Make a simple, better Pizza

For about the same amount you are about to spend on that grocery frozen pizza, you can enjoy this simple, home made, bigger, delicious pizza. I am a Rookie House Wife. I did not come with cooking skills, so believe me when I say that this is super simple and delicious.

The ingredients are very healthy and work well together. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. You want to start by making your chicken. I prefer the skinless, boneless chicken thighs. They stay moist and juicy and really lend themselves to being cooked twice. I sometimes cook my chicken in a pan with Olive Oil, other times I just throw them in the sandwich presser. The sandwich presser is nice because it cooks quickly and evenly on both sides. You can be a little more generous with the seasonings since it will be baked into your pizza, but watch the salt.

Walmart currently sells a prepared pizza dough for under $1! You can find it by the deli in the fridge. They offer plain and whole grain. I always buy the whole grain one. It is so mild, you can't tell the difference. What a great opportunity to sneak in the good stuff. You will need loose flower to manipulate the dough. If you are like me and do not have it, pancake mix will do nicely. Now its time to play with your food! It is actually a lot of fun to throw the dough around. My pizzas come out rectangular-ish since I don't have a round pizza pan. Once I have flattened the dough, I drizzle a layer of Olive Oil on the dough followed by a layer of submarine sauce and use a pastry brush to distribute the sauce evenly. My household does not use tomato sauce at all. Besides not caring for it too much, special diets for chronic migraines and such prohibit it. The lack of sauce makes for a lighter tasting pizza with less opportunity for acid reflux. Toss the cheese and chicken on it and bake until your dough is cooked and your cheese is melted.

You can pair this simple pizza with a nice caesar salad and you are all set. Its great for a last minute meal, cost less than and is ready sooner than ordering out, it taste tons better than the frozen variety pizza, and gives you plenty of feel good ingredients. The best part of pizza is that you can throw just about anything on it. Add veggies, switch out the meat, mix up the cheese and make your own creation!

Many Blessings!

Don't forget your shopping list!

      Thanks for commenting Sunnyglitter. These are my favorite. I still can't find a replacement for the garlic knots I like.
