Pizza Pizza!! Chicken Pizza Two Ways!!



Here is "Budget Buster Bulk Cooking Chicken Edition" meal number 3!  Chicken pizza two ways.  Technically this is going to be two meals because we will only eat one pizza's worth of pizza for dinner than the other for lunch the next day so this could technically count as two meals.  Not bad from one chicken breast's worth of shredded meat!  

This could not be simpler!  I used my Big Batch Pizza dough recipe that you can find here: http://bit.ly/1lTqltm.

I used my favorite homemade BBQ sauce to make a quick Hawaiian style chicken pizza with shredded chicken, sliced pineapple pieces and both mozzarella and cheddar cheese.  You can use whatever is your favorite BBQ sauce.  You can find my "Almost Sweet Baby Ray's" BBQ sauce recipe here:  http://bit.ly/1js1HTp




I also made a buffalo chicken pizza.  I make a traditional buffalo sauce using 1/4 cup of melted butter mixed with 1 cup of Frank's hot sauce.  Since that is a little on the thin side for a pizza sauce I wanted to thicken it up.  I mixed in 2 tablespoons of instant clear jel which is a modified food starch.  This is the instant kind and not the type for canning.  It immediately thickened up my buffalo sauce to a pizza sauce consistency and made it perfect for spreading on the pizza dough!  If you would like to give instant clear jel a try you can find the brand I use here:  http://amzn.to/2i7BFsz  This is Ultra Gel brand, it is non GMO and really works great!  You can use it in both hot and cold applications and this is also what I use to stabilize whipped cream.  




The buffalo chicken pizza was simple!  Just spread the buffalo sauce on the pizza dough, add mozzarella cheese, shredded chicken and cheddar cheese on top and done!   Easy!  This was a hard night for me getting these pizza's in the oven!  So the fact that I even got to make a video was astounding.  In the end, we enjoyed pizza night with super puffy pizza due to the fact that the dough had to sit for a while before I could get to it!  Life happens.  Nonetheless, the pizza was delicious!

Don't let my pizza be your limit. You can make yours any way you like.  In the future, I would add sliced red onion and bell pepper to my Hawaiian chicken pizza and the buffalo chicken pizza would be great with some candied jalapenos added to it!  Let your imagination be your guide as well as the leftovers in your fridge!  You can put just about anything on a pizza and your family will be super happy you made it for them!




I hope you give chicken pizza two ways a try and I hope you love it!  I also hope that this budget buster bulk cooking series on chicken is helpful to your wallet and your menu rotations!

Happy Eating!

You can see how I made these in my YouTube video:
