Chicken Parmesan Pizza

Chicken Parmesan Pizza Recipe

It’s Friday night pizza time! And today I’ve got a super simple pizza idea that uses just 5 ingredients. You can swing by and pickup the ingredients for this pizza on the way home from your busy day.

Since chicken Parmesan is one of my husband’s favorite dishes, I thought I would incorporate those flavors in a simple pizza recipe.

This pizza starts out with Pillsbury’s Artisan pizza dough. I pre-bake the dough, then top it with Marinara sauce, sliced chicken strips that I picked up in my grocer’s deli and Italian blend shredded cheese. Then after baking, I just top with some freshly chopped basil. I served this pizza with a simple bagged Caesar salad.

My whole family raved about this pizza. They loved the cheesy fried chicken on top of the flavorful marinara sauce. If you want to make this a meatless recipe, just make your own oven fried eggplant, and slice before adding to the pizza.

    I’m shocked it’s taken me this long to run into a chicken parmesan pizza recipe. Everything about this works! Definitely making this happen in the kitchen this week.

    I am a bit confused…….In the narrative you say that you prebake the crust and in the directions…….you do not. Which is best?
