#3839 - Puff Pastry Chicken Pizza

(by Shirley McNevich)

1 sheet frozen puff pastry dough (thawed according to package directions)
garlic powder
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
grated Parmesan cheese
pesto sauce OR your favorite pasta sauce
1 to 1 1/2 cups cooked/diced chicken breasts
olive oil

Place a single sheet of thawed puff pastry dough on to a greased cookie sheet. Use your fingers to pinch closed any small holes in the seams of the dough. Use the tines of a fork to prick the dough all over (including the edges) so that the dough won't puff as much during baking. Spread a layer of pesto sauce OR pasta sauce over the dough. In a bowl add the diced cooked chicken and a little olive oil--toss to coat. Spread the chicken pieces evenly over the sauce. Sprinkle garlic powder, oregano, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese over the chicken pieces. Spread the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the top. Bake at 400 degrees 15-24 minutes until cheese is melted and starting to brown. Remove from oven--cool slightly, then slice to serve.
