Pesto Chicken Artichoke Pizza

By Lisa VanWilliams

This is fairly easy to throw together for a tasty dinner the whole family will enjoy. You can switch up your ingredients and use whatever items you prefer, but this combo goes well together and you will not be disappointed if you like these flavors. This makes two small pies.

1 tablespoon olive oil
garlic powder
2-3 chicken breasts diced
2 garlic cloves
15 oz fresh pizza dough
4 tablespoons pesto
1/2 cup artichoke hearts
1 cup fresh mozzarella (deli section at store -small balls)
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan

Preheat oven to 450. Dice up your chicken into small pieces and and toss into hot oil in pan, add fresh garlic, salt&pepper, garlic powder, and cook.

Stretch out your dough and put into pan. Cover the dough liberally with your pesto. The add your cooked chicken pieces, break up the pieces of artichoke and spread out evenly.

I cut the mini mozzarella balls in half and spread them out across the pie and then sprinkle with the Parmesan and toss in oven for 15 minutes until it starts to brown. I turn the broiler on at the end to crisp up the top. Enjoy!
