Garlic Chicken Pesto Pizza

Last night, we had my mother over for dinner. I love trying new recipes and ideas when we have extra people for dinner, since it means more feedback for the meal. This was super easy to throw together and had everyone at the table going crazy over it. Even my kids happily ate it, which must mean it was delicious!! My mom said it was one of her favorites!! Definitely try this, maybe for Pizza Friday?? : )


2 containers pizza dough (I used Pilsbury, you can use whichever you prefer or make your own)
1 container Pesto (about 1 cup)
Minced Garlic
1 lb cooked, shredded, chicken
Garlic Powder
Mozzarella Cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)


On a pizza pan/stone, spread out pizza dough until desired size and shape is reached. Spread Pesto sauce over the top of the pizza. Next, sprinkle minced garlic over top followed by shredded chicken. Using the garlic powder, sprinkle it over the top of the crust. Add cheese on top and cook pizza in oven according to pizza dough directions. *Mine was baked at 425 for about 15 minutes.
*You can make your own pizza dough and Pesto sauce if you prefer
