Footnotes

  • For an appetizer, cut pizza into bite-size squares, and insert a party toothpick into each piece.
  • Go from turf to surf! Use 1/2 lb cooked shrimp in place of the chicken in this recipe.
  • Sprinkle the pizza with fresh cracked pepper for an extra boost of flavor.

This was so good! It was a nice change from typical pizza. I made this with shrimp, I sautéed them first in butter, olive oil, garlic and salt and pepper, turned out wonderful! My husband said this recipe is a keeper!

This was delicious! We made it for a party and cut it into smaller pieces so it was more like an appetizer. Everyone loved it, even the kids. The only thing we did different from the original recipe is to brush the crust with a little olive oil before we baked it.

My roommate and I just made this and we loved it. We put some olive oil on the crust before baking it. Also, we laid all the tomatoes flat and then put a little cheese on it, then a little chicken, then a lot more cheese, then all the chicken then the rest of the cheese. It was really delicious!
