When the Moon Hits Your Eye . . .

Like a big pizza pie . . . that's amore! Ok, time to fess up. I like pizza. No, correct that, I LOVE pizza! To me it is the perfect food, got all the basic food groups. Quick and easy to prepare. I don't like it as much as my son, tho!! He could eat pizza 3 times a day and never, ever get tired of it. I do like good homemade pizza, not frozen stuff.

I like to mix it up, tho. Don't like the same old pepperoni, mushrooms and olives. I like to mix and match with my bases, sauces and toppings. So the pizza I share with you today is a bit different.

Today, I am a bit crunched for time, so I am going to share with you a recipe that can be made when you are crunched for time. Super easy, kid-pleasing, not a lot of dirty dishes - you get the picture.

Chicken Alfredo Tortilla Pizza
Makes 1 pizza

The key to this recipe - do not overdo on the toppings! You do not want it very heavy or you won't be able to pick the pieces up. These are nice for a snack, too.

1 flour tortilla
2 Tablespoons Alfredo sauce
minced red onion
grilled chicken breast, diced
minced red bell pepper
black olives, sliced
fresh spinach leaves
sundried tomato or fresh roma tomato, seeded and diced small
fresh mushrooms, sliced
mozarella cheese
parmesan cheese
crisp bacon, crumbled (optional)


Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Lay tortilla flat on baking pan. Spread with alfredo sauce and layer with other ingredients as you like. Again, the key is not to overload. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until edges of tortilla are crispy brown. Remove from oven, slice and serve forth. This is really good if you like very thin crust pizza. There ya go. I will be sharing a recipe for another one of these jewels next week. I really like this topping, but you can mix it up.

Until Monday, dear readers!

Those look great, I like 'alternative pizza' and have used naan breads and pitas as a base before.

That looks like a great crunch time meal. I like the idea of a chicken alfredo pizza.

I'm playing catch up here this morning Raquel, so I hope you don't mind me combining all my comments as one. Everything looks decidedly delicious and I just gained ten pounds look at and licking my screen. I can't decide what I want to make first!!! Well done you! I think the carbaholic in me chooses the pizza!
