September 26, 2013 – Why cook for only one night when one great dish can be turned into two nights of dinner? Our Test Kitchen chefs came up with the idea to take leftovers from our Roasted Chicken with Red Wine Sauce to create a whole new dish, the Bistro Chicken Pizza. Watch this quick video with food stylist Janice Stahl as she demonstrates this unique take on two dinners from one.
Original Recipe: Roasted Chicken with Red Wine Sauce
Bonus Meal: Bistro Chicken Pizza
Total time: 20 minutes
1/2 recipe leftover Roasted Chicken with Red Wine Sauce
8 oz. Happy Farms Whipped Cream Cheese
2 – 24 oz. packages of Mama Cozzi 2-Pack Thin Pizza Crusts (or make your own dough from scratch)
2 tbsp. Carlini Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 – 8 oz. packages of Happy Farms Deli Sliced Mozzarella Cheese
8 oz. Specially Selected Havarti Cheese, thinly sliced
Heat grill to medium heat. Preheat oven to 400°.
Separate chicken and potatoes from leftovers. Strain red wine sauce and reserve. Dice chicken and potatoes, combine with spinach mixture.
In a medium bowl, whisk red wine sauce and whipped cream cheese until smooth.
Brush pizza crusts with extra virgin olive oil. Mark first side of pizza crust on grill for 30 seconds and rotate. Cook for 30 seconds again to create a crosshatch pattern.
Repeat on other side. Remove pizza crusts from grill and place each crust on a pizza pan.
Spread half of the red wine sauce mixture on each pizza crust. Divide the chicken, potato and spinach mixture among the four pizza crusts.
Arrange mozzarella and Havarti cheese evenly on each pizza, alternating flavors.
Bake pizzas until cheese melts, about 8 minutes.

ALDI Test Kitchen Tip: Get a super crispy crust by baking your pizza on a pizza stone. These handy cooking tools are made from a porous stone, which helps eliminate moisture from the pizza crust and prevents them from getting soggy.
