Uncommon Ramen BBQ Chicken Pizza Bake

Uncommon Ramen BBQ Chicken Pizza Bake created by Izy Hossack watch icons / play

When time is tight and the budget is tighter, this quick and easy pizza bake is a family pleasing lifesaver. Made for the Dining On A Dollar Contest! Revised after the contest: After your wonderful feedback I have revised this recipe so the crust bakes better. Please make sure to drain the noodles very very well so that they are very dry when preparing the crust to ensure the middle cooks as well as the edges. This makes more of a pan type pizza bake you eat with a fork rather than a 'pizza'.

ingredients

directions

  • Directions:

  • Remove ramen noodles from their packages and cook in boiling water until just al dente (1-2 minutes). Save the flavour packets for another use.
  • In a large bowl, beat the egg and parmesan cheese.
  • Drain the noodles very well and add to the large bowl, mixing quickly to combine.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Heat a 12-inch cast-iron skillet over a medium heat until hot. Once hot, add the vegetable oil and tilt the pan to coat the base and sides with it. Add the noodles to the skillet, using a fork to help you spread them out to cover the base in an even layer. Press down using a metal spatula to compact it down. Cook over a medium-low heat until golden and slightly crisp underneath.
  • Spread the BBQ sauce over the noodles, scatter on the chicken and mozzarella. Top with the onions and mandarin segments. Add any of the optional toppings now too.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese has melted and is starting to brown.
  • Remove from the oven and use a metal spatula to help loosen the pizza from the skillet. Slide out into a cutting board, cut into wedges and serve.
  • Note: you can also make two 9-inch pizzas from this recipe. The crust will be slightly thinner. Just use a 9-inch skillet instead of a 12-inch and only use half the cooked noodle mixture for each pizza base.
  • Note: The 1/2 cup of milk in the crust has been removed from the recipe to help ensure a crisp crust throughout. Additionally, if you don’t have a cast-iron skillet, you can baked this on a cookie sheet, but the crust will not be as crisp.

    Making this in a cast iron skillet helped the base get nice and crispy which meant it held together really well. The ‘pizza’ was incredibly quick to assemble since there’s no yeast involved, which I loved. If you don’t like fruit on your pizza, feel free to leave the mandarin oranges off - it’d be great without too. I could see using the ramen base to make loads of different pizza variations in the future - great idea!
