I needed something quick and easy for last night’s dinner because I didn’t have too much time between school and rehearsal. I considered buying frozen pizza (we really like Kashi’s frozen pizzas because they’re all natural)… but then Joelen’s blog inspired me!
Joelen posted a recipe for Aloha BBQ Chicken Pizza Squares. Please visit her blog because it definitely looks like a fun recipe for a party! My recipe was this:
1 Boboli thin crust pizza dough (like I said, I was in a hurry, and we like these!)
BBQ sauce (see note below)
shredded colby jack
about 1/2 cup canned pineapple tidbits, drained
1 skinless, boneless chicken breast
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees (place a pizza stone in oven while it’s preheating to get a crispier crust.) Cut chicken breast into bite size pieces, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and saute in pan with olive oil until cooked through. Meanwhile, top Boboli pizza crust with BBQ sauce (the amount is up to how “saucy” you like your pizza!)
*Note: you can use any kind of BBQ sauce. Of course you could make your own yummy recipe, but if you’re in a hurry like I was you can certainly buy some already made. I tried this brand that I found at the grocery store. It was fantastic!:
Sprinkle cooked chicken pieces and pineapple tidbits over pizza, and then cover with shredded cheese (again, amount of cheese depends on how “cheesy” you like your pizza.)
Optional: top with chopped scallions. I put scallions on 1/2 the pizza just for fun. Cook for 10 minutes at 375, and then bump up to 425 and cook for another 10 minutes or so if you’d like your pizza to be on the crispy side.
It was very good… Yum!
