Recipe: Chicken Caprese Pizza

Over the weekend, we made our favorite pizza and I wanted to share the goodness with everyone!

We first had this pizza at our favorite brewery here in Columbus – it was love at first sight … or first taste.
It is a Chicken Caprese Pizza which is made up of fresh ingredients that are so italian and so perfect.

First, you will need pizza crust of your choice.
They have packaged dough in most stores, you can buy a mix, or make from scratch (which would probably be the best).
We discovered Pillsbury thin crust pizza dough that is so buttery and everything Pillsbury should be. We use it all the time!

Pizza toppings needed:
1 grilled chicken breast cut into strips
handful of basil
1 large tomato
lots of mozzarella or parmesan cheese
½ cup olive oil with oregano mixed in

    Prepare and follow directions intended for your dough.
    Coat dough with olive oil mixture.
    Evenly place all toppings on dough. (We do this order from bottom to top: tomatoes, chicken, basil, cheese)
    Place in oven 
    As the pizza is cooking prepare Balsamic Drizzle:  
    In saucepan, pour in 3/4 cup of balsamic vinegar with a pinch of sugar. Place over medium heat and whisk until syrup-like consistency. Will take about 5-7 mins.
    Once pizza is done, use a spoon to drizzle balsamic over pizza.
Cut and Enjoy!

Between me and my boyfriend, this pizza was gone within 2 hours - It was a diet-free weekend, as always !
