This recipe came to me when I was too lazy to cook Chicken Marsala, but didn’t want a boring pasta dinner. Having just gotten home from the Harris Teeter, I had already thawed chicken, on sale Franks Red Hot, and 10 for $10 raw pizza dough. Threw this together on the fly and I have to say, it turned out pretty damn good!
Yield ~4 servings
Time 45 min.
1 Package of chicken tenders (.5 – 1 lb) worth
5 – 10 oz Franks Red Hot Sauce
1 Raw Pizza Dough ball
Jar of Pizza/Marinara sauce
1-2 packs of shredded Mozzarella cheese (2-3 cups worth)
On a surface with flour, roll out the pizza dough so that it is just slightly larger than the device you will be cooking on. For me, I use a pizza stone, so I make sure it goes 1 inch or so over the edge. Place the rolled out dough on the device and sprinkle Mozzarella cheese on the edges. (Here you can use legitimate Mozzarella cheese from a ball of cheese, or the shredded cheese works just fine.)
Take some water and wet the surface just inside the cheese on the edge and roll the dough, tightly over the cheese to make the stuffed crust. Then pour pizza sauce in the middle of the dough, spreading evenly. Add the chicken on top of the sauce (how ever much you desire at this point). Top with cheese and there you have your pizza!
Place the pizza in the oven for 17-20 min at 400 degrees. You can leave it in longer if you want the cheese to get darker on the top, so it is basically up to you. Remove the pizza, let it cool, and then slice up and enjoy with your beverage of choice – mine being a nice, cold beer!
