Pizza is so delicious, and since there are a million ways to serve it, I don't mind making it 3 or 4 times a month. Last night we enjoyed this Garlic Chicken Pizza, with tomatoes, spinach and red onions. It was amazing, truly amazing. I sent the leftovers with my husband to work and the other guys wanted to know where he bought it. He said he was proud to admit that his wife made it:) Love that! Sorry the pictures are kind of bright, but you get the idea.
Husband Rating: 5 stars
Note: I used my Best Ever Bread Dough for the crust. It made enough dough for one large cookie sheet of pizza and there was enough leftover for 10 breadsticks. You could make 2 medium pizzas, or one large and some breadsticks. Don't forget, you can also make a dessert pizza or cinnamon sticks with melted butter and sprinkled with cinnamon and brown sugar.
1 recipe of Best Ever Bread Dough or your favorite pizza crust
1 cup cooked, diced chicken
1 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese
1/4 red onion slices
3/4 cup fresh spinach, chopped
1/4 cup Caesar salad dressing
1 1/2 cups cheese, grated
1 tsp. Italian seasoning or Mrs. Dash garlic seasoning
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll out your dough in pizza pan, poke 10-15 holes with a fork, this helps your crust cook evenly. Bake the pizza dough for 10 minutes. In the meantime, stir together melted butter, cooked chicken, parmesan cheese and seasoning. After dough has baked for 10 minutes, assemble the pizza. Spread a thin layer of the Caesar dressing over the dough. Sprinkle the cheese. Spread around diced chicken, spinach, red onion and tomatoes. Bake for another 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.
Baking the crust first is a little trick that makes your pizza perfect every time. If you baked the chicken in the oven for the whole 15 minutes it would dry out and get a little crusty, while 5 minutes is just enough to make your cheese melty and finish off making the crust golden. Yum!
