Creamy Chicken Enchilada Pizza Recipe

This is a twist on a family favorite. We wanted the taste of my chicken enchilada recipe, but we wanted it even faster. This kicked-up pizza is the fun creation we came up with.
Ingredients :
1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated thin pizza crust
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened, cubed
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups ready-to-use fajita chicken strips, cubed
1/2 cup salsa
1/4 cup green enchilada sauce
Optional toppings: Shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and sliced ripe olives

Preheat oven to 400°. Unroll and press dough onto bottom and 1/2 in. up sides of a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine cream cheese, 1/2 cup cheese, cumin, garlic powder and salt over medium heat; cook and stir for 5 minutes or until blended. Remove from heat. Add chicken; toss to coat.
Spread over crust. Drizzle with salsa and enchilada sauce; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake until crust is golden and cheese is melted, 8-12 minutes longer. Serve with toppings of your choice.

Test Kitchen tips :
The super creamy topping on this pizza will prevent the bottom of the crust from crisping up as much as a traditional pizza.
