I make this quick weeknight chicken pizza when I'm craving takeout. I like using shortcuts like premade pizza crust and rotisserie chicken to cut down on my time in the kitchen. —Joseph A. Sciascia, San Mateo, California


  • 1 prebaked 12-inch pizza crust or flatbread
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1/3 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 green onions, chopped, divided
  • 1-1/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Place pizza crust on a pizza pan; brush with sesame oil. In small bowl, combine hoisin sauce and chili garlic sauce; brush 1/3 cup over crust. Toss remaining mixture with chicken; sprinkle over crust. Top with red pepper, carrots, cashews, cilantro and half of the green onions. Sprinkle mozzarella over top.
  2. Bake until cheese is lightly browned, 12-15 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes; sprinkle with remaining green onions.
