My little brother is general manager of a very high end restaurant, so qualifies as a mega-foodie. As it turns out, he has been known to sneak around our kitchen, when visiting, to evaluate what appliances we might be missing, and then fills in the blanks for holiday gifts. That is how we ended up with our bread machine. We weren't particularly happy with the pizza dough recipe that came in the instructions booklet, so gave this one a shot, which turned out nicely. I made a double batch so that we could freeze half for later. I definitely enjoyed the convenience of being able to attend to the little one while the machine worked it's dough magic - hands free! Of course, you could make your own pizza using a store bought dough or base as well.
- 1 cooked chicken breast, cut into cubes
- 4oz skinny asparagus (cut into 2" pieces)
- 1/2 medium onion (thinly sliced)
- 1/2 red bell pepper (sliced)
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup grated mozarella cheese
- 4 tsp olive tepenade
Pre-heat the oven to 425. If using raw dough, roll out the dough and put onto the pizza pan. Once the oven is at temp, put the prepared dough in the oven for about 5 minutes to crisp the top. This prevents it from becoming soggy once the toppings are added. Remove from oven and add toppings - use the olive tepenade as your base, then top with mozarella cheese, chicken, veggies, and sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top. Bake for an additional 15 minutes. Enjoy!
