1/2 Chicken and Green Olives – 1/2 Pineapple and Ham Pizza! Wow! This takes me back home with every bite. Pizza places in Cartagena feature the chicken and green olives pizza in their menus. A rare item to find in pizzerias here in the US. Of course we had to include it in our pizza galore… 🙂
Ingredients: Store-bought pizza dough of good quality, marinara sauce (store-bought or homemade), cooked chicken (boil 1 breast of chicken with just salt and pepper), green olives, pineapple, ham, mozzarella cheese, olive oil, oregano, red pepper flakes and Parmesan cheese to garnish (optional.)
Start with store-bought dough of good quality. Spread it on the pan and let it bake in the oven for 5 minutes at 500 degrees F. Then take it out and cover the pizza dough with marinara sauce. Add a layer of mozzarella cheese. Cover half of the pizza with chicken pieces and green olives and the other half with pineapple chunks and ham pieces. Add some 1 TBSP of olive oil drizzling all the area and finish with 1 TBSP oregano to cover all the pizza. Put it back in the oven for 5 minutes also at 500 degrees F. Check the pizza before the 5 minutes are done, as oven temperatures vary. It will be done when the edges start to turn brown.
Cut, serve and enjoy this pizza with a glass of good white wine! 🙂
