Santa Fe Pizza

This pizza has a unique medley of flavours that come together to form a wonderful dish. The chicken breast is diced and coated with the hot sauce and the fresh sliced jalapeno help to provide some heat.  At the same time the black olives and sundried tomatoes give the pizza a rich and deep flavour. I used a thin foccacia bread that was lightly coated with herbs and olive oil.
