It’s no secret: I. LOVE. PIZZA.
This easy recipe for Chicken Pesto Pizza was inspired by my love for Chicken Pesto Sandwiches. I used a refrigerated crust because I was in a hurry, like most of you probably are too. You can use prepared pesto in a jar or make your own with this easy recipe for homemade basil pesto.
While recently browsing Pinterest, I came across a pin that is going to make my life a whole lot easier. I didn’t realize that you could easily shred chicken by using your KitchenAid mixer with the paddle attachment! It literally took SECONDS for restaurant-style shredded chicken. I got the idea from Gwen at Simple Healthy Family. Gwen says to always use warm chicken breasts because using colder, harder chicken might damage your mixer… makes sense!
This pizza recipe is quick, simple and healthy… not to mention it tastes pretty darn awesome too! It’s also a great way to recycle leftover chicken. Just in time for back-to-school dinner ideas!
