Today’s recipe for southwest pizza is a quick and hearty meal for busy nights. If you know you will be short on time, you can throw the chicken in the crockpot in the morning and for dinner, all you have to do is chop it up and make your pizza. It is as simple as that! This is also our 7th Tickle My Tastebuds Tuesday! How exciting!
