"A simple pizza using an exotic mixture of chicken, cranberry and brie." — GILLIE

skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 (12 inch)
prepared pizza crust
1 1/2 cups
Brie cheese, chopped
shredded mozzarella cheese
With some modifications this is 5 stars, I started with a pre made pizza crust then melted 2 tbsp of butter with 1/4 of a tsp of garlic and spread it on the crust then topped with brie then I used dried cherries, because I live in the Cherry Capital of The World, then the rest of the ingredients. OH MY GOODNESS this is the best pizza I have ever had.
This was really easy to make and pretty tasty. The flavor of the brie kind of got lost, I'd probably add more and reduce the amount of cranberry sauce next time, just so it was more noticable.
I don't like cranberries in general - nevertheless, this sounded good, so I made - and loved it. I expected this to taste good, but not as good as I found it to be. I made a few modifications that helped with the soggy/gooey problems.
I tried cream brie - a bit difficult to 'chop' but can be heated slightly and then spread/mashed in with the cranberries - and to avoid the soggy crust issue, I used whole-berry cranberry sauce, draining the watery liquid off first. A little fresh ground pepper and some red wine vinegar with the chicken added a nice touch to the overall flavor.
I will definately be making this again. Thanks!
Wonderful, easy recipe. I pre-bake the pizza crust for 10 min or so before putting the cranberries and other toppings on and have no problem with soggy crust. This will be a "often used" favorite.
This was a rich and delicious recipe, but I had a feeling the chicken would need some more oomph. I wouldn't have liked it as much without using rosemary and thyme while browning the meat. I only ate one piece because it was so rich. My husband said that small servings of it would make a great finger food at a cocktail party. I agree.
Good recipe Gill. However, I am Sicilian and like it spicy. So I browned bite size pieces of chicken breast in Rosemary & Thyme (4 spice bottle capfulls of each) with a little olive oil and drained. I also used brie on bottom of Boboli crust, then chicken, then dried cranberries, topped with mozz cheese and more dried cranberries. Took to office pot luck and yummers was the opinion. Only one slice remained and yours truly ate it for dinner that night.
I decided to try something new for my girlfriend who is vegetarian. It was a bit gooey at first but the flavor is great! Leftovers warm up terrifically.
This was an unusual combination of ingredients that turned out good. I had a friend over who also liked it.
