Easy Chicken Pesto Pizza

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Scenario: Your friends throw a house party together last minute and ask you to bring an appetizer to share. You don't have much time to whip up something fabulous and you don't want to skimp and bring chips and dip.

So what's a girl to do? My first tip is to always have these ingredients on hand. It's the perfect go-to recipe for Friday nights at home in front of the TV, or aforementioned "in a pinch" situations.

What you'll need:
1 pre-cooked pizza crust (i.e. Boboli)
3-4 tbsp pesto
2-3 tbsp of your favorite jarred Alfredo sauce
1 package of fully-cooked chicken breast -- I recommend Perdue Italian Style Short Cuts
1 bag shredded Italian cheese blend

Preheat oven to 450F. Spread pesto over pizza crust. Add chicken to cover pesto evenly. Drizzle Alfredo sauce over chicken and cover completely with shredded cheese. Bake directly on the oven rack for 8-10 minutes or until cheese starts to brown.
