Cheese. It should be in its own food category along with bacon. They just make everything better. Plain and simple. The question is how do you like your cheese? Cut into small chunks on top of a cracker? Thinly sliced to go with a nice glass of wine? Just by itself? Melted or broiled on a sandwich, taco or pizza? Alex, I’ll take all of the above for $600 please.
I can’t get enough cheese. That is why I was super excited to be working with BelGioioso cheese to bring some cheesy goodness your way. You can find a 2-pound pack of mild provolone that is already sliced for you at your LOCAL Costco or grocery store. Don’t think you will use that much cheese? It has two compartments so you only have to open 1-pound at a time.
Brilliant I tell you….. just brilliant.
BelGioioso cheese is made from Wisconsin milk and is aged for 60 days right here in the US! This company likes to focus on their quality and good flavor for all of their cheeses. Sliced cheese isn’t just for sandwiches anymore; make a lasagna, casserole, appetizer or pizza with this cheese.
Now what to do with my provolone cheese, should I make a burger or casserole? I recently just started to watch my calories, so I decided why not make single-serve cheesy chicken pesto pizzas. No fighting over the slices and everyone could enjoy their own personal meal. I even had some extra calories to consume, so I poured a nice glass of red wine to accompany my pizza.

Single serve cheesy chicken pesto pizza
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1/2 onion sliced
- 1 tablespoon white wine
- 2 6inch garlic and herb pizza crusts
- 2 teaspoons pesto
- 3 slices or 3 ounces mild provolone BelGioioso Cheese
- 1/3 cup shredded chicken
- 1/2 cup arugula
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook for 10 minutes. Pour in the wine and cook for an additional 10 minutes; stirring occasionally.
Spread 1 teaspoon of pesto onto each pizza crust. Tear the provolone using about 1 1/2 pieces for each pizza. Then top with caramelized onions and chicken.
Place pizza on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and top with arugula.
I used store bought pizza crusts but you can also substitute the crusts with flatbread.
