Chicken Pesto Pizza

Chicken Pesto Pizza

I made up half of this recipe but it turned out well and it was tasty so if you want a variation on regular pizza, try this.

Pizza Shop Dough
4 3/4 C flour
1t. salt
2t. sugar
1t. basil
3/4 t. garlic poweder

Mix above ingredients and add:
1 3/4 cup warm water
> let yeast foam in water
2T. yeast
This dough is pretty moist (almost sticky)
Let rise for 1/2 hour

This is the part I made up. I had 2 chicken breasts and I put them in a baking dish sprayed with pam and sprinkled garlic salt, basil and rosemary and a dash of seasoning salt on them and let them bake for 1 hour in a 350 degree oven, covered in tin foil. Then I shredded them when they came out. You can use any spices that sound good to you.

Parmesan Cheese
Olive Oil
Garlic (1 clove or more)
salt and pepper (to taste)
I don't have any measurements for this but I used about 1/4 C. or a little more olive oil and about 2 cloves of garlic. The rest i just added until it was a spreading consistency. The cheese will really help with that. I let all the flavors mix together and then made everything else. Then spread the pesto on your dough, add the mozzarella and the chicken and bake for 15-20 minutes on 350. We put sliced tomatoes on top. Very tasty!
