Grilled Chicken and Vodka Pizza

Everyone has a go-to meal for when they need to make something fast but don't have time or energy to devote to a really fancy meal. For me that easy meal is pizza. All three people in the Stephanie Cook's household love homemade pizza so that makes it an even easier choice. I know it's almost taboo to admit this in food blogging world but I LOVE Boboli's thin crust pizza crust. When I cook it on my pizza stone at 450 (or even 500) it gets so crisp and light. I still love me some homemade dough, but when I'm in a pinch a thin crust Boboli is my go-to meal.

I recently spent a LOT on a jar of vodka sauce (well, I thought it was a lot... $8 for a jar of sauce is steep but I was dying to try it) and I didn't want to see any go to waste. After making pasta with vodka sauce one night I found myself with 1/2 a jar left. I decided to use it on pizza and it was delicious! John kept raving about it and even Landon was enjoying it. I still have quite a bit left so I think I'll be making this again this week!

  1. This sounds amazing! I've heard of vodka sauce for pasta but not pizza, and I love to experiment with different pizzas so I'm going to have to try this
