Cholula Chicken Pizza

You might remember me telling you about receiving some Cholula hot sauce samples(**) recently - or you might not - either way, this week I will be featuring a couple recipes that use this delicious hot sauce.  The first one being this simple little beauty:  Cholula Chicken Pizza.  It's simple.. it's spicy... it's perfect for a weeknight meal.  And no worries if you don't want to grill this, you can easily throw it in the oven, it's completely up to you.  I also simplified this by using naan again, but feel free to use actual pizza dough.

- Serves 2 -
Printable Recipe 
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 Tablespoon plain Green yogurt
1 Tablespoon original Cholula hot sauce
3 naan flatbreads
1 yellow sweet pepper, chopped
12 cherry tomatoes, quartered
shredded mozzarella cheese (however much you want to us..I used between 1-2 cups)
For the pizza sauce -
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 Tablespoon tomato paste
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1/4 teaspoon each:  basil, fennel, and oregano
1/8 teaspoon each:  salt, cayenne pepper, granulated sugar, and allspice
1 Tablespoon original Cholula hot sauce

Mix together 1 tablespoon yogurt and 1 tablespoon Cholula until well combined.  Spread over both sides of the chicken.  Wrap in plastic and place in refrigerator for 2 hours.  Cook chicken in pan or on grill.  Cut or shred into small pieces; set aside.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium heat, add all the ingredients for the pizza sauce.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 8 minutes; stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees.  Place the naan over the fire and grill until golden brown on one side - about 3-5 minutes.  Carefully remove from grill.  Spread the sauce over the already grilled side of the naan.  Top with chicken, peppers, tomatoes, and finally the cheese (you can drizzle some more Cholula over the pizzas if you want at this time).  Place pizzas back on the grill and make sure to close the lid.  Grill another 4-5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.  If it's not yet melted and your naan is done, move the pizzas to indirect heat, shut the lid and continue to grill until cheese melts.  Carefully remove from grill.  Slice and enjoy!

Where has the tilapia tootsie gone? LOL Nice pizza idea. We could certainly do something like this in our oven.

I've never heard of this hot sauce before, but then I hadn't heard of Sriracha before reading your
We're having chicken pizza tonight. Guess ours will have to be without the cholula sauce. :-((
