Ingredients

  • 1 batch homemade or store-bought pizza crust*
  • 1/3 cup homemade or store-bought pesto (click here for my homemade pesto recipe)
  • 1 large boneless skinless chicken breast pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese**
  • optional: freshly chopped parsley

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400. Sprinkle chicken breast with Italian seasoning and salt and pepper to taste. Cook in a greased pan or skillet over medium heat 3-4 minutes on each side until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle. Cut into cubes and set aside.
  • Spread pesto over your pizza crust. Spread cubed chicken throughout. Sprinkle generously with mozzarella cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crust is golden and cheese is melted (or according to store-bought dough instructions).
  • If desired, sprinkle pizza with chopped parsley. Serve warm.

Notes

For an even healthier, lightened-up version of this pizza - use thin crust pizza dough! You make it at home, or buy pre-made crust, or Pillsbury has some in the refrigerated section as well.
**Use 1 cup of part-skim mozzarella cheese for a lightened-up version.
