Red and Yellow Pizza

18 Feb

As you know, pizza is my favorite food. You can do ANYTHING with pizza so the versatility really draws me in. This recipe came to me out of pure necessity. I had literally nothing in the pantry except for a few cans of tuna, cream of whatever soups, and a can each of corn and fire roasted tomatoes. What to do? What to do?

Make pizza, of course!

I simmered the drained tomatoes and corn with a few other ingredients until all of the juices were gone and I had a  nice thick stew-ish consistency. Threw it on partially baked pizza dough with a little spaghetti sauce and cooked chicken and voila! A vegged out dinner in 20 minutes. Lovely.

Red and Yellow Pizza

Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4
Level: Easy

pizza dough
1 can fire roasted tomatoes, drained
1 can corn, drained
1 tbsp. jalapeño, chopped
1/4 c. roasted red peppers, chopped, optional
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dried onion flakes
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. spaghetti sauce
1/2 c. chicken, cooked and shredded
1/2-3/4 c. cheddar, American,  or Edam cheese

Pre-heat oven to 425°. Roll out dough on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium heat, simmer next 10 ingredients until juices are gone, about 12 minutes.

Remove pizza dough from oven when done. Top with spaghetti sauce, cooked tomato and corn mixture, chicken, and cheese.

Bake for an additional 5-7 minutes. Yum!

Tips
-Add bell peppers  and onions to the mixture.
-Mozzarella would probably work, too.
-Omit the chicken for a vegetarian dish.
