In The Kitchen: SPICY CHICKEN & BROCCOLI "PIZZA"


I did a variation of this a few months back with my Chicken & Artichoke Tart I decided to change it up with a white sauce & broccoli this time!

Dinner in under 30 mins :)

Ingredients:

Cooking Spray
2 Puff Pastry Sheets (1 Box)
1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
1/4 Alfredo Sauce
2 Cups Broccoli (You can use less but you know my obsession with this amazing veggie!)
1/4 cup Banana Peppers
1 Cups Cooked Chicken
1/4 Mozzarella
Salt & Pepper to taste


Pre-Heat oven to 400 Degrees F.

Spray your aluminum pan with cooking oil and defrost your puff pastry on top for 30 to 45 min and then pinch together so it forms one large piece.

Add your minced garlic.


Spread evenly on the puff pastry dough.

Pop the puff pastry in the oven for 5-10 min just long enough for the dough to firm up and it "roasts" the garlic into the dough.


While your dough is baking take your diced chicken and season with salt & pepper


I like to add a splash of the Banana Pepper "juice" because I think the tartness of the Banana Peppers is a nice contrast to the creamy richness of the Alfredo Sauce.  Add the juice and then shred your chicken and stir everything together.


By then your dough should be done and you can take it out of the oven.


Now it's time to construct your "pizza" spread your Alfredo Sauce evenly on the bottom and layer with the Broccoli.


Then your chicken


Banana Peppers


And finally your Mozzarella.  

I like to leave about a inch of space around the rim for the "crust"

Pop it in the oven for another 15-20 mins.


Bake until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown!


I let it set for a good 5-10 min before cutting in otherwise the ingredients tend to slide off if you try to pick it up right away lol.  After it's been sitting for a bit it tends to firm up :)

Pair with a nice salad and you're good to go!

BTW this is also REALLY good w/ some sliced steak it's like a Philly Cheesesteak pizza :p
