water (120° to 130°F)*
  • 3 tablespoons Canola oil
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded colby jack cheese
  • half a small green pepper sliced
  • half a small red onion sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups grilled fajita steak strips (precooked)
  • 1/4 cup black beans rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 corn rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 prepared chipotle sauce
  • melted garlic butter for brushing crust (optional)

Instructions

    Preheat oven to 425°F.

    Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. 

    Add very warm water and oil; mix until well blended, about 1 minute. 

    Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.  Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky.

    Knead** on a floured surface, adding additional flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes. 

    Let dough rest at this point for 10 minutes.

    Pat dough with floured hands to fill greased pizza pan or baking sheet.  OR roll dough on a floured counter to 12-inch circle; place in greased pizza pan or baking sheet. 

    Form a rim by pinching the edge of the dough.

    Spread with salsa. 

    Top with cheese, steak, peppers and onions, corn and black beans.

    Bake on lowest oven rack for 12 to 15 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and crust is browned.

    Drizzle with chipotle sauce before serving.
