Lemon Chicken Tortilla Pizza w/ Studio 5

I had the best time on Studio 5 with my niece Grace. She loves to cook and bake….. it’s genetic I swear. Anyway, memories were made and I will cherish this taping forever. To watch the segment, go here.

This was such a fun recipe to create. You know how I’m loving Tortilla Pizzas these days, and anything with lemon is my ultimate favorite!

Thanks Studio 5 for this great idea, a new recipe featuring LEMONS.

7 Tortillas (fresh is my favorite) 

1 lemon sliced 

2 tbsp sugar 

1 tube basil paste 

1 cup shredded chicken 

Italian cheese mix/ Monterrey Jack cheese Parmesan cheese 


Balsamic glaze 

Preheat your oven to 500° broil. Use an oven proof skillet, brown your tortilla in a little olive oil on one side, flip the tortilla over, while the tortilla is browning on the second side, top with basil paste, or pesto. Cheese, chicken, then dip your lemons and some sugar and put the lemons on top of the pizza. Don’t skip this step.

Place the skillet in the broiler for 1 to 3 minutes, watching closely.
Remove the skillet carefully, top the hot pizza with arugula, balsamic glaze, Parmesan cheese. Repeat.  

Thanks Grace for being my sidekick and sous chef in the kitchen today. I love you so much.

Grace…. on set with me for Studio 5!
