Thursday, April 29, 2010

California Club Pizza

1 tsp. vegetable oil
1 pkg. refrigerated pizza crust (or make your own here)
2 c. diced or shredded cooked chicken (use your chicken from here)
2 c. shredded cheddar and Monterey jack cheese
2 plum tomatoes
1/4 medium red onion
1 medium avocado
1 lemon
6 slices bacon, cooked and drained

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly spray cookie sheet with oil. Spread dough out on bottom of pan. Top crust with chicken and sprinkle with cheese. Bake 16-18 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven.
Meanwhile, slice tomatoes in half, scrape out seeds, and dice. Slice onion. Cut avocado in half; scrape out and dice. Place avocado, onion, and tomatoes in medium bowl. Juice lemon to measure 2 tbsp juice; add to bowl and stir.

Distribute tomato mixture evenly over pizza. Sprinkle with bacon, if desired. Cut in squares and serve.(You'll notice from my picture that I only did half with the tomato mixture. My kids weren't too thrilled to try a new recipe, but they actually liked the half without the "stuff" on it :))

It was quite good, especially if you like different tasting things. My kids, not so much. If it's not cheese or pepperoni, it can't taste good, right? :)
