Hey! I’m Ivirlei but everyone calls me Ivi. I am new to Casting Networks and to L.A. I’ve lived in Atlanta for 12 years and adjusting to a new city has been awesome, crazy, and amazing at the same time. I’m excited to share with you guys this recipe for one of my favorite foods…Pizza! I could eat pizza everyday no matter what kind. This recipe is one of my favorites. Feel free to make your own homemade crust if you like.
BBQ Chicken Pizza
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 skinless, boneless chicken breast half
1/4 cup barbeque sauce, divided
1/2 cup marinara sauce
1 (16 ounce) package pre-baked pizza crust
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1. Heat the sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place the chicken breast in the skillet, and top with 1 tablespoon barbeque sauce. Cook 10 minutes, turn, and top with 1 tablespoon barbeque sauce. Continue cooking 10 minutes, until juices run clear. Cool slightly, and cut into chunks.
2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
3. In a small bowl, mix the remaining barbeque sauce and marinara sauce. Spread evenly over the pizza crust. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Arrange cooked chicken chunks and red onion slices over the top.
4. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from heat, sprinkle with cilantro, and let sit 10 minutes before slicing.
