For this Mitten Movie Night we are watching The House.  This movie has TWO of my favorite actors, Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler.  While I’m a bigger fan of Ferrell’s earlier work (Anchorman, etc.) I cannot NOT watch a movie he is in.  No way, no how.  Tonight we’re drinking Tasmanian Hatter from New Holland Brewing.  This IPA was made for rich BBQ sauce, tender pork and gooey cheese.  Then just for fun, let’s dip it into some ranch!  Now on to flavor town…I mean the recipe.

While I do like to make my own pizza crust sometimes when you have ingredients that are already fixed why not just go all in and grab a roll of pre-made crust from the store?  There is no reason so that is what I did.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  On a pan put parchment paper and spray some non-stick olive oil on it. Lay out the crust then using a rolling pin roll it out so it reaches each edge.  Top the crust with BBQ Sauce.  For this I used my very own Best BBQ Sauce which is a vinegar/Memphis style.  Next layer the shredded Parmesan cheese, pulled pork, chopped red onions and then the shredded mozzarella.  Sprinkle with oregano to make it pretty.

I happened to have a cup of bacon jam left over from my PB&J Burger so I put 4 heaping spoonfuls on top  of the mozzarella.  If you do not have bacon jam you could easily add crumbled bacon to the top for that extra level of smoky flavor.  Bake in the oven for 22 minutes until the edges are golden brown and the cheese is melted.  Slice it up into 15 pieces and here you are……

White Chicken Pizza with Basil & Blackberry Sauce

It’s time for Mitten Movie Night!  I’m serving up a creamy, cheesy white chicken pizza with an added sweet twist on top and enjoying one of my favorite Michigan Craft Beers.  This pizza makes perfect use of summer grown basil, I know my plant is bursting.

Tonight I made White Chicken Pizza with Basil & Blackberry Sauce.  A sweet & savory combination on a homemade pizza crust.  While this has a long and fancy name trust me it didn’t take long at all.  Best of all it is delicious!  We are watching Joy.  Jennifer Lawrence kind of rocks, right?  And finally we are drinking Oberon from Bell’s Brewery.  If you are even remotely close to Kalamazoo, Michigan it is a must visit for any craft beer lover.  So gather your ingredients….

Start with the crust.  Mix yeast, water & honey together.  Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit for 10 minutes.  See photo below in the collage to make sure yours has the same consistency.  Now add the flour, honey & salt to the yeast mixture.  I do not have a fancy mixer (I want one so bad!) so I had to just hand mix this.  Start by stirring with a spatula then complete by hand.

Once it is all combined flip out of bowl onto a floured surface.  Cover with towel and let sit for 5 minutes.  Uncover and roll your dough out to the size of your pan.  Mine is pretty cool, it has holes in the bottom of it which makes the crust really crispy.  Once the dough is on the pan place in the oven at 450 degrees for 12-14 minutes.

While the pizza crust is doing it’s first bake through cut up 1/2 an onion and shred up your chicken if it isn’t already.  We get rotisserie chickens from Costco so I cut off about half the chicken to use.  In a pan heat up 1/2 Tbs butter, 1/2 Tbs olive oil and add your onions and chicken.  Saute until onions are soft (this will just heat your chicken up since it’s already cooked) around 5 minutes.

When the pizza crust has cooked for 12-14 minutes take it out of the oven and assemble the rest of the ingredients on the top of it.  Ricotta cheese, chicken & onions then the Italian Shredded cheese.  Place back into over for another 15 minutes.

About 5 minutes before your pizza is out of the oven add the blackberry preserves and 3 Tbs water to a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil letting the preserves breakdown to create a sauce. Once pizza is cooked right before serving sprinkle some chopped basil and blackberry sauce on top.  And here you are….
