When people say they don't like leftovers, I have to imagine that they are eating rubbery, dried out meat with limp and soggy veggies. That is not at all how I eat them. I actually really like leftovers because it gives me an opportunity to re-imagine the dinner into something else. This pizza is the perfect use for not only leftover chicken parmesan, but also any grilled, fried, or baked chicken as well. It is most definitely one of my favorite meals - leftovers or not.
And the best thing? It is so flipping easy. Just spread some marinara on pizza dough, top with some chopped up chicken breasts, and then cover the whole thing with mozzarella and Parmesan. It doesn't get any easier. Happy Friday, everyone - here's hoping for a delicious and fun weekend!
Chicken Parmesan Pizza
Pink Parsley Original
- 1 lb pizza dough
- olive oil
- cornmeal, for sprinkling
- 1/2- 3/4 cup marinara sauce
- 1 cup chopped chicken (fully cooked)
- 1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 Tbs chopped fresh basil
Sprinkle a piece of parchment paper generously with cornmeal, and then shape the pizza dough into a 12 inch circle. Brush the outer edge with olive oil. Spread a thin layer of marinara sauce over the dough, and top with the chopped chicken. Scatter the shredded cheese over the top.
Bake 10 minutes, or until the crust is golden-brown and the cheese is bubbly and browning. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with basil before slicing and serving.
