30 by 30, #17: Create a new recipe.

In case you aren't familiar with the 30 by 30 Project, here is the original post, with the big fat list.

Note: I wrote this post back in May, and then never posted it in case I came up with a better recipe. I didn't. So here it is!

I really wasn't sure how this one would pan out. I'm not what you'd call a chef. I follow recipes pretty much to the letter. So I knew that creating a new recipe would be more like tweaking a recipe, and that is ok. It's a start, anyway.

I make pizza all the time, and we usually have either BBQ Chicken or Pepperoni. But last week I thought I'd try my hand at some sort of Ranch Chicken pizza. We had some leftover shredded chicken, and a tomato that needed to be eaten. So I made a pizza crust, slapped some ranch on it, added the chicken, some Monterey jack cheese, chopped tomato, and baked it up. It turned out. . . well, it was decent. I might even say good, though not great. I think it would have been better if the chicken had been cooked with some seasonings, or maybe if I'd added garlic salt on top, or something. It was a little bland. But like I say, it was a start, and it got me excited to experiment some more.
