Chicken Arugula pizza

chicken arugula pizza

This chicken arugula pizza is one of those recipes that is soooo easy I feel somewhat ridiculous acting as if it is a recipe. I mean, really. But at the same time, I know that I order my groceries delivered, use meal kits, and pick up packaged ingredients simply because I don’t want to think ONE MORE TIME. Not once.

I’ve done the thinking for you on this one and all you need to do is grab ingredients. In my case, just pop open my computer and it to my grocery delivery list ( I know, I’m sooo pathetic!). This recipe uses pre-made ingredients OR you can make any one of the ingredients yourself.

  • Do you want to make your own sauce? First, let me recommend the age-old trick of tomato paste and Italian seasoning (truly will change your world!). We have a couple of those too.

  • I can’t make chicken. But I CAN say that grabbing a rotisserie chicken is one of my favorite time-savers. As well, the already cooked and cut chicken you can get in the freezer section.
  • Lastly, let’s say your family isn’t arugula eaters for whatever reason. You can use spinach as a good substitute.

There is absolutely zero shame in using pre-made ingredients and already prepared crusts if it gets supper on the table faster. A happy family that is well-fed is the goal, do what you need to to get there. For real! Although, I’m a bit of a believer in every child having made homemade pizza dough at least once in their life. Get those kids in the kitchen whenever you can! If this chicken arugula pizza helps you, yay!
