So, last night was cheat night, as in Cheating On My Diet!” You can read more about it here at http://wp.me/p5JZ3f-1l
What better way to cheat on your diet than with a decadent, absolutely delicious, homemade, “Pizza!” Two different ones to be exact. That was followed up later with “Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia Fro Yo” Yes, I chose the frozen yogurt over my usual delectable ice cream. Surprise, surprise . . .It was awesome! Anyway. back to the pizza!
My home made pizza’s were a mountainous, momentous, mouth watering, mixture of madness, that had everyone, well, me, my wife and daughter saying; “Mmmmm, OMG this is so good!” So sit back, take notes, print it out and get a drool bin for when your mouth waters with excitement . . . ready? Here we go!
Two (square or round) pre-made thick pizza crust’s. (I got mine at BJ’s Wholesales) You could make your own too, if you wanted to . . . or knew how to!
Chicken tenders or chicken breast, baked and cut into bite size pieces. Next, toss and cover cut chicken in sweet and spicy BBQ sauce (I usually season my chicken before baking with salt, coarse ground pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and smoked paprika)
BBQ sauce- I use sweet and spicy, but feel free to use whichever is your favorite
1/2 onion chopeed
1/2 red pepper chopped
8-12 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup Fontina cheese, shredded, 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded, 1 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
Set your oven to 425 degrees
Saute your chopped onions and peppers in a little butter just to soften. (do not over cook them)
You will be making 2 different pizza’s so either use 2 cookie sheets or pizza stones or bake them one at a time.
Place pre-made pizza crust on the cookie sheet or stone and drizzle with a little bit of olive oil.
Pizza # 1- cover crust with about 1/2 cup BBQ sauce. top crust evenly with the BBQ chicken pieces. Using half the onion’s and pepper’s, cover pizza with about half of the mixture. (saving the other half for the next pizza)
spread half the crumbled bacon over pizza and do the same thing with all 3 cheeses.
Place in oven for approx 10-15 minutes, making sure to keep checking it so the bottom doesn’t burn.
Pizza # 2- Cover pizza with about 1/2 cup pizza sauce. Top with the other half of onion”s and pepper’s, bacon and 3 cheeses
Place in oven for 10-15 minutes checking to make sure bottom doesn’t burn
Remove from oven and . . . .ENJOY!
