Sweet & Spicy Chinese Chicken Pizza / Giveaway

Hi Everyone!

I am so excited for the big game this weekend!  Why because Denver is going to kick butt and because it’s football food day!!!  I just love finger food, appetizers and anything that is spicy!!  Super Bowl Sunday is the day where you can go out splurge, well not too much, but you must enjoy little bites of all that good food!  I love it!!!  Speaking of finger food, I have a dish that you can eat with your hands.  Loving this!  Let me introduce to you my Sweet & Spicy Chinese Chicken Pizza.  Oh yah!!
Sweet & Spicy Chinese Chicken Pizza #AppleButterSpin
Normally I make pizza the traditional way, cheese and pepperoni for Hubby and veggie pizza with very little cheese for me, but today I changed that, today we are going Chinese. Sounds kind of odd, a Chinese pizza, but oh my gosh, believe me it is fantastic! The pizza is sweet, savory and spicy all in one. Not sure what your taste buds are craving? Well this should satisfy most cravings.

The pizza is made with store-bought pizza dough and then topped with the most delicious finger licking sauce. The sauce is made with Musselman’s Apple Butter, chili paste, soy sauce and minced garlic. This gives the pizza the sweet and spicy flavor. The combination together is out of this world. I topped the pizza with mozzarella cheese, sweet bell pepper, broccoli, shredded carrots, chicken and scallions. I basically took one of my favorite salads and made it on top of a pizza. But, one of my favorite parts is the drizzle of Sriracha Hot Sauce on top. I always add Rooster Sauce to my Chinese food! Yum!!

When making my pizza I used this pretty cool pizza stone. It’s made by WiltonArmetale, it’s made with Armetale metal which is a unique, non-toxic aluminum-based alloy, making it ideal for cooking and entertaining. It can be placed on the grill and in the oven. It keeps food hot longer or cold longer. It made my pizza cook perfectly even. Here’s my pizza before I put it in the oven.

Comment:   I’ll have to show this recipe to my husband! He’s the pizza maker in our house, and this is truly an original recipe. I’ve never seen anything like it! Looks so tasty, and what a cool use of the apple butter!

I received the pizza stone and jar of Mussleman’s Apple Butter, but all opinions are my own.

  1. I have two favorites when it comes to Game Day food! Nothing better than delicious fried buffalo wings and creamy spinach dip. Love them!

  2. My favorite football food is cheese sticks, primarily because they are non-messy and can be eaten while still watching the game.

  3. Mine would have to be the delicious buffalo chicken dip. I do try to healthify it and use pretzles and veggies to dip!
