recipe today! black and blue pizzas

I was dreading giving this new recipe to my picky eater Brayden, I was ready to put up a fight, because first of all, it is pizza a kids favorite food right? Second of all,it’s homemade. And again, it’s PIZZA! So, as I was bracing myself, as he ate that first bite, he says, “hey this is really good mom!” Ok, Ok!! So, thought I would share it with you. I had intended to make this for a group of friends this week but we ended up canceling with all the other happenings with ‘stuff’ this time of the year. I will save it for another gathering for sure!

black and blue pizza

2 loaves frozen bread dough, thawed
8 bacon strips, chopped
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into pieces
5 tsp. blackened seasoning
3 shallots, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 jar (15 oz.) alfredo sauce
2 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1 can sliced ripe olives, drained
1/2 cup finely chopped sun dried tomatoes
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
12 slices provolone cheese
3 oz parmesan cheese, shaved into strips or 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

roll dough into two 16 in x 10 in rectangles; transfer to ungreased baking sheets and build up edges slightly.

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to papter towels to drain, reserve two tsp. of drippings. Sprinkle chicken with blackened seasoning; cook chicken in the drippings until no longer pink. Add shallots and garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Set aside.

Spread sauce over crusts; top with chicken mixture, bacon, mushrooms, olives, and tomatoes.Sprinkle with blue cheese, top with provolone and parmesan cheeses

Bake at 450 degrees for 14-18 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is melted

Serve with yummy green salad……yum, yum, yum!

The Angulo's - Marlece, This sounds so yummy! I’ll have to show my husband this recipe and see if he would be interested in us trying it out. I just can’t get motivated to try something new unless I know he is interested. He’s the one that usually brings home the bacon, you see? I don’t have a car. Lovely Post!

We are now your newest followers. Your more than welcome to come visit us at our new blog. I couldn’t keep the old one due to some unfortunate recent events.

God bless,

Mrs. A (Rosemi)
