We are officially halfway done with the work week plus tomorrow is the start of March Madness so life is good! Today, I’m going to share a recipe that would be perfect to make if you are having friends over for all the basketball games!
My husband loves pizza and, unfortunately for him, I am the exact opposite. However, when he started making pizza crust from scratch a few years back, he found that I was much more excited to eat it! Ever since, we have been making this delicious pizza recipe and the great thing about it is that you can change up your toppings and customize it to your liking 🙂
Last week, we decided to make a grilled chicken and green pepper pizza. These are the ingredients you need:
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1/2 jar of pizza sauce
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese
- 1/2-1 lb cooked chicken breast
- 1 green pepper, chopped
First, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. To make the crust, combine all ingredients in a glass bowl and mix with your hands.
Grease a pizza pan and roll the dough out with a rolling pin. Once you have it evenly rolled, place the dough into the oven. (I like to do a thinner crust and that works well with this recipe.) Let it bake for 8-10 minutes, then remove it from the oven.
While the crust is baking, cut the chicken into bite size pieces and cook it on the stove top. Feel free to use any seasonings – we like to make ours with Italian seasoning, black pepper, and garlic powder.
Once you take the crust out of the oven, move the temperature up to 425 degrees. Top the crust with the pizza sauce first. Next, I like to add the chicken and green pepper. Put the cheese on last and throw the whole thing back into the oven for 7-10 minutes. Remove the pizza from the oven, cut it how you prefer, and enjoy!
