    WaterMelon's Note:

    Use your favorite pizza dough or store-bought crust (I won't tell..). This is easy and quick - perfect for a simple week night dinner. Sauce and topping are enough for a 12" pizza.

      Wow, this was really good! I used 3/4 tsp of crushed red pepper, but next time I will only use 1/4 tsp - it burned so bad we were chugging water the whole time! But other than that, the sauce had a good flavor, and we really enjoyed the chicken in it. Thanks!

      I am conflicted in rating this recipe. It has quite a taste but I had some problems making it. First, the ingredient list does not include pizza dough/crust and this recipe cannot be made without it. I check recipe ingredient lists to ensure I have everything and nearly found myself making a pizza without a crust. Second, I put on a lot of chicken and red pepper (nearly covering a 12" pizza) but still had lots left over, including about 1/2 the small red pepper. Third, there is no mention of the temperature at which to bake the pizza. I guessed and it worked. DH did love this as it had quite a kick and I only used 1/2 tsp of the red pepper flakes. I put it back in the oven for a few seconds after putting on the parmesan cheese. I also cooked the chicken ahead of time. Overall, a tasty, easy recipe.
