Who doesn’t love pizza? Papa Johns may have some hella deals, but when eating right, the convenience of delivery unfortunately isn’t an option. I had some leftover rotisserie chicken and decided to use it for a pizza.
I love pesto and the flavor of basil along with tomatoes. So, I chose to use both a tomato sauce and pesto sauce together for this pizza. It is super easy and turned out great! This would make a great option to use with a cauliflower or zucchini crust. But, this time I went old school and convenient with regular ol’ dough.
What you need:
-Cooked pulled chicken
-Tomato sauce of choice
-Pizza crust (I used Pillsbury thin crust)
What to do:
- Roll your dough out onto a greased baking sheet.
- Spread tomato sauce over dough.
- Repeat with pesto sauce.
- Add chicken and strips of basil leaves.
- Top with mozzarella cheese.
- Bake according to pizza crust instructions.
While this was wonderful on its own, next time I’d like to add sun-dried tomatoes and pine nuts. I have enough leftovers for lunch this week, and I can’t wait to eat it all over again!
