CHICKEN AMOROSA PIZZA


Pizza on the Big Green Egg is as close to brick oven pizza as you can get without the brick oven. This recipe features chicken breast and the wonderful sweet taste of Amorosa tomatoes and thin sliced Vidalia Onions to compliment the salty flavor of the green olives and cheese. Utilizing fresh but store bought ingredients you won’t have to slave over the stove preparing gravy but with NO LOSS OF FLAVOR OR ENJOYMENT.
