    A fantastic chicken pizza starting bright Cajun flavours like paprika, chilli, garlic, coriander, lime and herbs. A snap to make using a premade pizza base.

    Altered ingredient amounts. My husband LOVES this. He got angry with me when I shared the leftovers with my sister for lunch! He thinks it's better with yellow tomatoes, but red tomatoes are fine. I followed the advice of others and cut the salt in half for the chicken rub. I also used a wholemeal pizza crust. Besides that, the recipe is perfect. If you like mushrooms, be sure to add those because it makes the pizza better. Thanks for this wonderful, healthy pizza recipe! I am adding a note in here about the sogginess another reviewer mentioned - I always squeeze my salsa through a cloth or paper towel before spreading on pizza. Otherwise, the excessive liquids leave the crust soggy and messy to eat! - 29 Sep 2008

    I too only used this for the Blackened Chicken part, was by far the best I've had (but be-warned it is abit spicy). Probally not for the younger croud but if you like full flavour and a bite back this stuff is great! - 29 Sep 2008
