Happy Birthday Pizza

February 28, 2008 at 7:32 pm 13 comments

Today is my Dear Husband’s 29th birthday and instead of going out to dinner, he requested to eat in. He specifically asked for Cream Cheese Chicken. What!!? Who are you? and what have you done to my husband? Usually its Chicken Parmesan that he requests for any given occasion so after I got over the initial shock, I got to thinking that I wanted to try something kinda fun with his request.

Me and T both LOVE pizza. Anything tastes good topped on a pizza crust pilled high with mozzarella cheese. Am I right? (Well… I have to say that I am not a fan of pineapple on pizza though.) Since I still had the other 1/2 of the homemade dough that I made the other night, I decided to make a new pizza creation – Cream Cheese Chicken and Asparagus Pizza. Now I know what you are thinking (Nikki)… That sounds disgusting. But au contraire. It was scrumdiddlyumptious!


(Recipe and photos from me!)

INGREDIENTS

3 chicken breasts, cut into strips or chunks
1 can chicken broth, separated
4-8 cloves garlic, to taste
red pepper flakes, to taste
4 oz cream cheese
1-1/2 tbsp flour
2 tsp white wine
10-12 asparagus stalks, chopped into 1″ pieces
pre-made pizza dough
1/2-1 cup mozzarella cheese, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

Put chicken in large pan with a little bit of olive oil. Add red pepper flakes and garlic. After 1-2 min, add 3/4 can chicken broth and white wine.

Bring to a boil then simmer 20-25 min until chicken is cooked. Remove chicken and place in a covered dish; cover with foil to keep warm.

Mix flour with remaining broth and add to pan; mix. Add cream cheese, mix until thick and bubbly. Add asparagus and stir for about 4-5 minutes or heated through. Return chicken to pan; toss to coat chicken and asparagus with sauce.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Spoon 1/3 cream cheese sauce onto pizza dough and top with all the chicken and asparagus. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top. Bake pizza in preheated oven, until the cheese and crust are golden brown, about 15-20 minutes.

Served with a salad and Baskin Robbins ice cream birthday cake. :)

ENJOY! :)

    The kudos for this post are three fold.
    ONE – you made up your own recipe.
    ::raising roof::
    TWO – You used items you already had available (that were homemade!).
    ::raising it higher::
    Three- You agree that pineapple does not belong on pizza!
    ::raises roof even higher, burns it down, and booty bumps while singing “We don’t need no water, let the &(%$#(^% burn!”::

    Uh oh, I might have to disown you now. Cream cheese should not be anywhere near pizza, much less with asparagus mixed in. Give me ham & pineapple any day! Pineapple DOES belong on pizza, but only when combined with ham and/or bacon. Happy Bday to T!

    Happy Birthday to T!!! This pizza looks yummy to me – now if I could get hubby to eat asparagus, but that will never happen.

    SLUSH, its ok chica. Is it the asparagus or the whole combo?

    MICHELLE, thanks! This pizza definitely has cream cheese and chicken. Of course I think you could trade out any veggie for the asparagus but I think asparagus goes well with cream sauces… Happy bday to your hubbie too! How many years young?

    BB, J’s bday is March 2nd? Happy bday to him!! Lots of hubbie bdays around this time! w00t! I’ll glad come over and make him pizza when you some engineer invents teleportation. I love you but I hate driving!

    RACHEYPOO, ::hip bumping all night long::

    ZEBE, pineapple on pizza? EEEWWWW! Sorry we can’t be friends anymore. That just crossed the line. ;)

    K, I guess I am lucky in that department. T will eat anything I cook. He’s not very picky so I know if he doesn’t like something it really must suck. haha.

    You lost me at not liking pineapple on your pizza, then had me at cream cheese pizza, then lost me again at asparagus. 2 out of three wrong answers means you FAILED!! :P

    NIKKI, wait wait. You like mushrooms right? oh maybe you don’t. What vegetable do you like? You could probably replace the asparagus with about any veggie. Ah who am I fooling? I knew it would be a loser recipe with you. The cheese to veggie ratio was about 1:1. You wouldn’t have that. LOL

    Happy birthday to T!!! I think he should send you to Chicago for his birthday present! Oh wait, er, I mean…. ;)

    Hmm…this is an interesting combo. Not sure I would like it (even though you know I love pizza more than almost anything) but I’m glad you guys did! Good job on experimenting!

    That is not a good cheese to veggie ratio.

    MRSABY, I told him that too! But for some reason he didn’t think that was a good bday gift? go figure! haha.

    NIKKI, you really need to eat more veggies. seriously.
