Mango Chicken Pizza for Victoria Day Weekend
It’s the Victoria Day weekend in Canada. Hopefully everyone gets a chance to take a much-deserved break.
I know many people in the Ontario region will be traveling north to their cottages to relax and share some time with family and friends. Many of the cottages in the north are in fairly remote areas so ordering in food isn’t an option.
So if you are going up north this weekend and have a hankering for pizza, I’m here to help you out. Here is my Dy-no-mite Mango Chicken Pizza recipe. A flavor-packed pizza topped with chicken, mango, red peppers and a tangy sauce. Who needs delivery when you can make a sexy pizza like this! Have a great weekend everyone!
Dy-no-mite Mango Chicken Pizza
3 tbsp hickory-flavored barbecue sauce
3 tbsp ketchup
2 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice
¼ tsp chili powder
1 cup chopped cooked chicken breast
1 (12-inch) pre-baked, thin-crust pizza shell
1 mango, peeled and cut into ½-inch chunks
1/3 cup diced red bell pepper
¾ cup (packed) shredded Monterey Jack cheese (3 oz / 85 g)
1 tbsp freshly chopped cilantro
To make sauce, in a small bowl, mix together barbeque sauce, ketchup, lime juice and chili powder.
In a medium bowl, toss 2 tbsp of sauce with chopped chicken breast. Spread remaining sauce evenly over pizza crust leaving a ½-inch border. Top crust with chicken, mango and red peppers. Sprinkle with shredded cheese followed by cilantro. Place pizza on a round baking sheet.
Bake in a 425º F oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and edges are lightly browned. Let sit for 5 minutes before slicing.
Volume: Makes 1 pizza, 8 slices
