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


Chicken
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.


Pesto
Basil
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!
