Here is another example of a recipe sent it from a Molina Salsa fan. This recipe was submitted by Jacqui Kelley Renager (of Cooking With Jacqui). She used Molina Salsa to make a spicy mexican pizza. 

In addition the recipe below, we also filmed Jacqui making this dish! See the full video at the bottom of this page. 

Dough ingredients:

  • 2 cups warm water
  • 2 ¼ tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 6 cups all purpose flour

Chicken ingredients:

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups Molina Salsa

Pizza Ingredients

  • 1 can refried beans
  • 2 cups Molina Salsa Shredded Chicken
  • 1 cup Molina Salsa
  • 1 cup sweet corn
  • 2 jalapeños sliced
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1 mango peeled and diced
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes sliced

Preparation / Cooking

Making the Pizza Dough:

In the bowl of a stand mixer with the dough hook attached, add the water and yeast. Stir on low to combine. Add salt and three cups flour. Let mix on medium low for three minutes. Add the remaining flour and mix on medium for about ten minutes. Coat a large bowl with nonstick spray and put the dough in the bowl.  Spray the top of the dough to prevent sticking. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for one hour. Punch dough down and divide into six dough balls. This will make six 10 inch pizzas. 

Preparing the chicken (also great filling for burritos, quesadillas and enchiladas)

  • Put the chicken in a crock pot and cover with Molina Salsa.
  • Cook on low for six hours.
  • Remove chicken from crock pot and shred. 

Preparing the pizza: 

  • With a pizza stone in your oven, preheat the oven for one hour at 500-550 degrees. 
  • Once the oven has heated for an hour, roll out one of the rounds of dough into whatever shape you choose.You must roll it thin. 
  • Top with refried beans, meat, and 1 cup of Molina Salsa.
  • Transfer your pizza to the oven and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and add corn, jalapeños, and cheese.
  • Return to oven and cook an additional 2-3 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and melted.
  • Removed from oven and top with shredded lettuce, avocado, mango, and sliced cherry tomatoes.
