What better way to use up your abundance of apples? Pizza! What? Try it, you might like it!!
Chicken Waldorf Pizza with Blue Cheese and Balsamic Drizzle
4- 10" tortillas (or other prepared pizza crust/pita/flatbread)
Olive oil spray
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped apples
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
1 cup cooked and shredded boneless skinless chicken breast
2 Tbsp finely chopped walnuts
Salt and fresh ground black pepper
3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place tortillas or crusts onto baking sheets. Spray each lightly with olive oil, then top each with 2 Tbsp mozzarella cheese, 1 Tbsp celery, 2 Tbsp apples, 1 Tbsp blue cheese, 1/4 cup shredded chicken, and 1/2 Tbsp walnuts. Sprinkle each with salt and pepper.
Place sheets into the oven and bake for 5 minutes, then transfer crusts directly to the rack and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or crusts are crispy and cheese has melted.
While pizzas cook, heat balsamic vinegar in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a low boil, stirring continuously for 15 minutes, or until thickened to maple syrup consistency.
Drizzle each cooked pizza with balsamic syrup. Cut into quarters and serve.
