I have always loved the flavor in Donato's Chicken Mariachi Pizza. That should come to no surprise to any of you that know my love affair with Mexican food. I knew as soon as I started this journey that it would be top on my list to create my own {clean} version of it. 

Chicken Mariachi Pizza

Sauce Ingredients:
  • 1 6oz can of {all natural, low sodium} Tomato Paste
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Coriander
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sea or Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano
1) Mix tomato paste with one tomato paste can full of water (or 1/2 cup if you like to measure), stir until well blended.
2) Add all other ingredients and stir.

NOTE: This sauce is enough to make approximately 3 Medium Pizzas. This is a MILD sauce. Feel free to add Crushed Red Pepper or Cayenne Pepper for heat.

  • 1/2 lb Chicken breast -Cooked (diced into small cubes)
  • {all natural} Smoked Provolone Cheese (shredded)
  • {all natural} Mild Cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • Roma Tomatoes (sliced)
  • {all natural} Black Olives (sliced)-best are at the olive bar
  • JalapeƱo Peppers (sliced and seeded) 
2) Top pizza dough with Mariachi Sauce
3) Add toppings to your liking and top with cheeses.
4) Bake on pizza stone at 450° for 10-15 minutes. (Adjust accordingly the first time you bake in your oven)

When {eating clean} try to avoid bags of processed shredded cheeses. It's always best to get blocks of fresh cheese and shred at home. (Read those LABELS) It's often hard to find good quality smoked cheeses that don't break the bank. If you find a smoked cheddar instead, use it and get regular provolone. Or simply try them non-smoked and see if you like it.
