Chicken Pizza from Trisha Yearwood
Another great recipe from her cookbook, I wish I had time to sit and chat with you guys but I'm running late for an appointment, so none of my quirky comments (roll my eyes) I'm such a dork.
Anyway, here you go, oh and btw, I didn't use premade pizza crust, I used my own homemade crust.

2 13.8-ounce cans premade pizza crust dough
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (about 8 ounces)
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (about 8 ounces)
1 bell pepper, cored, seeded, and cut into strips
1 red onion, sliced vertically
3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, grilled and diced
6 slices bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbled
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Roll the pizza dough out and fit onto two 15-inch pizza pans. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of garlic on each pizza crust, followed by ½ cup each of the mozzarella cheese and ½ of the Cheddar cheese. Scatter half of the bell pepper, sliced onion, chicken, and bacon on top of the cheeses. Sprinkle another ½ mozzarella cheese and ½ cup Cheddar cheese over each pizza and drizzle each pizza with 1 tablespoon more of olive oil.
Bake the pizzas for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the crusts are lightly browned. Slice each pizza into 8 pieces.
Pizza doesn’t have to be round! I make this pizza dough into a rectangle and cut it into squares to serve.
