Grilled Chicken Taco Pizza

Taco Seasoning:
2 TBS onion powder
2 TBS garlic powder
1 TBS chili powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp ground cumin

For pizza:
1/4 c oil
1 lb chicken
1 tube pizza dough
1 c shredded mozzarella cheese
1 c shredded cheddar cheese
1 avacado
juice of 1 lime
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 TBS diced red onion
1 c fresh salsa
1/2 c sour cream
1/4 c chopped cilantro

Make the taco seasoning. Prepare the pizza: Mix 2 TBS of the taco seasoning and oil in a small bowl. Pound the chicken between 2 pieces of plastic wrap to 1/4 inch thick. Add the chicken to the bowl, turning to coat, and marinate 30 minutes.

Preheat grill to medium high heat. Grill chicken until cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Let cool, then cut into bite-size pieces. Divide dough into 3 equal parts. Roll out each on a floured surface into an 8-inch round. Brush with oil, sprinkle with taco seasoning, and grill until crisp. Remove from the grill.

Mix cheese in a bowl, then sprinkle on crusts and top with chicken. Return pizzas to the grill, and cook until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the avocado, onion, lime juice, chili powder, and cumin. Top the pizzas with the avocado mixture, salsa, sour cream, and cilantro.
