Are you looking for an easy meal that you can throw together quickly and easily, that’s packed full of protein and bursting with flavor? If you answered yes, you are going to love this easy chicken tortilla pizza!
Have you ever made pizzas out of tortillas? They are incredibly easy and so quick to make. It’s similar to making a regular pizza, but with the ultimate thin crust, a tortilla!
I’m a little bit obsessed with TortillaLand® Flour Tortillas. Have you ever had them? You get them in the refrigerator section of your grocery store, and cook them up in minutes at home. They are absolutely amazing. I’ve made homemade flour tortillas, they are a tremendous amount of work, and not something I care to do often. TortillaLand® Flour Tortillas are every bit as good, made from 5 simple ingredients, and contain no preservatives. Once I tried these I had to break up with those tortillas you buy on the shelf. There’s really no turning back.
You just heat them up in a non-stick pan. I use them all the time for burritos, tacos and quesadillas.
The folks at Tyson Foods, Inc. and Pinnacle Foods Group LLC wanted to see what I could make when I combined these tortillas with Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing and Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken. I was a little stumped at first, as I typically make Mexican foods with my tortillas, but once I switched my thinking over to Italian flavors, clearly I had to make pizza!
I love white pizzas, especially in the summer. They just seem lighter and suited for the summer heat. Italian dressing instead of red sauce? Absolutely! I simply brushed some on to my tortilla before assembling my pizza.
Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing’s robust, full-flavored dressing is full of herbs, seasonings and flavor, really creating a great flavor base for this pizza. After brushing it with the dressing, it was time for some toppings! Cheese is a must, and I’m always looking for ways to get more protein into our diets. I think my kids could live on carbs alone, so any time I can get chicken into the mix, I’m all for it.
In order to keep this quick, I went with Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Oven Roasted Diced Chicken Breast is fully cooked, all natural and made with white meat chicken. If you are like me and always looking to add protein where you can, this is a great product to keep in the freezer, allowing you to add some chicken to any dish at a moment’s notice.
After the chicken it’s time for some veggies! Some tomatoes, red onions and a bit of parsley, and this pizza is ready to head into the oven for 10-12 minutes.
And out comes a fabulous meal that you pulled together in minutes – Chicken Tortilla Pizza! This is quick and easy enough that I like to make it as a lunch during the week, or I pair it with a salad for dinner. You can get the kids involved and have them help you, or make yourself a delicious lunch exactly how YOU like it!
Depending on toppings, this can be a single serving, or it can be shared, as I like to do. Truly an easy and delicious meal full of summer goodness.
