It is raining cats and dogs once again and it is best to stay indoors, which is why pizza is the perfect food to prepare for lazy days on the couch while watching television. It is also a great party food or side. Even kids have fun assembling pizzas, although I am not sure that this flavor will appeal to them. It is always enjoyable to make it in different shapes and sizes, depending on the occasion. One thing is for sure though, I like the crust thin.
Grilled chicken and mushroom pizza has a barbecue sauce base to give this dish an aromatic flavor. I personally prefer hickory barbecue sauce because of its smoky flavor, but any type will do. You also have the option to buy prepared pizza crusts, but I am also recommending a homemade recipe. Adding some bell peppers to this recipe can also contribute more taste, while serving it with lettuce can give it some crunchiness and color too.
1/4 cup tomato sauce
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
2 pieces chicken fillet
1 large tomato, seeded and sliced
1 1/2 cups fresh button mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
Marinate the chicken in half of the barbecue sauce and preheat the oven at 250Â°C.soft and light brown.
Cook the chicken in a stove top grill for 3-4 minutes per side or until light brown. Once the chicken fillets are cooked, transfer it to a plate and let it cool. After, shred the grilled chicken or slice it into cubes.
While grilling the chicken, heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. SautÃ© the garlic for 1-2 minutes or until it becomes golden brown.
Place the pizza dough on a floured surface and roll it out. Put it on a greased baking tray. Spread the tomato sauce mixture over the dough. Top it with chicken, tomatoes, mushroom and cheese. Bake it for 15-20 minutes or until crisp and the cheese bubbles.
Remove the pizza from the oven and drizzle with the remaining barbecue sauce. slice before serving. Serve immediately.
