    tsp dried oregano

    can (15 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 2

    tbsp tomato paste
  • 1

    lb skinless, boneless chicken thighs
  • ½

    tsp salt and pepper
  • 2

    cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1

    cup thinly sliced mushrooms
  • ¼

    cup thinly red onion
  • ¼

    cup pitted halved black olives
  • ½

    cup torn fresh basil


  • Step 1

    Heat 2 tbsp oil in large high-sided skillet set over medium heat; cook onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin and oregano for 3 to 5 minutes or until slightly softened. Stir in Truly Lime Hard Seltzer; bring to boil. Cook for 2 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Stir in diced tomatoes and tomato paste; bring to boil. Add chicken, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook for 40 to 50 minutes or until chicken is very tender and sauce is thickened.

  • Step 3

    Remove cooked chicken, shred chicken with 2 forks and stir back into sauce. Let cool slightly.

  • Step 4

    Preheat oven to 425°F. Arrange 4 tortillas on parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Sprinkle each evenly with 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese; cap with another tortilla. Top with sauce and chicken, then sprinkle with remaining cheese. Top with mushrooms, red onion and black olives; drizzle with remaining oil.

  • Step 5

    Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese melts and bubbles; sprinkle with basil before serving. Cut each pizza into 4 slices.

  • Tip

    Substitute chicken breasts for chicken thighs, if preferred.
