"Fusion Cuisine"- Chicken and Red Bell Pepper Spicy Pizza

In the quest to use up the "Rotisserie Chicken" that I bought the other day .....This Spicy and mouthwatering pizza came into being!!! Rotisserie Chicken...by the way is a great value for money... I feel. With a $7-8 Rotisserie chicken you can easily make 2-3 meals. This time I used it to make Chicken Quesadillas, Chicken Alfredo Pasta and this Chicken and Red Bell Pepper Spicy Pizza...
I buy the chicken and shred it into pieces on the same day.I make portions and freeze them, so they are ready to be used for the dish I want to cook....
