Chicken + Pizza

I really feel like you can’t go wrong with pizza. Especially with chicken. Get in my belly, please.

I’ve had these two balls of pizza dough burning a hole in my pocket (??) lately. I’ve been going crazy with all the ideas of what I was going to do with them. I (obviously) had trouble deciding between all of the delicious ideas. And today as I opened the fridge and saw the queso fresco and thought “That would be delicious on pizza” I finally decided to take charge and make some pizza! YOLO! (I apologize for that)

And it was the best idea I’ve had all day. Besides my idea to put peanut butter frosting on brownies. Winning.

I made the dough about.. a month ago? And put half (2 pizzas worth) in the freezer for later use. It worked great! Just as yummy as before. I was very, very tempted to go the buffalo chicken- bleu cheese route.. but for some reason I didn’t but it’s going to happen soon because I do this thing where I think of an awesome recipe and then I crave it like its going out of style until I finally fix it. Soo buffalo bleu cheese pizza soon.

Go crazy with this pizza! But not too crazy because then you will spill feta cheese everywhere. Calm down now.. it’s just pizza.
