Chicken Club Pizza

Hi Everyone!  I have several recipes to be published in the next couple of days, but before I post them, I just wanted to remind everyone that I have an awesome giveaway going on right now!  Click here for details and for your chance to win a Pillsbury Sweet Moments prize pack!  

Now, onto the recipe!  I got this recipe from my friend Shannon who has been making it quite a bit for her family lately.  She says it's a big hit!  This chicken club pizza definitely was a hit in my house!  I made a few changes, like using homemade pizza crust instead of store bought, and I used leftover pesto chicken instead of buying a package of pre-cooked chicken.  Here's the recipe, my modifications are in red.

Chicken Club Pizza

    • 1 can (13.8 oz.) refrigerated pizza crust (I used a homemade crust)
    • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
    • 1/2 cup  Ranch Dressing 
    • 1 to 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I used a mix of cheddar and mozzarella)
    • 1 to 1/2 cups finely chopped cooked chicken (I used leftover pesto chicken)
    • 8 slices Bacon, cooked, crumbled
    • 1 to 1/2 cups finely shredded lettuce
    • 1 tomato, finely chopped
      1. HEAT oven to 400ºF.
      2. UNROLL pizza dough on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray; press into 15x10-inch rectangle. Bake 10 min. I rolled my crust out onto my rectangular baking stone and then baked for 10 minutes.  
      3. MIX mayo and dressing; spread onto crust. Top with half the cheese, chicken, remaining cheese and bacon. I also topped with the tomato at this point too.
      4. BAKE 5 min. or until crust is deep golden brown and cheese is melted. Top with lettuce and tomatoes; I put the tomatoes on in the previous step and baked them with the rest of the toppings.  I topped it with the lettuce after removing it from the oven.  Shannon said she also adds sliced avocado to hers. 

    Until next time, happy and HEALTHY cooking and EATING!
