A pizza of a different color..

I know I’ve said it before, but this whole idea of putting beets in pizza dough is genius! Its so delcious, so different, so shockingly colorful – how can you go wrong?!

For New Year’s Eve Kyle and I decided to stay at home in our pjs and watch movies. I decided earlier in the day that I was going to create some sort of pizza I’d never had before.

A few weeks back while shopping at K3 Natural Foods, I picked up a bottle of marinade that was on clearance. Roasted blueberry and chipotle marinade to be exact. I covered a chicken breast in the marinade and baked it in the oven until it was firm to the touch. I let it rest while I made the dough and let that rise. I then prebaked the dough, let it cool and assembled my toppings.

This unique pizza was topped with the sliced baked chicken, some extra blueberry sauce, thinly sliced red onions, about 2 1/2 ounces cranberry cinnamon goat cheese, smoked salt and freshly cracked pepper. It baked in the oven for 20-30 minutes and was topped with fresh cilantro.

We devoured an entire pizza between the two of us.

How could we resist when it looked like this?

  1. You are so creative. All of the ingredients sound so interesting (especially that cinnamon goat cheese!) And in my mind, there is nothing better than making a pizza and watching a movie at home. I want to do this tomorrow night. Thank you for sharing, my dear. I hope you have a good Monday. Let the week begin!

    • Thanks Sara, Monet and Emily! I’m so glad you enjoyed the unique pizza idea! =) I’ll have to think of some more really different combinations to share.. I’m such a pizza lover!
