This Teriyaki Chicken Pizza is a great way to change up pizza night with a teriyaki and pineapple twist.

Teriyaki Chicken Pizza - Change up your pizza with a teriyaki and pineapple twist.

As a food blogger, you learn to make do with your circumstances in order to make things work. During these winter months, this means I am often making dinner at lunchtime so that I can photograph the food while the light is good. This translates into reheated dinners most nights. It really does mostly work well for us, to be honest. I can never guess how the kids are going to be acting when dinnertime rolls around, or if I will have a newborn that is wanting mom’s attention. But if I can make dinner during the day, the chances of us actually having dinner that night are higher.

I guess I should say that usually this works.

This one particular day, I made this teriyaki chicken pizza in the early afternoon. The pizza was made, the pictures taken, and then the whole thing was wrapped up and put in the refrigerator, waiting to be reheated for dinner. (I guess I should say all of it except for the piece that I had to sample when the pizza was fresh – I couldn’t resist!) I went about my day. Dinnertime came, my husband got home, and all chaos broke loose. I think all three kids wanted attention at the same time. I stuck the pizza in the oven to warm it up. My husband took over the two older kids while I worked on making the baby happy. Later, while I was sitting on the couch and my husband was at the front of the house entertaining kids, I remembered the pizza. I yelled to my husband who ran to the oven, only to discover a deeply charred and inedible pizza.

I can’t tell you how sad I was. Because this teriyaki chicken pizza was good. And this is when I was very grateful that I did sample that piece earlier in the day, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to tell you if this was good or not. But part of me wished that I didn’t know, because it only made me that much sadder that we wouldn’t be eating pizza for dinner.

But I have promised my husband that I will make this Teriyaki Chicken Pizza again soon. I told him that I will make it so that he will be able to find out for himself how good it is, but really – it’s because I want more!!

  1. This DOES look delicious! How sad though that your family didn’t get to eat it that evening. 🙁 Guess you’ll have to make it again!! 🙂

  2. I simply adore this…So creative!

  3. ” am often making dinner at lunchtime so that I can photograph the food while the light is good. This translates into reheated dinners most nights.” <– I thought I was the only one who did this. I have no idea how other bloggers do it and I feel like no one talks about their secrets b/c by 2-3 pm at the very very latest, the photos have to be done in my house in order to be passable. That means starting the meal by noon, cooking, setup etc. Thank you for saying that you do this too b/c I have always wondered what everyone else does & no one seems to admit to the reheated dinner!

    And soooo sorry you burned it. Eek. I can feel the chaos in your words. Three kids, everyone needing you. Oh boy.

    This looks really tasty. I grew up in Hawaii and teriyaki anything is wonderful!

    ps: sorry about the charring, what a disappointment. You’re not alone…I burned a batch of cookies a few weeks ago 🙁

  5. Kristy says:

    Oh! What a night. I’ve totally been there. At least you had sampled some. 😉 You are officially the queen of pizzas! The combinations you come up with are endless and so good. My son would especially love this one. 🙂

    This looks amazing! I wish I could do mid-day meal prep and just reheat in the evening as the dinner hour is always jam-packed with homework and cooking at the same time!

    This pizza looks amazing!

  7. carrian says:

    That seriously sounds so good right now. Ok, sold. Dinner tonight.

  8. 1. I’m glad I’m not the only one who is cooking dinner around noon and reheating it later, just for the sheer purpose of photographs.
    2. I’m glad I’m not the only mom who has left dinner in the oven too long when tending to a baby.
    3. You’re not alone.

  9. This pizza looks incredible, wish I had it for dinner tonight!!

  10. Awwww, I’m so sorry that you couldn’t have it for dinner! At least you sampled it! And yes, this looks amazing! I’m a sucker for anything involving “teriyaki” and putting it on a pizza is just genius!

  11. That’s too bad about the burnt pizza! Regardless, this looks and sounds delicious and you were more than lucky to snag a taste before the chaos. I am definitely passing this along to my meat eaters, such an easy recipe!

  12. I’d like to marry this.

  13. Lillian says:

    Oh YUM!!!! Yes, it does sound worthy of another try! 😉

  14. Bree says:

    I do the same thing and always laugh that my neighbors must think I am crazy taking pics of my food on the deck midday! This does look terrific!

  15. I know exactly what you mean about having to make meals before you want to eat them to get the good light! Or eating cold because you want to to get the perfect shot. The pizza looks delicious though!

  16. Joanne says:

    I often cook in the middle of the day or at odd hours because it works out better that way timing-wise. So I get it. UGH to your pizza being burned! I’m sorry love!

  17. Oh dear, I feel your sadness at the charred pizza 🙁 I love having dinner ready early since 5:00 seems to be when mayhem strikes in my house – somehow the baby always knows it’s suppertime and thinks he should be eating/socializing too! Homemade pizza is one of my favourite foods and this combo looks wonderful!

  18. Pinning this one! This looks great 🙂
