Cuban Chicken Pizza*

So here I was thinking that women were the only ones that faked it. No, not like that. But in our appearance. I fake it when I wear  my spank. Ladies of the tiny titty committee fake it with those chicken cutlet things. We all wear heels to fake that we are taller and make our calves look amazing. And most of us dye or highlight our hair. But men? I thought men just put it all out there. I mean yea, they might suck it in at the beach…but it’s not like they do the crazy insane things that women do. WRONG. Boy was I wrong. Over the past few days two things have been brought to my attention. One, Shock Jock Flirt Brief. Two, SlimTs. I mean really? Really? I guess we all fake it…

And while we are all busy faking it, why not fake your pizza? Jorge and I love pizza. However, considering all the carbs and calories, it is usually something we have to keep as a special treat. But, now with this “pizza” we don’t have to! It is on a tortilla and has no actual sauce! It is delicious and awesome with a few good squeezes of lime on top!



Cuban Chicken Pizza

Yield: 4 servings


4 Ole Xtreme Wellness High Fiber Low Carb Tortillas
1 (11 oz) can whole kernel corn, drained
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 cups diced roasted chicken breast
1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3/4 cup Jalapeno Jack Cheese, shredded
4 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 lime, quartered


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place flour tortillas on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove from oven, stack and press down to flatten. Set aside.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, coat pan with olive oil. Add corn to pan, and cook 1 minute or until lightly charred. Add chicken, black beans, and garlic, cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Remove from heat, stir in lime juice.

Place tortillas on baking sheet. Spoon 3/4 cup bean mixture onto each tortilla, top each with 3 tablespoons cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Sprinkle each pizza with 1 tablespoon cilantro and serve with a lime wedge.

    I was just heading over to Google to search out some interesting pizza ideas and voila, you’ve saved me time. This looks delicious, love the combination of flavors. And by the way, I’ve worn 3 inch heels for so long I don’t know how to walk in flats. :-)

    Agreed! I think everyone ‘fakes’ it to some extent – that shirt jock brief is hilarious :). The cuban chicken pizza sounds sounds delicious – very fresh tasting! My bf and I are always looking to ‘healthify’ our pizza and this is going on the list of things to try. Thanks!

    I just bought a wheat shell from Whole Foods I wanted to make a pizza with. This sounds like the perfect toppings. I really like the idea of using the low carb tortilla though. That is typically what I would do rather than splurging on a whole shell.

    Just recently, I had a pizza on a tortilla for the first time and it was delicious! Ever since, I have been looking for good recipes to recreate it, and this is a GREAT one! Thanks so much for sharing this, Jessica. I’ll be trying this for sure.

    YUM! Jalepeno jack, black beans & cilantro are some of my favorites. I know if I throw those ingredients together in a dish my husband is sure to be happy! I’d be tempted to add some avocado on top – because I have no self control. But I love this light, healthy option!

    I love the fresh flavors in this! (And I clicked over to the Shock Jock undies and nearly choked. Hysterical.)
