Chicken Parmigiana and Prosciutto Pizza

Welcome to the 4th edition of "Fridge Fridays"

The purpose of "Fridge Fridays" is to share with you how I use leftovers from my fridge to create a meal.  

This pizza was so good!  It was even better leftover cold with a glass of milk!  

The Leftovers

Chicken Parmigiana:  We ordered out one night from a local Italian joint that we love and had leftover chicken parmigiana.

  • 1 pizza crust - click here for my homemade recipe
  • 1/2 c spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 lb leftover chicken parmigiana, cut into 1/2-inch pieces 
  • 2 oz thinly-sliced prosciutto, chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/4 c grated Parmesan cheese 
  • 1/4 c shredded cheese (I used a combination of cheddar and mozzarella)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees, or according to your pizza crust recipe directions.  Spread the tomato sauce evenly on top of your crust.  Add the chicken evenly over the tomato sauce and top with prosciutto and basil.  Sprinkle the cheeses evenly over all.  Season with salt and pepper.  

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the pizza crust is golden and the cheese is melted.
