BBQ Chicken Pizza

I can honestly say my favorite food is pizza, I LOVE IT! 

BBQ Chicken Pizza has become one of my staple recipes to make at home. It is simple yet delicious. The hubby really loves this one!

You can use a store bought dough if you are short on time, but making homemade pizza dough at home is simple!

BBQ Chicken Pizza

2 chicken breasts, chopped 
1/4-3/4 cup of favorite BBQ sauce (it's your preference to how much sauce you like on your pizza)
1 small onion, diced
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup of shredded pizza blend of cheese (it's up to you, make it more cheesy if you want!)
Pizza dough

Prep toppings:

Preheat over to 400 degrees.

Preheat a non-stick skillet of medium high heat. Add in your chopped chicken breasts and season with salt and pepper. Brown chicken on all sides, after you flip the chicken once, add in your diced onion. Cook until chicken is cooked through and onions are softened.

For a thinner crust use a cookie sheet and for a thicker crust use a pizza pan. Spread the pizza dough out on a greased pan. 

Now is when you will spread the BBQ sauce on the pizza dough. I like sauce in every bite, but not to be overwhelming, so I will usually use between 1/3 cup-1/2 cup. Make sure to leave a crust edge. 

Distribute the chicken and onions mixture over the pizza dough. 

Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese next and then add your pizza blend of cheese. 

Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, depending on your oven.

Pizza Dough Recipe

2 3/4- 3 cups of all purpose flour
1 package of dry yeast
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of warm water
2 tablespoons of oil

In a large mixing bowl combine 1 ¼ cups of the flour, the yeast and salt; add warm water and oil. 

Beat with an electric mixer with dough hook attachment on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping the bowl constantly. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Using a wooden spoon, stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough remaining flour to make moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6 to 8 minutes total). 

Cover and let rise for 10 minutes.

This dough is great for cal-zones. This recipe makes enough for two pizzas. This dough freezes great, so if you aren't making two, just pop it in a plastic bag and freeze if for next time! Just put it in the fridge the day before you want to use it.

I hope you enjoy!

Until next time,

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!

I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:

Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Las Vegas Once Again!

The Hubby and I just made our 8th trip to Las Vegas! Our favorite place to vacation. Baby Girl got to stay with her Mimi and Pappy while we were gone.

We had a great trip filled with food, fun, and plenty of gambling. We didn't hit it big, but it was a great vacation of spending quality time with the Hubby.

We stayed 3 nights at the Rio. The Rio is just off the Strip. We like staying here because it's not near as busy as being on the Strip. 

The Rio recently added a KISS themed putt-putt golf course. We played and it was fun, but I am horrible! 

September is a huge month for us. We both had big birthdays (3-0... let's not talk about that) and our anniversary. So we both decided instead of buying gifts we would do something fun in Vegas. We decided to see a show and we picked Absinthe. 

It is SO worth the money. If you get offended by ANYTHING, please do not see it. It is acrobatics mixed with crude comedy. We had a great time! We saw this show when it first opened back in 2011 …

Spring Break in Las Vegas

Once again we traveled to our favorite place.... LAS VEGAS! We had four days packed with fun. The weather was great while we were there. In Indiana, however, it was terrible, so a good week to miss!

By now everyone should know we are planners and love to get good deals. Well Las Vegas is a town of deals if you look close enough. Before we went we were able to snag some items from our MyVegas game on Facebook. We had two FREE night helicopter tours over the strip, a complimentary picture with the helicopter, two FREE show tickets to KA at MGM, two FREE show tickets to The Beatles LOVE at the Mirage, and two 2-for-1 Buffet tickets to the Mirage buffet. All those items together were valued at over $600. We paid $0 for them. I also got some items off Groupon for super cheap!

So before we even left we had planned out what nights we were doing what and so on. 
We arrived in Las Vegas on April 1st and headed directly to our hotel. This was our first time at Harrah's. We loved our location. …
