Still Emptying Out My Freezer!
I didn't feel like cooking a big meal this weekend and knowing how much food I had in the freezer, I decided to create something from freezer stragglers.
What I found:
Homemade pre-baked focaccio
Store bought cooked rotisserie half chicken breast
What does it all add up to? White Pizza with Chicken! What more would I need? I know. Fresh tomato and basil from the garden and olive oil.
White Pizza with Chicken
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Spread pesto on the foccacia and drizzle with olive oil. Cover with shredded mozzarella. Shred chicken and add the pieces on top. Thinly slice the tomato and arrange on top along with a few basil leaves. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning, salt & pepper, a little more olive oil and bake for 10-12 minutes.
This pizza was really tasty and satisfying. I don't normally have chicken on my pizza, but in this case it was a great addition. It gave the pizza more substance and it worked really well with the pesto.
How full is your freezer? Sadly desolate or busting at the seams?
