Chicken Marsala Pizza

I love chicken marsala. It's really a comfort food for me. Warm, toasty, and usually served with mashed potatoes. Yummmm.

When I saw this recipe, I knew I had to make it. Putting something so delicious on a pizza-who would've thought? It definitely didn't disappoint and I'll be making it again!

I used the whole wheat pizza dough recipe I've used in the past. You can certainly use another premade crust as you desire.


Chicken Marsala Pizza-adapted from Pillsbury
Total Time: 1 hour
Serves 8

  • 1 pizza crust
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 pound chicken breast, diced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup Marsala wine
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a pizza stone with cooking spray. Place pizza dough on stone and bake for 11 to 14 minutes or until golden brown.

Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, cook about 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until lightly browned. Set aside.

Using the same skillet, add remaining olive oil, butter, onion and mushrooms, stirring frequently for about 7 minutes or until tender. Stir in garlic and cook for one more minute. Stir in wine, cook for 4-5 minutes or until wine is reduced be half. Add heavy whipping cream, parsley, salt, pepper and chicken. Reduce heat, simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occassionally, until thickened.

Sprinkle the pizza crust with 3/4 cup of the mozzarella cheese. Spoon chicken mixture over cheese, then top with remaining cheeses. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.
