The Best Chicken Pesto Pizza Ever!

Looking through old kitchen photos recently, I realized that I neglected to share one of my favorite, relatively easy and totally delicious favorites: CHICKEN PESTO PIZZA! (You have to say it slow like Bacon-Burger-Dawwwwwwwwwwwg)

I made this the first time with store brand pas to from Whole Foods and it was very good. So good that I made it again a couple times, HOWEVER.. It didn’t get to be downright delicious until I dropped the broccoli, added more asparagus and (drumroll) made my own pesto from locally grown basil. Whoa! At that point I had to keep a stick by the over to beat folks away.

I’m sure you’ll find your favorite way to make this one. Take a picture when you do, I’d like to see.
