It's an elimination game night for the Habs...do or die!
And it's pizza night. Chicken pizza because while I love the Montreal Canadiens, in a game like this I always watch through my fingers over my eyes. Like a chicken.
2 tbsps olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tbsp flour
1 tsp basil
salt and pepper
12-15 cherry tomatoes, halved
a handful of spinach
1 cup chopped cooked rotisserie chicken
340g Italian blend shredded cheese
1/2 cup diced green pepper
Your favourite pizza dough for a large sized pizza, either frozen from the deli section of your grocery store or you could try this one
Start the sauce by heating olive oil in a saucepan. Add garlic and very lightly brown. Add flour to milk and stir into the pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook 1-2 minutes until slightly thickened.
Prepare your pizza dough on a 38 cm/15" pan then spread the sauce on top. Add chicken, green pepper and spinach.
Finally top with cheese and halved tomatoes and drizzle with olive oil.
Bake in a 500 F oven for 11 minutes, preferably on a pizza stone.
Then grab a glass of wine and Go Habs Go !
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
