It's Too Yummy Tuesday!
Gourmet Pizza with Applewood Bacon, Chicken, Onion, and Balsamic Strawberry
On select Tuesdays I share delicious recipes either inspired by my books or that are just plain delicious!
Just in time for Superbowl Sunday, here's a gourmet pizza unlike any you have tried!
GOURMET PIZZA WITH APPLEWOOD BACON, CHICKEN, ONION, AND BALSAMIC STRAWBERRY SAUCE
Carmelize the onion first for an even milder flavor, but I like the added crunch and kick of thinly sliced raw onion. Mushrooms are an added bonus, if you'd like.
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup strawberry preserves/jam
sriracha to taste
1 cup cooked chicken, shredded or cut into bite sized pieces
1 1/2 cups mozzarella, shredded
1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
1 pizza dough
4 slices smoked bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces and cooked
1/4 cup sweet onion, sliced
3/4 cup strawberries, sliced
1/4 cup cilantro, torn optional
Bring the balsamic vinegar to a boil in a small sauce pan, reduce the heat and simmer until it reduces by half, about 4-5 minutes.
Mix in the strawberry preserves and sriracha to taste.
Mix 2 tablespoons of the balsamic strawberry sauce into the chicken.
Roll out the pizza dough and spread the remaining balsamic strawberry sauce onto it.
Sprinkle on 3/4's of the cheese, the chicken, bacon and onion followed by the remaining cheese and finally 1/2 cup the strawberries.
Bake in a preheated 500F oven until golden brown on top, about 5-10 minutes.
Sprinkle the remaining strawberries and the cilantro onto the pizza.
