Broccoli Chicken Pizza and BBQ Chicken Pizza with Udi's Gluten Free Pizza Crust

Last week on our cruise on the Disney Fantasy, I enjoyed a Margherita pizza and herb flatbread made with Udi's gluten free pizza crust.

On Sunday night, I made a Palo-inspired herb bread with Udi's gluten free pizza crust to go with the pasta dish I was making for dinner.  You can view the recipe here.

Tonight, I made a broccoli chicken pizza inspired by a pasta dish I used to eat at a restaurant near our house in Pittsburgh.  I spread extra virgin olive oil on my defrosted pizza crust before adding minced garlic and chopped fresh basil.

 I cut chicken breast from a Costco rotisserie chicken into small cubes, and spread it around the pizza crust along with pieces of broccoli, that were from a package of steam in the bag broccoli that I cooked for two minutes instead of three.  I sprinkled the pizza with a little bit of kosher salt before adding a shaved Italian cheese blend of Parmesan, Romano, and Asiago, that I buy at The Fresh Market.

I preheated my oven to 375 degrees, then baked the pizza for 7 minutes, directly on an oven rack in the center of the oven.  I cut my broccoli chicken pizza with my kitchen shears when it was done cooking, and served it right away, while it was still hot.  I ate the whole thing by myself, and loved every bite.

When I make broccoli chicken pizza for myself, I make BBQ chicken pizza for my daughters.  I start by rubbing a little olive oil and minced garlic on one side of a defrosted Udi's pizza crust.  I then add gluten free barbeque sauce, and rotisserie chicken that I have cut into small pieces and coated in barbeque sauce.  For cheese, I use Organic Valley finely shredded mild cheddar cheese, and a sprinkle of Romano.  I cook the pizza for 7 minutes in a 375 degree oven.  My daughters have told me that this BBQ chicken pizza is their favorite pizza, and my husband loves it too.  

I purchase Udi's pizza crusts at Whole Foods and the Baldwin Park Publix.  

What are your favorite toppings to put on an Udi's gluten free pizza crust?
