Chicken Garlic Pizza

Good grief, this is a gooood pizza! I first made this recipe some time last year and loved it. I have no idea why it took me so long to make it again, but I am really glad I did. Ben and I both thought it was delicious. It really reminds me of the gourmet-style pizza we love to get from our favorite pizza place in Indy, Bazbeaux Pizza. If you are looking for a way to mix up your pizza with some creative toppings, check out their menu. I’ve tried a different one each time I’ve been and I’ve pretty much loved it all.

Chicken Garlic Pizza
Ingredients:
1 chicken breast
salt and pepper
2 tsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp. green onion, chopped
½ tsp. dried basil
2 roma tomatoes, sliced
¼ c. chopped fresh cilantro
½ c. ricotta cheese
¼ c. Parmesan cheese
pizza crust

Directions:
Season chicken breast on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a skillet and cook chicken breast until browned on both sides. Cut into chunks and finish cooking until cooked through. In a small saucepan, melt butter with garlic, onion and basil. Pour into a chilled dish to cool and refrigerate until set. Preheat oven to 350°. Spread herb butter over crust. Arrange chicken on top, then dot with ricotta. Top with tomato slices, cilantro, and Parmesan. Bake 15-20 minutes.

    This has got to be the best pizza I’ve ever made. Seriously, my boyfriend thinks I’m a goddess…which means my dear Annie, you are a goddess.
    We marinated our tomatoes in balsamic vinegar for about an hour because we aren’t huge fans of the red fruit. To our great surprise, the tomatoes totally made the pie.
    Thank you!!
