Chicken Fajita Pita Pizza

Chicken Fajita Pita Pizza

Soft, whole wheat pitas topped with melted cheese and sheet-pan fajita chicken and vegetables make for healthy and easy weeknight pizzas that the whole family will love!

I received free samples of Toufayan Pita mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Toufayan Bakeries and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

I’m always on the lookout for ways to make weeknight dinners easier without compromising flavor, so I was especially excited when Recipe Redux members were invited to participate in Toufayan Bakeries’ recipe challenge.

Stack of pitas

Toufayan Bakeries is a family-owned baker in the U.S. that turns out more than 100 delicious products across the nation – in fact it’s the largest pita company in the U.S.! Among these products are 8 varieties of pita: White, Multi Grain, Sprouted Grain, Low Carb, Oat Bran, Savory Garlic, Sweet Onion, and Whole Wheat. Regardless of what flavor you choose, all products are made using old-world recipes with only top quality, wholesome ingredients and are naturally cholesterol and trans fat-free.

Chicken fajita pita pizzas

For these fajita pita pizzas, I used the Low Carb pitas, which are made from fiber-rich whole wheat flour and contain just 16 grams of carbohydrate per pita with 7 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein. These pitas combined with lean chicken and shredded cheese pack these pizzas with a serious protein punch, helping you to stay full for hours afterwards.

Sheet pan chicken fajitas

To make these pizzas we first need to cook our fajita chicken and vegetables. One of my favorite dinner short-cuts is to make sheet pan meals. Simple place chicken strips and any vegetables you like on a sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with cumin and chili powder then cook everything at once for 20-25 minutes. For those of you who like to meal prep, you can make the chicken and vegetables ahead of time then just assemble the pita pizzas throughout the week.

Sliced chicken fajita pita pizza

Keeping with the Mexican-inspired cuisine, these pita pizzas are first topped with salsa, which provide an extra dose of veggies. Next, sprinkle over shredded Mexican cheese then load each pita up with the cooked fajita chicken and vegetables.

Initially I thought a serving would be 2 pita pizzas, but I was completely satisfied and full after just one. It was a bonus as I then had leftover fajita pita pizza slices in the fridge for a healthy snack later in the day 😉

So here’s a toast to pita pizzas, my new favorite weeknight dinner!

    Ummm, were you on Top Chef? Or are those Top Chef oven mitts??!

    • The Healthy Toast AvatarThe Healthy Toast4 years ago

      That’d be so cool if I had been, but sadly no. My mother-in-law bought us them a few years ago (they’re awesome because they stick to the fridge).

    • The Healthy Toast AvatarThe Healthy Toast4 years ago

      Thanks Sara! I know it’s not a traditional fajita veggie, but my stomach can’t handle onions and our neighborhood Mexican restaurant once served broccoli in their fajitas and I just fell in love with the addition.
