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

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. My favorite type are ham croquetas. Obviously, right? It was one of the first recipes I posted on this blog. I live in Miami, croquetas are life over here!


Aside from croquetas, there’s another food that I can eat all the time and never get tired of it. Can you guess what it is?

If you guessed pizza, you are CORRECT!

So I thought why not turn a pizza slice into a croquette!

Similar to how I made ham croquettes, I took the same idea and added pizza flavors up in there!

All you need to make regular croquetas is to first make a filling using milk, flour, salt, pepper, and [insert variations here]. From there, you refrigerate it, then form logs, bread them, fry them and that’s how croquettes are born.

With a little effort and some creativity, the possibilities are endless.

For these pizza croquettes, I used complete seasoning with a pinch of red pepper flakes, shredded mozzarella, grated parm, and tomato paste.

The result was pretty impressive. You get BIG pizza flavors in one small bite!

If you don’t have Complete Seasoning, I gotchu!

6 tablespoons of garlic powder, 4 tablespoons onion powder, 4 tablespoons salt, and 2 tablespoons pepper, cumin, dried parsley, and oregano.

Don’t be scared to create fun recipes in the kitchen. At first, I was nervous about how these would turn out but I was very pleased with the final results.

Get inspired!
