80--- Chicken Waldorf Pizza with Blue Cheese and Balsamic Drizzle

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
Serves 4

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.
