Easy BBQ Chicken Pizza ~ crispy flatbread crust topped with tangy BBQ sauce, bites of chicken, red onion, mozzarella, smoked gouda and cilantro. Bold, delicious smoky flavor in a simple, quick weeknight recipe. 

Nobody puts this BBQ Chicken Pizza in the corner. For fans of the movie Dirty Dancing, you know what I’m talking about. For the rest . . . you may think I’ve lost it.

Stay with me. This simple, any night pizza is loaded with layers of flavor starting with my favorite BBQ sauce, mozzarella and smoked Gouda cheese, red onion and cilantro and baked to gooey cheese, crisp crust perfection.

I’ve belonged to a book club for the last dozen years or so. We started out as (library) card-carrying, book-toting readers back when we had kids with curfews still living at home. The kids are all out on their own now but we still get together and though you’d think we have even more time now, somehow we don’t, so we now skip the book and somewhere along the way morphed into a Wine Club. The women in this club, my friends are each beautiful, strong, supportive and just happen to enjoy a glass of wine and really good food as much as I do, like this Caramelized Onion Goat Cheese Pizza

I love shopping at my local farmer’s market so I try to carve out time every weekend to go and my travel companion is always a large to-go mug of hazelnut flavored coffee. I walk to the far end of the market seeing what catches my eye, then slowly stroll back sipping my coffee and make my purchases. A couple of months ago, I tried my first morel mushroom and now I’m hooked ~ and I do mean hooked on them. Morels have a short season and it’s passed, but there are a lot of other wild mushrooms I’m wild about. This Mushroom Pizza has just a handful of ingredients, but is big on flavor thanks to the wild mushrooms.

Dorothy was right. There’s no place like home. We spent a really great month in Florida and even though we left sunshine and almost 80° to come home to snow on the ground and more predicted for today, there is still no better place to be. There’s something about starting your day off in your own bed and if the next part of your day involves a good breakfast, well it’s that much better. Best Breakfast Pizza is part breakfast, part lunch, fast enough to enjoy even on weekday mornings and every mouthful delicious.

I entered the world of food blogging a year ago this month pretty much via the Braille method considering how little I knew about blogging and as I have the attention span of a 2 year old, I’m not the only one surprised I’m still going strong. I researched topics like ‘How to Start a Blog’, but only through experience did I realize how inept my research actually was. In reality, starting a blog is not “easy”, “free” and does not happen in “three steps”. I told myself that it’s not so scary putting your words out into the World Wide Web ~ it IS scary.That being said, it’s well worth the ride, being the coolest gig I could ever imagine. Early posts are positive cringe-worthy ~ that’s not to say the later ones aren’t as well, though I like to think they’re improving. Months before Blog Research 101, I entered a nationwide soup recipe contest sponsored by Zoup! and was among the final 12 chosen(Unstuffed Cabbage Soup). In my mind, this validated that ~yes~ I can cook. But could I blog? I took a leap of faith. What I lacked in expertise, experience, computer and social media literacy and a host of other things I made up for in passion and enthusiasm, but most of all I have the best family support system anyone could ask for.
