When chicken parmesan and pizza meet for the first time and hit it off, they become Chicken Parmesan Pizza buddies.
I never get tired of making pizza, especially when I make them healthy. This pizza however was just perfection. I recorded and the step by step process on my Snapchat and it occurred to me that I should also be posting my videos on here and on YouTube as well!
So while I work on that process, please excuse my low resolution description photos:
When you mix your pizza dough in a mixer, place the dough in a bowl and cover with saran wrap. Let it double in size in room temperature for 2 hours.
Place parchment paper on a pizza pan and sprinkle some flour on the pan and a rolling pin. Roll out the pizza dough until all the edges are covered and brush some olive oil on the dough.
Next, top with marinara sauce. After all behind every chicken parmesan is the marinara sauce right? 🙂
Top the pizza dough with cooked chicken and toppings of choice.
Top with fresh parmesan and other cheese blend. Place the pizza in the oven and bake for 11-13 minutes or until the edges of the crust are golden brown.
Viola! your Chicken Parmesan Pizza is ready for consumption.
