The plan was to eat leftover grilled chicken for dinner, but in the back of my mind, I knew my husband wasn’t so enthused about this. Fortunately for us, during an impromptu stroll through Walmart, I discovered uncooked pizza dough in their bakery section (I must admit the $.88 price intrigued me to pick up the packaged blob and toss it in the cart). My wheels started turning on how to use it- I knew I had that dreaded leftover chicken, mozzarella cheese, and tomatoes at home, along with a cabinet full of spices and goodies, so I grabbed a red onion and the rest was history…
This recipe was great because it gave me a chance to play with my Misto cans filled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar! (If you don’t know what a misto can is, check them out here)

Obviously, you can change the toppings to fit your taste buds and use what you have in a pinch, but this pizza tasted pretty fantastic as is!
Prep Time = 25 minutes
Cook Time = 20 minutes
- Store bought pizza dough
- ¼ Red Onion, sliced
- ½ Tomato, diced
- 8 oz cooked Chicken breast, diced
- Olive Oil
- Balsamic Vinegar
- Garlic Powder
- Grated Parmesan Cheese
- Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees (or to whatever temperature your dough calls for).
- Heat about a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan over medium high heat and saute red onion until caramelized (somewhere between 7-10 minutes). Set onions aside for a moment.
- Roll out dough to your desired shape and thickness-I did mine long because that’s what was easiest and fit best on to my baking sheet. I rolled it out right on my SilPat, but you can do it on a clean and lightly floured counter top.
- Transfer dough to a baking sheet (lightly greased if you do not have a SilPat)
- Lightly coat the dough with olive oil. Season with oregano, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese.
- Evenly spread chicken, tomato, and onion over dough. Top with balsamic vinegar, mozzarella cheese, and a little more parmesan for good measure.
- Bake until dough is completely cooked through (time can vary depending on brand/type of dough used). After 20 minutes, my dough was done and the cheese was nicely melted.
- Slice and serve! We enjoyed ours with the Gia Russa Balsamic Glaze
