Luckily I remembered to take the picture before the rest got eaten... lol.

We usually get this pizza from Papa Johns, but lately they never have the ingredients to make it. (What kind of pizza place runs out of tomatoes?!?!?) So, in rebellion of the unprepared pizza shop, we've decided to make our own. This was the first experiment.

Whenever I cook chicken on the stove, it always comes out really dry. So this time I sorta boiled it- but get this- in lemonade. It was really good, I don't remember where I got the idea, but I saw it in a recipe once. So anyways, I added some kosher salt and italian seasonings, don't ask how much, I just wing it, probably about 1/2 tsp italian seas. and 1 tsp kosher salt for 1 chicken breast.
While I was cooking that, I defrosted (cooked?) the spinach in boiling water. I didn't use much of the spinach, probably 1/3- 1/4 of a cup, and we'll use less next time. I strained the spinach, and mixed it with some alfredo sauce. I used classico creamy alfredo, and I think I'm going to make it from scratch next time, it didn't taste like good alfredo sauce.
So I thinly spread the alfredo spinach mixture on the precooked Boboli pizza crust, and put a generous helping of mozzeralla cheese over that. Then I cut up a tomato into slices, and put that on the pizza too. Then the chicken, drained out of the lemonade, put on decoratively. Into the oven at 375 (although the crust said 450, I thought that was a bit high for my old-usually-burns-stuff oven. 8-9 minutes later and it was really really good. Even though it will be better when I use a better alfredo sauce next time.

Anyways, this was good and you should try it!

This looks soooo good. I never would have thought to boil chicken in lemonade, i'll have to try it!

Dear Craftster Friends,
Three years ago, I was much younger and dumber and I flaked on a few swaps. I am back and I promise to make it up to everyone I hurt. I had been flaked on a couple of times, and I know how cra**y it feels. I am really sorry.
