Chick Food

A few weeks ago I hosted a Pampered Chef show and we made this Three-Cheese Garden Pizza. It was so yummy, I ordered the Large Bar Pan because I'm convinced that it was the secret to the crispy thin crust that I love so much.

My pan got here a couple days ago, so today I made this pizza for lunch. Just for me.

Then Peanut Head came home early and helped himself. Except he dissed my pizza and picked off all the mushrooms. And the zucchini. But he left the cheese on. Basically he was eating cheese bread with a few tomatoes and onions. Seriously, what a waste of dang good chick food.

We all know it's hard to please everyone all the time, but with pizza it's doable because you can just divide the pizza up and let each person have their own section with their favorite toppings.

Although that's not what I did today.

You can do it though. Here are the ingredients you start with:

1 pkg. 13.8 oz. refrigerated pizza crust, 1 T olive oil, 2 garlic cloves, 1 C shredded cheddar cheese, 1 C shredded mozzarella cheese, and 1/4 C grated Parmesan cheese.

I sprayed the stoneware pan with cooking spray, plopped the dough in, unrolled it, and then continued spreading it around the pan with the Baker's Roller. Then I brushed my garlic olive oil on top, so it looked like this.

This was the first time I've ever used the refrigerated pizza crust, and I have to say, I love it. It's so convenient and it makes a great thin crust pizza.

After baking the crust for 7 minutes, I put my toppings on and baked it for another 15 minutes, and it came out looking like this:

You must try it. It's a cinch to make.

Here's the recipe card. Enjoy!


  1. I LOVE my bar pan. I use it almost every night. It is so well-seasoned that it's black! I have also tried this pizza and it is the best way I have found to get veggies in my kids:-)

  2. Why did I have to look at this post when I'm hungry??? looks so yummy....I'll be right over.


  3. OMG, I am gonna HAVE to get one of those pans! I have 3 (count them) of the circle pizza stones (had one more but it got dropped one too many times) and love them, but that one has a RIM. Do you KNOW how many things I could use that for?????

  4. Thanks for the recipe card! In fact, thanks for ALL your recipe cards! I LOVE your recipe cards! You are so dang creative! :)

  5. it looks so good.

    What program do you use to make your recipe cards?

  6. Ter, I use the Creative Memories StoryBook Creator Plus digital scrapbooking software. I have a link to it on my left side bar. :)

  7. Yummo! One of these days, by selling Avon, I will be able to afford to buy something PamperedChef!

    Looks delish! And your recipe card is adorable, as always!


  8. Mmmmm, looks yummy. I wouldn't have picked any of that off!!

  9. This pizza looks amazing - I love pizza but my husband only likes it if we order it when we are out for a meal. He thinks the ones that you get frozen just don't do it (and I tend to agree!) I must keep my eye out for the Pampered Chef here in Northern Ireland!

    Love visiting with you (even though I don't comment very often!) It is such a great place to pick up ideas!


  10. My favorite chick pizza is spinach and feta. Curtis won't touch it!

    Is your Pampered Chef party still open? Let me know or the next time you have one, let me know then. I need a few things and I would rather someone get credit for it!

  11. Love my pizza stone! It's the most fav thing for me to cook with in this house!

  12. There goes my hips expanding like the Goodyear Blimp....
