Printable Recipe – Chicken Pineapple and Mixed Peppers Pizza
Why go out for pizza or have it delivered when you can make our own homemade pizza that will have a ton of flavor and cost a lot less than a retail one? You can load the pizza with your favorite toppings too, without paying extra for each one.
The base of the pizza is a freshly homemade pizza sauce. I topped this off with fresh basil leaves and a special cheese that I discovered recently – Sartori rum runner. It is a moderately soft cheese that melts beautifully and goes well with these Hawaiian flavors. What is not to like about rum and pineapple, after all?
Gather your ingredients. One boneless, skinless chicken breast will do. You will also need about 1/4 of a fresh pineapple, some pepper rings. I used three from my garden, yellow banana, and a red and green. Grated cheese and your fresh pizza sauce are the only other ingredients.
Cook the chicken pieces in a pan sprayed with Pam cooking spray.
I made the sauce right before I made the pizza. It only takes 15 minutes and is delicious. You can also make the recipe ahead of time and it freezes well. Sauce recipe.
You can either make your own pizza crust or use a packaged one. For this pizza, I used a Boboli pizza base. Next step it to grate the cheese.
Spread the pizza sauce over the base evenly. Leave about 1/2 inch at the edges so the sauce does not drip over the edges and burn in the oven.
Scatter your chicken pieces, pepper rings and pineapple chunks evenly over the pizza being sure leave the 1/2 inch edge.
Top evenly with the cheese. Cook in a preheated oven 450 º F oven. Use the bottom shelf for the crispiest crust. A pizza stone is best but a pizza pan or cookie sheet will do too. I cooked mine about 10 minutes.
