White Chicken and Bacon Pizza

Hello to all!!!! As you all know, I have a new job! But, I will still be blogging about recipes and food ideas, just not as often. Hopefully, you will try today's recipe - it is a pizza recipe my mom used to make for us all the time, and I make for my boys, and they love it! It is a white chicken and bacon pizza! Sooo good!!!!!!

What you will need:

Fresh pizza dough (I make my own, but, that is another recipe!!)
Left over chicken (rotisserie chicken is great for this recipe!), shredded.
Cooked bacon, cut into large pieces
1 tup of ricotta cheese
Fresh garlic cloves (1 or 2)
Parmesan cheese, grated
1 onion, sliced thinly
Balsamic vinegar
Olive oil
Butter (not margarine)

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

Roll out your dough according to the size of your pizza stone. Sprilkle some olive oil on the stone or baking dish and spread the dough out on top. Set aside.

In a pan, drizzle some olive oil, and melt approximately 1 tblsp of butter. Put all the onions in the pan, and let them cook down and caramelize. Drizzle a little balsamic vinegar on the onions and stir. Set aside to cool.

In a bowl, mix the ricotta cheese, a good hand full of parmesan cheese, grated garlic, and salt and pepper. Sprinkle a little olive oil in the mixture and set aside. Mixture will be thick.

Time to build the pizza!

On the prepared pizza dough, spread the ricotta mixture right to the edge, top with onions, shredded chicken, and bacon. Top with parmesan cheese, and then, drizzle with olive oil.

Place the pizza in the oven and bake until dough browns around edges, and is fully cooked. It will depend on the size of your pizza!

Let it cool a little before cutting your slices. Enjoy!
