Caprese Chicken Pizza

Ingredients

  • 1 Pillsbury refrigerated pizza dough not thin crust
  • 2 tbs virgin olive oil
  • 3 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp dry pizza seasoning if you don't have that, it's oregano, basil, dry garlic powder and marjoram
  • 3-4 oz fresh mozzarella cheese grated
  • 1 medium chicken breast cooked
  • 1 large tomato
  • 10-12 fresh basil leaves
  • salt fresh cracked pepper
  • Some cornmeal for baking the pizza

Instructions

  1. Grill the chicken in a frying pan with some salt and pepper. Slice thin and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400.
  3. Slice tomatoes thin and set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the oil, vinegar and dry pizza seasoning.
  5. Lightly grease a pizza stone or a baking sheet you'll be using and lightly sprinkle with some cornmeal. Roll out the refrigerated pizza dough on the baking sheet.
  6. Using a brush, cover the pizza dough with oil/vinegar mixture (not too much). Season with a little bit of salt and pepper.
  7. Evenly spread out the grated Mozzarella cheese over the dough.
  8. Evenly spread out the tomato slices, covering the whole pizza.
  9. Spread out the chicken over the pizza and the basil leaves. Sprinkle with a little bit more salt if you'd like. You can sprinkle a little bit of the leftover oil/vinegar mixture on top.
  10. Bake for 13-15 minutes, until the pizza crust is golden brown. (A couple of minutes longer if crispy crust is desired.)
