Pizza…Pizzazz!!

I like pizza just as much as the next guy.  However, I like experimenting and going outside the “pizza” box.  I got these ideas from a restaurant that I used to go to in Chicago – Edwardo’s.  My three favorites they had on the menu were BBQ Chicken, Thai Chicken and Vegetarian.  Here are my takes on them…even a chadrool can make them…

BBQ Chicken

1 Boboli Pizza Crust

Olive Oil

Garlic Salt

2 cups cooked chicken

Chopped Clilantro

Thinly sliced red onion

Monterey Jack or Monterey Pepper Jack cheese

Preheat oven to 350-degrees.  Brush Boboli Pizza Crust with olive oil, dust w/ garlic salt.  Place in oven for about 5 – 8 minutes.  Toss chicken with your BBQ sauce.  Pull out the crust, brush with BBQ, layer chicken, cilantro, onion and cheese.  Place back into oven until cheese melts and starts to brown.

Thai Chicken Pizza

1 Boboli Pizza Crust

Olive Oil

Garlic Salt

2 cups cooked chicken

1 cup of bean sprouts

1 cup shredded carrots

4 green onions sliced

½ half of red bell pepper diced

1 clove of garlic minced

Chopped cilantro

Red pepper flakes

Peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350-degrees.  Brush Boboli Pizza Crust with olive oil, dust w/ garlic salt.  Place in oven for about 5 – 8 minutes.  Pull out of oven, brush with peanut butter, spread chicken, sprouts, carrots, green onions and carrots over crust.  Sprinkle red pepper flakes.  Place back into oven until warmed thru.

Vegetarian Pizza

1 Boboli Pizza Crust

Olive Oil

Garlic Salt

1 sweet/Vidalia onion sliced

1 8 oz. package of mushrooms sliced

½ red bell pepper diced

Chopped cilantro

Shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350-degrees.  Brush Boboli Pizza Crust with olive oil, dust w/ garlic salt.  Place in oven for about 5 – 8 minutes.  Meanwhile in a sauté pan, caramelize onion, add mushrooms and bell pepper until they just start to get soft.

Spread vegetables over pizza crust, sprinkle with cilantro and cheese.  Place back into the oven and heat thru until the cheese melts/starts to turn brown.

These are just what I like on these pizzas, but feel free to add/subtract from them.  This is just a home-base recipe that you can create upon.  Cooking is not an exact science…it’s what appeals to you. Mangia – Mangia!

Enjoy!
