Family traditions have always been important to my husband and I. And the best part of those traditions is they don't have to be unique or super difficult. Like making one Thursday night every month Pizza night, which was a tradition we started shortly after we were married. Initially, we would order in a pizza, but then we tried making a homemade pizza one night and it was so much fun, THAT became our new tradition. Over the years we've created some pretty amazing pizza's (and some not so)! This Chicken Mediterrranean is definitely one my favorites! Not only because it is so delicious, but also because you make it an cast iron skillet! Which makes the crust SUPER crispy on the outside and ever so tender on the inside!

It's starts with this SUPER easy homemade Pizza dough!
