The Blue Jean Chef's Tex Mex Pizza recipe uses ingredients such as chicken breast, avocado, corn, salsa, cilantro, mozzarella cheese and pepper jack cheese as toppings. Because the recipe calls for pre-made dough, it is a relatively simple recipe, though one unique aspect is that it calls for the pizza to cook on a grill rather than in an oven. Other ingredients, including the corn and the chicken breast, cook on the grill as well, adding a smoky flavor to the dish.
Many of the Blue Jean Chef's recipes introduce basic cooking concepts such as pan sauces. The Chicken Breasts with Tomato Balsamic Sauce recipe includes a pan sauce. Laurence has an online video covering the process of making the sauce, a common feature for her recipes.Learn more about Cooking
