This pizza is good.
You should make it, because you already have the crust made, right?? :) You DID make whole wheat pizza dough already, didn't you? (check out yesterday's post if you missed it!! )
So here's what you need to make it!
So first, you want to cook one chicken breast. I just throw mine in a pan, slap some BBQ sauce on top, cover it with foil, and bake it at 375 for 45 minutes:
(also, I usually chop up the tomatoes and grate the cheese earlier in the day so that when it's time to make dinner, it's all ready to assemble. You don't have to do that, just an idea...)
Ok, so now you want to get out a pizza pan or a pizza stone and spray it with Pam(and also preheat the oven to 400 degrees):
I thawed my pizza dough on the counter for about 5 hours, then stuck it in the fridge until right before I was ready to use it. So plop the pizza dough on the stone or pan, and roll/pat it out to the edges of the pan. If it doesn't stay put (like, it keeps shrinking back up) let it rest for a few minutes, then try again.:
Then I put half the cheese, then the toppings, then the other half of the cheese. I would say I do about 3 cups of shredded cheese, one chopped chicken breast, two tomatoes (if they're a decent size). I save a few tomatoes to put on top of the last layer of cheese. The cilantro goes on after the pizza bakes.
(My cheese grater is so old and broken. I should really get a new one.)
So now you want to bake it for about 25-30 minutes....just keep an eye on it after 25 minutes. Don't let the cheese get too brown but you want the crust to brown slightly.
By the way, I think the kitchen sink is fixed. My husband crawled under there last night after dinner and started taking apart the garbage disposal (that is SUCH a guy thing- nothing would posses me to take apart something like that) and he was like, "oh, clearly it's the blah-diddy-blah flange and the do-hicky thingy here!" (ok, ok that's not what he actually said, but that's what I heard) So now I just have to leave all the kitchen stuff out on the floor until tonight to make sure it's really fixed and then I can put it all back. Whew!!
....and also.... LOOK!! My apricot tree is blooming- it's SO gorgeous!!
Have a nice day!!
P.S.- I cannot get the "dinner tonight" box thing to cooperate so I will just post the dinner tonight at the end of each blog entry!
