Curried chicken pizza

I could have called it "cleaning out the fridge pizza" but the PR major in me thought better of it. I tried to recreate a pizza I'd had from a local delivery place - really great, exciting taste! The thing I love about curry is that it's one part exciting spice and one part smoky comfort taste.

1 recipe favorite pizza crust, pre-baked
1/2 pound boneless, skinless chicken cut into strips
1 onion, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1/2 Granny Smith apple, chopped
3/4 cup creme fraiche (sour cream)
1 tsp curry powder
pinch cinnamon
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 Tbsp olive oil

Heat olice oil in a skillet over med-high heat. Cook onion until soft, then add chicken and garlic. Stir often until not pink remains. Sprinkle on curry and cinammon. Turn of the heat and stir in apple, tomato and creme fraiche.

Spread chicken mixture over pre-baked crust. Top with a little shredded mozzarella - you don't need a lot since there's no strong tomato marinara to match.

Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees until cheese has melted.

This recipe is for Hanalee.
