Chicken Parmesan Pizza
I cannot believe that after five years of blogging I've never blogged a chicken parm pizza! More surprisingly, I'm surprised I've never cooked a chicken parm pizza! You see, when I go to a pizzeria for slices I always quickly peruse the choices and if there's a chicken parm slice I order it 9 out of 10 times. One could say it's a favorite of mine. So, why then, have I never cooked one? Well... I don't know honestly. Partially it's because I really love sauteed or grilled chicken on pizza, and partially it's just a complete mystery! At least I've finally rectified this issue.
In the interest of being transparent, I am 500% obsessed with Coleman Natural breaded chicken tenders. I buy them from Costco and keep them in the house at all times. Whenever I have no interest in cooking dinner I know I have those to fall back on, allowing me to create something that all three of us will enjoy. I used those (and a Boboli crust- it's barely a home cooked meal haha!) but you could use any breaded chicken you have.
1 pizza crust
4 ounces of cooked breaded chicken, diced
1/2-3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/3 cup basil, torn, and divided
1- Preheat the oven to 450.
2- Top the pizza crust with sauce to taste. Add the chicken and top with mozzarella cheese.
3- Add half the torn basil and sprinkle with garlic powder.
4- Bake for 12 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted. Top with remaining basil.
