Chicken Mushroom Sage Pizza

Chicken Mushroom Sage Pizza

The fam and I are all about pizza right now. When the kids see the pizza dough out on the counter in the kitchen and I hear that familiar “YES!” I have to admit, it’s pretty satisfying.

Day after day, deciding on a dinner strategy can seem relentless and boring.  

But pizza! Pizza can solve a lot of those problems.  

You can literally put anything on them and they bring a whole new light to the same old ingredients…


Chicken Mushroom Sage Pizza

For this savory pizza, I used chicken, mushrooms, and fresh sage.  You could easily use leftover chicken from a previous night, or you can use frozen grilled chicken strips like I did this time…


Foster Farms Grilled Chicken Breast Strips

This is a great time saver! I used them straight out of the bag and right onto the pizza… still frozen!



I also used fresh mushrooms…



And leafy, fragrant sage.


Pizza dough

Like all of my pizzas, I like to use homemade dough. I usually will make a large batch (enough for five pizzas) and just freeze the extra dough for later use.  You can use store bought dough too… no worries!

Place the dough on a pizza stone or baking sheet.


Spread extra virgin olive oil over dough

And lightly brush with extra virgin olive oil.


Add mozzarella cheese

Dot with fresh mozzarella.


Add chicken pieces

Add the chicken pieces.


Sautee mushrooms

I previously sautéed the mushrooms in a bit of olive oil with salt and pepper.


Add sautéed mushrooms

And those went on next.


Top with sage

Lastly, I added fresh sage leaves to the top and dusted the entire pizza with shredded parmesan.


Bake for 12-15 minutes

Bake in a 450 degree oven for 12-15 minutes. Allow to rest a few minutes before slicing.

I sprinkled mine with a few more pieces of chopped fresh sage.

All three of the dominant flavors work well together making this definitely one of the more savory pizzas we have created. And since chicken, mushrooms, and sage are all available year-round in California, you can bet this will be on the rotation every few months.
