Can I Make "Chicken Salsa Verde Pizza"? (/ How to Make a Turtle Pizza)
Updated: Aug 26
I saw this Chicken Salsa Verde Pizza on Twitter from 24bite / @kidswanttocook and I wouldn't have thought to mashup Mexican food with pizza, so I decided to make one inspired by it! :)
I also decided to make it shaped like a turtle for Turtle Day. Haha! :)
I was just making a small kind of appetizer / snack portion for myself.
What I used:
- Pillsbury pizza dough
- Stonewall Kitchen Salsa Verde
- Daisy Sour Cream
- Cream Cheese
- Garlic powder
- Shredded cheddar
- Optional for turtle head, legs, and tail: green gel food coloring
To make the turtle:
I shaped the body with some dough. Then I took some more dough and shaped a head, 4 same size smaller pieces for the legs and then a tinier piece for the tail.
For fun, I added green gel food coloring to the pizza dough for the head, legs and tail.
I placed them next to each other, but then I baked them separately. I suppose I could have tried to bake them all pressed together as one piece.
I baked the dough for 5-7 min. at 400 degrees.
While it was in the oven, I prepared the topping. I mixed some cream cheese garlic powder, salsa verde, chicken and garlic powder in a bowl. Then I microwaved it for ~60 seconds, so it could get soft.
I took out the pizza dough and spread the chicken mixture on the body and then I topped it with some shredded cheddar. I baked it for another 5-7 minutes until the cheese was nice and melty and everything was warm.
We are good at this! Very tasty flavor combo and unexpected pizza! It's another idea for what to do with taco flavors / another idea for pizza. :)
And the turtle pizza is cute too!
Give it a try! We are good at this!
