Tropical Pizza

Today we'll be eating leftovers of yesterday's delicious Fresh Asian Noodle Salad for dinner, so we decided to try a new recipe for lunch.

We've always enjoyed making our own pizzas, but we've just started to get a little more creative and adventurous with sauces and topping combinations.

The idea for this recipe came from an issue of Family Circle magazine. We started out with our standard whole wheat crust recipe.

Whole Wheat Honey Pizza Dough

1 pkg or 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 tsp salt (we use finely ground sea salt)
1 Tbsp honey

1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Dissolve yeast in water for 10 minutes.
3. Meanwhile combine flour, wheat germ, and salt.
4. Make a well in the middle and add honey and yeast mixture.
5. Stir well to combine.
6. Oil dough and bowl; cover and rise in warm place for about 10 minutes.
7. Roll dough on an oiled pan. Poke the surface of the crust with a fork and let rest for 5 minutes.
8. Prebake 15 minutes. Remove from oven and add toppings.

Tropical Chicken & Veggie Pizza

1 Prebaked pizza crust
1 cup + 4 Tbsp pineapple mango chipotle salsa (or another variety of fruity salsa)
1 cup shredded Colby & Monterey Jack cheese mixture
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 - 1 chicken breast, basted with salsa, grilled or broiled, sliced or cubed
1/3 green pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
1/3 red pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
1/4 small onion, peeled and thinly sliced

1. Heat oven to 350°.
2. Spread 1 cup of salsa over the crust.
3. Sprinkle the cheeses over the salsa.
4. Scatter chicken, peppers, and onion over the top.
5. Bake until heated through and cheese is melted. (As you can tell from the photos, I left the pizza in about 2 minutes too long.) Allow to cool slightly. Cut into 8 slices.

We'd love some new ideas for creating delicious pizzas. What pizza combinations does your family like?

Also, be sure to check out the Slew of Summer Salads Blog Carnival for lots of fresh salad ideas. We'd love for you to share your favorite and link to the carnival.

That looks yummy! Our favorite combo is barbeque sauce, cheddar, and cooked chicken. Not very exciting, but oh so tasty :)

You have some great recipes out there today! I just commented on you Asian Noodle Salad and now here you are using the leftovers! We've started grilling flatbread and then adding toppings - just a variation on grilling the dough with the toppings. Love the flavor combinations!

That crust recipe looks good and what a good idea to use salsa for the sauce.
