Chicken Pizza with Mushrooms & Onions

Chicken Pizza with Mushrooms & Onions

Thin-crust chicken pizza brushed with garlic basil olive oil, topped with shredded mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, and onions. Perfect to use up all that leftover chicken!

It’s no secret that I LOVE pizza but I also love using up leftovers!

Don’t you ever open the fridge and wonder what the heck to do with all those leftover veggies?

Or even all that leftover chicken?

Usually when I have leftover chicken, I make Crispy Chicken Tacos.

That’s my go-to! Those chicken tacos are easy and delicious crispy. Mmmm.

But I’m happy to report that now I (we) can add another leftover chicken recipe to the list – Chicken Pizza!

This recipe is super versatile. You just shred up all that leftover chicken and add it on the pizza.

After that, you just pile on all the veggies!

Mushrooms and onions are one of my favorite combos but you can truly make this your own and use up whatever you have in the fridge.

This Chicken Pizza along with my Prosciutto Pizza with Arugula + Mozzarella are beyond easy to make in the cast-iron skillet.

The result is a thin and crispy pizza that you can’t help but eat entirely!

Feel free to use whole wheat or regular store-bought pizza dough for this recipe. Trader Joes has super affordable ready-to-bake pizza dough and it’s perfect for this recipe. You can also make your own pizza dough.

Prosciutto Pizza with Arugula + Mozzarella

Thin-crust pizza brushed with garlic basil olive oil, topped with shredded mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced prosciutto, & arugula.

Friday nights as a kid were my favorite day of the week. Why? Because not only did I get to hang out with my favorite cousins, it was also PIZZA NIGHT!!

Seriously, I was (still am) such a BIG pizza lover. Pizza is one of those foods that even if it’s bad, it’s still good.

Am I right!?

Depending on where I go, I like to try different types of pizza. If I’m going to an authentic NY style place, I want cheese please. Only cheese.

Stuffed crust? Pass. Hawaiian pizza? YES!

If there’s prosciutto arugula on the menu, that’s a winner too! I love thin crust pizzas the most. Sorry Chi-town, I just can’t get behind that Chicago style pizza. It has too much…well, everything!

I’m all about thin crust which is exactly what I’m sharing today – thin, crispy, crunchy, and delicious. Brushed with olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and basil, I swear this thin crust prosciutto pizza is PERFECTION.

I definitely plan on making other varieties but for now – I hope you make this and you LOVE it!

Pizza Croquettes {Croquetas de Pizza}

Pizza Croquettes {Croquetas de Pizza}

Turn pizza into a croqueta! These bite-sized Pizza Croquettes are crispy logs filled with mozzarella, tomato, and spices. Small bites with BIG pizza flavors.

As you know my love for croquetas (croquettes) knows no bounds. The name of this blog should be a dead giveaway that croquetas are kind of my thing. My favorite type are ham croquetas.

When thinking about what recipes to make next, I decided I needed to make more croquettes in different variations. I mean I gotta live up to my blog name, right?

For the most part, everyone’s got their favorite type of food. Like tacos, for example. I have friends that absolutely adore Mexican food. They can have it all the time. Me? I’m not too wild about Mexican food.

Unless it’s guacamole. I can have guac + chips pretty much all day but aside from that, I’m not a huge fan of tacos or fajitas or Mexican food in general.

You know what I can eat all the time and never get tired of eating? PIZZA!

One person’s taco obsession is another person’s pizza obsession.

Yeah, mine!

I don’t know what it is about pizza that just makes me happy. It’s like ice cream. Ice cream makes me happy too.

Having a bad day? Order a pizza. Craving something greasy and delicious? Order a pizza!

Pizza just makes everything better. I’ll make my own pizza at home someday but for now, I’ll grab a NY style slice from a local pizza shop.

Or turn a pizza slice into a croquette.
