Grilled Chicken Taco Pizzas

Here is a great recipe for kids and adults that you can throw together on the grill while everyone enjoys playing in the yard.  Grilled Chicken Taco Pizza is featured the Food Network Magazine September issue and may also be found on their site.

When you read the recipe it will seem like there are too many steps, however it really is simple.  Grilled pizza dough topped with cheese, seasoned grilled chicken, salsa, and a delicious lime, chili avocado mixture.  What makes it appear to be more involved is that the original recipe uses a homemade taco seasoning and store bought pizza dough.  I skipped both of those steps and used Trader Joe's Taco seasoning and Flat Out Flat breads.  The pizza dough is probably way better than flat breads, but I was on a time crunch and just used what was available.  I also added a mock sour cream that consists of Greek yogurt, lime zest and a little lime juice.

And, if you are going out to do your big Sunday shopping tomorrow head to Sunset Foods where Miller Amish boneless, skinless chicken breasts are on sale for $2.99/lb.  Miller is one of my favorite locally sold poultry brands.  They advertise a hormone, antibiotic, and steroid free product that reminds me of the chicken found in grocery stores of old.  Smaller breasts, great flavor and cooks up perfectly.  While you are shopping you can also stock up on Sargento cheeses(you will need it for the pizzas!) and Didier Farm corn, a few other items also currently on sale at Sunset.
