So I was NOT thinking clearly about the new dairy allergy when I wrote up my meal plan for the week and included pizza! Hello, CHEESE! So this pizza is cheeseless! I thought it tasted fine without the cheese, as the BBQ and red onions gave it a rich flavor. (But still, there’s just something odd about a cheeseless pizza!)
I’m on this “lets see how few dishes I can use,” so I’ve started marinating meats in the dish I plan to cook them in (except when grilling of course!)
Let’s get to the recipe!
2 chicken breasts ($1.66)
1 cup BBQ sauce (free) Used $1 Kraft coupon when on sale for $.98
Homemade Pizza Crust ($.80)
1/2 large red onion ($.29)
2 crushed garlic cloves ($.10)
1/2 – 1 cup BBQ sauce (free)
Lettuce from the garden (free from the garden)
1 Roma tomato ($.35) Also on sale this week!
1/2 cucumber ($.25) On sale for $.50 each this week!
2 small sweet potatoes ($.99) for the boys, as they are not big salad eaters!
1. Dice chicken breasts and pour 1 cup of BBQ sauce over the pieces. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Saute chicken pieces in skillet over medium high heat for 8-10 minutes, or until chicken has cooked through.
2. Prepare homemade pizza dough in the bread machine. Recipe/Directions here.
3. Meanwhile, saute chopped red onions and garlic in 1 tsp olive oil for 4-5 minutes, or until onions become more opaque.
3. Roll pizza crust onto pizza pan or baking stone. Top with 1/2 – 1 cup of BBQ sauce and spread around with spoon.
4. Top with cooked diced chicken and sauted red onions. (Top with 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese!)
5. Dice tomato and cucumber. Toss with lettuce and salad dressing.
6. Slit or vent sweet potatoees. Bake sweet potatoes at 350 for 1 hour in glass baking dish with 1 cup of water, or microwave for 7-10 minutes. Microwave cooking time will vary depending on thickness of each sweet potato.
7. Serve Homemade BBQ Chicken Pizza with Garden Salad and Sweet Potatoes.
