Pesto Chicken Pizza












Ingredients
- 1 Chicken Breast
- Mozzarella Cheese shredded
- 1/2 c mushrooms (if desired)
any other veggies you like

PESTO SAUCE
- 2 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup Olive Oil
- 3 tablespoons pine nuts
- 2 garlic cloves, finely minced

CRUST
- 2 C flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 c melted butter
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- milk to wet
ok, this is where I diverged from the recipe- basically make the crust how you want it, I just did it this way b/c I had no yeast :)

Directions
1) Heat oven to 350
2) Boil the Chicken Breast until there is no pink then pull it apart at the grain into small pieces
3) While Chicken Blend all the pesto sauce ingredients together and set aside
4) Mix crust ingredients together and roll out thin onto a pan
5) Once you have rolled at dough put in oven for 10 min.
6) take dough out and spread Pesto Sauce, chicken, Mozarella cheese and mushrooms on dough to liking.
5) bake at 350 for apx 15-20 min. until it is how you like it! :)

Left overs good for lunch and left over pesto sauce for sandwiches or pasta the rest of the week!
