Chicken Parmesan Pizza with Homemade Bisquick Pizza Crust

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

I have a confession. My usual weeknight pizza is made from a box. We love the Chef Boyardee Pizza Kit. It is Chicken Legs' favorite pizza. He prefers it over any other pizza - homemade or restaurant. I didn't have a pizza kit in the pantry for pizza night last week, so I made a quick pizza crust from Bisquick. I was worried that Chicken Legs' wouldn't like it, but he declared that he liked it better than the Chef Boyardee crust. WOW! He really, really likes the Chef Boyardee, so I knew the crust was a keeper.

I fancied up the pizza crust by topping it with some frozen popcorn chicken and fresh mozzarella cheese. I added some mushrooms because Chicken Legs loves mushrooms on his pizza. The pizza was a huge hit with us. I loved the fresh mozzarella and chicken. The crust is our new standard pizza crust. I love it because it only takes a few minutes to whip up. It is great for a quick and easy weeknight meal.
