I decided that the next pizza that I make would be a California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) inspired. My favorite pizzas are no longer available on their new menu so it is time to make it at home anyway!! I couldn't decide between my favorite Garlic Chicken Pizza and my friend Tracey's favorite Rosemary Chicken Potato Pizza. I looked around the freezer and pantry to figure out what I had and I found some rosemary chicken that was taken from a roast chicken that I made a little while ago. I also had fresh rosemary and garlic so I decided to mix the flavors.
I used my homemade pizza crust which is my new favorite. If you don't make your own, you can buy the bag of dough from Trader Joe's or use a Pillsbury Pizza Crust. Then I melted butter on the stove top and grated the garlic into the skillet. I added two sprigs of rosemary to flavor the butter mixture. I added the rosemary chicken since it was still frozen and heated the whole pan of toppings. The chicken soaked up a lot of the butter so I did add a little more. I had a helper in the kitchen so I didn't get to take a picture of the process because I was too busy keeping his hands away from the pan.
Do you want a slice??? It was super good!!! If you want to be more authentic to the CPK recipe, they also had onions but I am not an onion fan. I didn't have any potatoes and I wasn't sure if they had to be cooked in the pan first or put in raw so it seemed like too much of a gamble.
Feel free to customize the pizza to your family. It is super easy to make a pizza with whatever you have around the house and not always end up with a pepperoni pizza with red sauce :) Here is hoping you enjoy the recipe and try it for your family!!
