Here is a brilliant idea that I came up with recently for dinner. I wanted a simple dinner one night with no difficulty involved, so I pulled out a pillsbury weiner roll out of the fridge and thought pizza! I took one chicken breast out of the fridge and cut it into cubes, and sauteed it with shallots, garlic, and artichoke hearts. Then I mixed it together with flavourful tomato sauce, covered it with cheese and I ended up with a quick individual style rustic pizza. Give this a try at your next party!

Makes 6

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Baking time: 15 minutes


  • pillsbury weiner rolls (6 rolls)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large chicken breasts, cut into small cubes
  • coarse salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 shallot, sliced thin
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and cut into matchsticks
  • 1 can (28 oz.) quartered artichoke hearts, in water (drained)
  • 3/4 cup of tomato sauce (your favourite)
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat the oven to 375 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Take the pillsbury weiner rolls out and lay each one flat onto the baking sheet, and set it aside for now. Heat oil in a heavy bottom skillet, on medium high heat, and add in the chicken, salt, pepper, shallot, garlic and carrot. Saute until the chicken has cooked through; then add in the quartered artichoke hearts. Cook for 1 minute, then go ahead and add in the tomato sauce and dried oregano. Once everything has cooked through, start to spoon on the chicken mixture onto each pillsbury weiner roll, sprinkle mozzarella cheese, then bake it in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom. Serve immediately.
