My husband yells from the kitchen, “Babe can you come look at this and let me know if this is enough cheese?!”
First off. I’m sitting down. Secondly. I’m sitting on the couch (the next level of sitting). Thirdly. He asked a stupid question, you always need more cheese. He retracted his question pretty quickly when he peeked at my “I’m not answering that” look.
So I was going to call this post “Yes my pizza has a hole in it. Come at me bro!” but then it turned out to be my second favorite pizza he’s ever made (I’ve ever had).
So we used canned/tin/those magical tubes that pop out cinnamon rolls, croissants and pizza dough. But the rest was by the book.
We keep eating it. Like it’s still sitting in the kitchen and we both keep getting up and yelling at each other “DON’T JUDGE ME!” as we walk in to eat another slice.
Long story short. You always need more cheese.
FROM THE CHEF
2 Tbsp butter
2 garlic cloves minced
2 Tbsp flour
½ tsp freshly ground pepper
¾ whole milk
¾ cup Italian cheese (we used a mix from the grocery store)
1 pizza dough (we were lazy and used a prepared pizza dough from the grocery store)
1 ½ cups diced chicken breast
¼ cup diced red onion
1 Tbsp chopped fresh oregano
1 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
- Blend the herbs together.
- Heat the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Melt the butter then add the garlic. Stir constantly for approximately 30 seconds until the garlic is fragrant. Add the flour and pepper and whisk for 1 minute. Gradually add the milk while whisking constantly. Cook for approximately three minutes until the mixture thickens and begins to bubble. Remove the saucepan from heat and add the cheese. Stir in the cheese until it has melted and combined.
- Lightly sprinkle the cornmeal over a baking sheet. Spread the dough over the sheet. Gently cover the dough with the cheese mixture, be sure to leave some room for a crust. Top the pizza with the diced chicken and red onion. Bake 15-17 minutes until the crust has that lovely golden brown color. Finish the pizza with the herb mixture. Allow it cool for 2 minutes. Slice it up and devour it!!!

*We always do our own take on the recipes we find by not buying branded products because we are poor and the store brand is cheaper and don’t waste time on those extra steps because life is hard enough. But we are not trying to take anyone else’s content or property just redistributing it with my sarcastic commentary.
