My husband loves pizza. Let’s be honest, because so do I. But, sometimes I want a little healthier option when we make at home, so we compromise with a favorite recipe we have. This pesto chicken CHEESY pizza, is easy to whip up on a night when you don’t have a whole lot of time to cook.
All you need is:
- Pizza crust (buy pre-made to save time!)
- Pesto sauce (I usually make my own with basil, EVO, garlic, Parmesan, & pine nuts, but opted for store bought this time).
- Fresh mozzarella cheese
- Parmesan cheese
- Goat cheese (Crow’s Dairy is a good local cheese!)
- Grilled chicken (I usually marinate in an Italian seasoning for some more flavor)
- Frozen or fresh corn
Spread the pesto sauce on the pizza dough. Layer the cheese. Add the chicken, corn & spinach. ADD MORE MOZZARELLA. I sprinkle some more pesto on top to keep the pizza saucy.
Read the pizza dough instructions for cooking time. Usually 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees.
This pizza would also be good with some red or yellow chopped bell pepper, leeks and/or purple onion if you want to add even more veggies!
