Chicken Garlic Pizza

I'm not a big fan of store bought or delivery pizza, but I LOVE making it from (semi) scratch. I decided to avoid a red sauce pizza this time and found a great recipe for this pizza. The garlic butter was delicious, and can also be used in making garlic bread. The recipe called for only one chicken breast, but my husband loves extra chicken on everything when possible so I used 2 1/2 chicken breasts. This dish was really simple to make and delicious. I will definitely make this pizza again!

1 chicken breastsalt and pepper

2 tsp. olive oil

2 tbsp. butter

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tbsp. green onion, chopped

½ tsp. dried basil

2 roma tomatoes, sliced

¼ c. chopped fresh cilantro

½ c. ricotta cheese

¼ c. Parmesan cheese

pizza crust (I used the Pillsbury brand)


Season chicken breast on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a skillet and cook chicken breast until browned on both sides. Cut into chunks and finish cooking until cooked through. In a small saucepan, melt butter with garlic, onion and basil. Pour into a chilled dish to cool and refrigerate until set. Preheat oven to 350°. Spread herb butter over crust. Arrange chicken on top, then dot with ricotta. Top with tomato slices, cilantro, and Parmesan. Bake 15-20 minutes.
