I am always looking for ways to stretch our food budget. I stock up on shredded cheese when its on sale, use dried beans in lieu of canned, and am not afraid to make a meal entirely from scratch.
Homemade pizza is one of our favorite ways to help our grocery money go a bit further and it’s important to create new recipes so we don’t get stuck in a “food rut.” Normally, I make a buffalo chicken pizza, but tonight I decided to try this Chicken & Bacon Pizza complete with a homemade garlic cream sauce.
Combine yeast, sugar, and water. Let sit for 5 mins to activate yeast.
Add 2 cups flour and knead into a ball. (Hint: THIS gadget makes this step so much easier!)
Cover, let rise until doubled.
Season chicken breast with salt and pepper. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit, approximately 20-25 minutes. (Hint: If you haven’t thawed your chicken, you can toss it with a cup of water into your Instant Pot on manual pressure for 30 minutes!). Shred.
