Bacon, Pesto, & Chicken Pizza

Bacon-Basil Pesto & Chicken Pizza | You won't miss the red sauce with this delicious pesto-topped pizza #bacon #pizza #pesto

We have pizza about every other Friday and it's one of the few foods we have similar or the same recipes over and over again. Sometimes I will just make a regular old sausage and pepperoni pizza. We rarely have chicken pizza or pizzas without red sauce, but this one is one of the very best recipes for a red-sauceless, white meat pizza I've tried to date. It's very simple and comes together quickly. The only downside is that leftovers don't happen with it!

What you need:
  • 1 recipe pizza dough [I used my favorite recipe and dusted the pizza pan with cornmeal]
  • 1 jar prepared pesto or 1 cup homemade pesto
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 to 2 chicken breasts, seasoned with salt and pepper, cooked and diced/shredded
  • Bacon bits
Directions:
  1. Prepare pizza dough and stretch to fit pizza pan. Prebake for 8 to 10 minutes at 425*.
  2. Once prebaked, top with pesto, cheese, chicken, and bacon. I like to do a little cheese on top too to try and hold the other toppings down.
  3. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until crust turns golden brown on the edges.
