Chipotle Chicken Skillet Pizza

Happy Family Day from Toronto! I don’t know about you, but I’m celebrating with a giant pizza.?If there’s one thing that’s always brought my family together, it’s pizza and board games night. After several years of choosing just this one meal, my mom has slowly fallen off the pizza train over the years. It’s a bit harder to convince her to have it for dinner with the rest of us, but as soon as we find a way to mix things up, she is more open to trying different combinations – like this roasted vegetable flatbread for instance. Or maybe she’s just sick of my dad’s regular pepperoni, mushroom and green pepper order.?

Though my favourite pizza will always remain a classic chicken, mushroom, green pepper and red onion with marinara sauce, I was recently inspired by one of my favourite combinations at Panago Pizza to create this Chipotle Chicken Skillet Pizza.

I have to say that when it comes to pizza, I’m really nothing like my mom. In fact, if I had to choose only one food to eat for the rest of my life, it would be a close fight between tacos or pizza. Though the base is always the same, you have so many different options when it comes to toppings – you can have Korean-spiced tacos, Greek-inspired pizza…the list goes on and on!

Though it sounds weird, I just really love corn, cilantro and jalapeños on a pizza. Combined with my easy peasy chipotle-marinara sauce and a make-ahead chilli-spiced chicken breast, this pizza is going to become your next favourite. If you’re not a big fan of cilantro you can always leave it off, and use basil, oregano or parsley instead. If you do decide to add herbs, make sure you sprinkle them over the top last so that they don’t disappear alongside the other toppings.

Can’t you just imagine this pizza with a nice glass of red wine after a long day??This is the ultimate Friday-night, Thank-God-The-Week-Is-Over pizza. I know it’s kind of depressing that I’m posting about this delicious, extravagant pizza on a Monday, but keep in mind that it’s a short week, okay? Plus…there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy this baby on a weeknight, just saying…?

This all said, skillet pizzas have the perfect crispy crust on the bottom, and are an easy way to get a perfectly round pizza if you’re not good at shaping dough. You just want to watch that your pizza doesn’t become a deep dish pizza, unless that’s what you’re going for. I find deep dish pizzas to be too heavy, and you don’t get a beautifully crispy crust that easily holds all your toppings. In this case, I find using half of a ball of store-bought pizza dough works best here.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Coat chicken in spices and bake in the oven once preheated for 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, roll out pizza dough, and stretch into oiled frying pan (preferably cast iron, but make sure it's oven safe).
  3. Take out chicken, and turn oven up to 475 F. Once preheated, put skillet with pizza dough into oven and cook for 8-10 minutes, until dough is slightly cooked.
  4. Meanwhile, slice chicken once cooled, and prepare pizza ingredients.
  5. Take dough out of the oven, then top with sauce, cheese and toppings (I leave off the tomatoes and cilantro until the end). Put back into the oven and cook for another 13-15 minutes until cheese is melted and ingredients look cooked.
  6. Remove pizza from the oven and garnish with fresh tomatoes and cilantro. Pizza should slide right out of skillet onto a cutting board.
  7. Once cooled for a couple minutes, slice with a pizza cutter and serve immediately. Enjoy!
