Best Za You'll Ever Make

Wednesday. It’s the middle of the week - you’ve made it 3 days and only have 2 more to go. Go you! Today, we are sharing a recipe perfect for winding down and enjoying #WineWednesday. Introducing the “Best Za You’ll Ever Make” aka Kascadia’s version of a great pizza!


Pillsbury Pizza Dough

Olive oil

1 chicken breast



Cremini Mushroom



Dried Cranberries




Mrs. Dash – Original version


  1. Set your music to a killer playlist. Check out "The Best Damn Za Playlist" on Spotify!
  2. Grease up your pizza pan and preheat the oven to 425oC
  3. Roll out your dough in any way you like and pop it in the oven for 8 minutes
  4. Take a frying pan out, chop up your chicken and fry that baby up – throw in some Mrs. Dash while you’re at it!
  5. Take another frying pan out – chop up your onion, garlic and mushroom then throw those puppies on the pan
  6. Once the onions and mushroom mix look lightly cooked, throw in the chopped spinach
  7. NOTE: You’re doing the pizza dough, chicken and veggie mix simultaneously so don’t mess it up – eyes on the prize people!
  8. Take your dough out of the oven and set it aside for a second while you catch your breath
  9. Finish cooking the chicken and veggie mixture up (NO pink in that chicken)
  10. Alright, this is where the beauty of the dish starts to come together…
  11. Take your dough and drizzle a little olive oil on it and then add some more Mrs. Dash (she’s our fave)
  12. Cut up the brie cheese into small, thin pieces and put it on the soon to be pizza
  13. Add the chicken and sautéed veggie mixture on top
  14. Now, go ahead and thinly slice your pear – throw it on top
  15. Grab a handful of the dried cranberries and sprinkle them on top  
  16. Pop that baby back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes or until golden brown (We’re going to be honest and say we didn’t use a timer so just watch until it’s golden brown)
  17. After putting the za on a cutting board drizzle honey and balsamic on top
  18. Voilà! You’ve made the best darn pizza you have ever laid your eyes on! Bravo!
