Well, I dug into my Gooseberry Patch cookbook that I am making 10 recipes out of over the next 3 months along with some of Real Farmwife pals. If you remember, the people voted over on realfarmwivesofamerica.com for me to cook out of and give away the Farmers’ Market Favorites. My first recipe…Bruschetta Pizza!
I will also be honest. I added chicken to the recipe. After seeing the Bruschetta Chicken Pasta over at Crumbs and Chaos from last weeks linky, I knew it would be delish.
Then grab 5-6 garlic cloves, 1/2 onion and 2 tablespoons of fresh basil and chop them all up.
Toss in bowl and add 1/3 cup olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 1/3 teaspoon garlic salt, and 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar. Stir to blend and set aside.
Grab a 13.8 oz tube of refrigerated pizza dough and spread out on a cookie sheet. Spread 1/2 cup of pizza sauce on top of dough.
Drain your bruschetta mixture and the put about 2 cups on top of pizza.
Next comes the chicken. I am glad I had thrown some cooked cubed chicken in the freezer a while back because after a quick thaw, it was pizza ready.
Top with a cup and 1/2 of mozzarella cheese or Italian mixture of cheeses, dried oregano to taste and drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over top of it all.
Bake according to the pizza crust directions.
It was so good. I put more than 2 cups of bruschetta on the pizza, so the crust was a little soggy, so I should have cooked it a bit longer than package directions.
