{My Recipes} 10 Minute Pizza & Easy Chicken Raspberry Salad

These "recipes" are so simple, they're almost not even recipes. But both of them turned out very tasty so I'd thought I'd drop 'em on the blog if you're like me one evening and only have 10 minutes to make dinner. It happens more often than I'd like!

For the pizza, I started off with store-bought pre-made crusts, but you could also use bagels, English muffins or just about anything else you'd like. I grabbed a jar of regular pasta sauce (cabernet marinara, yum!), shredded mozzarella, Boar's Head turkey pepperoni (they don't have preservatives in their meat), garlic salt and dried Italian seasonings.

I like extra sauce on my pizza so I slathered it on, then did a layer of cheese, sprinkled it lightly with both seasonings and topped it off with the pepperoni. I baked them at 450 degrees for 10 minutes.

The result was delicious! They were so good the husband raved about them and the babies even ate several bites apiece. (Please excuse the drab paper plate presentation. We're packing to move and dishes are in boxes!)

Earlier in the week, I had some leftover chicken strips from Chicken Express. We'd gotten a family meal for dinner one evening when my mom and step-dad were over—the husband got me totally addicted to Chicken Express years ago when we were dating! Anyway, I decided to make a fresh salad for lunch and threw together lettuce, the chopped chicken, fresh raspberries, raisins, low-fat feta cheese and my most favorite croutons and light Greek dressing ever. Like, I seriously don't make a salad without both of those ingredients!

Like I said, such a simple meal it's really not a recipe. But I always like seeing quick and easy bites that people come up with and it gives me ideas for how to use things I have on hand. Bon appetit!

P.S. Two recipe posts you may have missed: my white bean and chicken pitas and quick chicken tacos.


  1. 100% agree with you on the croutons! Do you like talapia? I have a super easy recipe for that. Add a side of veggies and you are good to go. Even my kids love it.

  2. Mini pizzas are a big hit with the Grandkids for lunch, they love putting on thier own toppings.
    Love salads for dinner on a hot/humid evening, I dont think I have seen Cardini's at our store, will have to see who possibly carries it here, and try it.
    Thanks for sharing:)


I love to hear from any readers out there, just keep it clean and friendly!
