Chicken Arrabiata Pizza

Thinking of a new dish to serve my family for snacks has always been a struggle for me because as a stay-at-home-Mom (SAHM), I would always want to give the best for the whole family. For me snacking is also an important meal of the day as it fuels us up after the tiring routines from morning till noon. So whenever I would prepare something for snacks, I would always think of something "Masarap, Masustansya at Kayang-kaya."

Everybody loves pizza, kids and even kids-at-heart enjoy it, but I don't think the usual pizza toppings like hotdogs, sausages and ham, are nutritious enough. So I looked up for something delicious and nutritious in the pantry, that I can incorporate to my new pizza recipe. This Sexy Chix in Arrabiata sauce caught my attention. Arrabiata in Italian is a spicy sauce for pasta made from garlic, tomatoes and red chili peppers cooked in olive oil. Perfetto! This Sexy Chix in Arrabiata sauce is indeed perfect for my pizza!

Let's start preparing the ingredients for my Chicken Arrabiata pizza:



 

1 can Sexy Chix shredded chicken Arrabiata
4 pcs small pizza crust
1/2 cup tomato paste
2 large red tomatoes
2 large bell peppers, 1 green and 1 red
1 large white onion
1 small can mushrooms
1 small can pineapple tidbits
1 box Magnolia Cheezee

Optional:
              dried oregano - if you want to add more Italian taste to the pizza

Here's how:

1. Slice tomatoes, bell peppers and onions as desired. Set aside.


2. In a pizza crust, spread 1 tablespoon tomato paste and 2 tablespoons Sexy Chix ( you may add more tomato paste & Sexy Chix if you want), top with tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, pineapple, dried oregano (optional) and grated Cheezee. Why I used Magnolia Cheezee instead of easy-to-melt cheese? It's a lot cheaper but it melts nicely.

3. Pre-heat oven to 210 degrees Celsius. Bake pizza for 10 minutes. If you have bigger oven, cook them simultaneously, to save time and effort.


4. Serve while hot. 



 

This dish is very easy to prepare and cook. In just 30 mins, you already have a delicious and nutritious snacks for the whole family. I spent P200.00 for all the ingredients, but I didn't used up everything. Only 1/3 of the cheese was used; 1/2 can of mushroom and 1 cup of tomato paste, were left. 

Pizza is very enjoyable to cook. It is effortless, you don't have to have the right amount of ingredients to make a delicious one. You can always DIY a pizza, personalize it according to your preferences.

We've had 16 slices of pizzas, good for 5 to 7 persons. Approximately you'll spend P25.00 for each person.
And guess, who is the most excited to try my new dish? It's my loving Bunso...
