Simple was the key for Sunday night when preparing dinner because I had one eye on dinner and the other eye on the tv watching The Oscars or Oscar coverage. That’s why I opted for the all time favorite – spaghetti.
I love me some “sketti”.
And don’t you just love all those dresses?!?
(Although some of those chicks really need to eat.)
The girly girl in me wishes there were more occasions to dress up – it’s so much fun!
Don’t get me wrong – I looooove casual but I do not think there are enough times that we go all out like they used to in the golden era.
You know – “dress for dinner”
Oh well. I’m sure there are more days that I’m glad I do not have to “dress for dinner” than there are days that I wish I could.
Since Sunday was just a staple dinner I thought last night I would try something a little different.
BBQ Chicken Pizza. Should be pretty simple and will go perfectly with the left over Cheesecake in the fridge.
BBQ Chicken Pizza
(adapted from My Baking Addiction)
- 1 store bought pizza crust or refrigerated crust
- ½ cup barbecue sauce
- 1 ½ cup cooked and shredded chicken (I pan fried a few chicken tenders and shredded that)
- ½ cup thinly sliced red onion
- ½ - 1 orange bell pepper; diced
- 1 cup mozzarella shredded cheese
- Chopped cilantro; to taste
(all these ingredient amounts vary according to size of pizza crust and your desired tastes)
Preheat oven to the temperature your pizza crust suggests.
Place Pizza dough on pizza stone or foil lined baking sheet and cook until it has a slight toast on it – about 5 minutes. (I opted for foil lined because my stone is round and this pizza crust was square)
Remove crust and spread barbecue sauce over crust. Add shredded chicken, onion, and bell peppers on top of the barbecue sauce. Top with cheese and cilantro.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until crust is deep golden brown. Garnish with more cilantro.
This was so so good! It tastes like you ordered it from a specialty pizza place! And EASY too!
I might add artichoke hearts next time – and there will be a next time – soon!
