Garlic Chicken Skillet Pizza

Cooking, cooking, cooking…sometimes I just plain get tired of cooking. Now don’t get me wrong I LOVE to cook, but there are those days when you think what am I making today.  The family expects something sort of spectacular and your mind and body are wiped. Thankfully I have an aresenal of How to Make 10 Yummy Pizza Recipes Step by Step! This easy homemade pizza crusted Garlic Chicken Skillet Pizza will make your family sing!  

If you have been cooking for a long time, you may have noticed…there really is nothing new under the sun.  One thing I’ve learned that is super important to keeping motivated and creative when it comes to cooking is…just switch it up a recipe a tiny bit and you will have a whole new meal and your family will think you are amazing.

On this particular day, my kids were begging for pizza…again.  I wanted to make something thick but with a crispy crust…not doughy.  This Garlic Chicken Skillet Pizza worked perfectly and my family LOVED it.

After you have made your pizza dough press into an oven proof skillet. I love my heat resistant skillets because I can use them not only on the stove top, but also in the oven.

I love my non stick, but I know that many are partial to the good ol iron skillet too!

Mix together: Ranch Dressing, garlic and Johnny’s Garlic Spread Seasoning.  

Spread onto dough and add chicken.

Add Cheese

Cover and cook on medium for 5 min.  Check on the pizza.  The pizza should not be sticking so you could even slip a spatula under the pizza and see how dark it is. 

Dough should be golden brown.  (darker if you like) 

Check every 2 min.

This next step is optional and the only reason I did it, was to brown the cheese so that my pictures would be pretty Winking smile 

The cheese was thoroughly melted and dough was completely cooked.

I simply put the pan under the broiler for a couple minutes.

  5. I definitely have to try this! I am one of those partial to cast iron tho so I would do it in my iron pan. I never made pizza in the frying pan before but why not? Sounds easy enough!

    I might even have my kids make it, they keep telling me they want to make homemade pizza 🙂

    1. Hi Dawn! You should definitely make pizza with the kids! It’s super easy and oooh so deelish! I would use an iron skillet too except my husband has iron overload in his blood so we can’t cook in iron. Just make sure your skillet is good and seasoned so it doesn’t stick and oooh it will be SO delish! Thanks for stopping by!
