A great new twist on pesto with this southwest style pizza!

Bake Time: 25 min
Servings: 8
Skills: Intermediate


  1. 10 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
    1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 tablespoon taco seasoning
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 1/2 cups grated colby-Jack cheese
    1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
    2 tablespoons chopped green onion

    Cilantro Pesto:
    2 cups cilantro leaves
    1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    3 tablespoons pine nuts or walnuts
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    salt and pepper to taste


Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Combine rolls together and roll into a 13-inch circle. Place on a sprayed 12-inch pizza pan. Poke several times with a fork to prevent bubbles from forming.

Combine cilantro pesto ingredients in a small food processor bowl and process until almost smooth.

Spread evenly over cooled crust.

In a bowl, combine chicken and taco seasoning and mix well. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until cooked through. Place chicken evenly over pesto. Top with cheese, tomatoes and green onion.

Bake at 350°F 10-15 minutes.
