Fast & Easy Dinner: Chicken and Onion Pizza

Fast & Easy Dinner: Chicken and Onion Pizza

Chicken and Onion Pizza

Ingredients

  1. 1 refrigerated pizza dough (10 ounces), or 1 prepared pizza crust, such as Boboli
  2. 2 teaspoons olive oil
  3. 1 medium-size onion (for about 3/4 cup sliced)
  4. 1 cup salsa
  5. 1 cup already-cooked chicken chunks
  6. 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to the temperature specified on the pizza crust package. If using refrigerated dough, prepare the crust for baking and prebake if necessary, following the package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in an 8-inch or larger skillet over medium heat. Peel the onion and slice it into rings, adding them to the skillet as you slice. Cook, stirring, until the onion is well browned and caramelized, about 7 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Spread the salsa over the prepared crust. Chop the chicken into very small pieces and spread them over the salsa. Top with the onions and the cheese.
  4. Bake the crust following the directions on the package until the cheese has melted and the crust reaches the desired crispness. Slice and serve.
