My New Favorite Food

We have a local restaurant that offers Brick Oven Pizza's. We had the opportunity to sample some of them, not too long ago - and I was intrigued with the different toppings and flavors they put together. And so I have begun to experiment.

With my crazy, busy life - I don't have time (very often) to make my own dough anymore. I have found a ready made crust in our diary section at my favorite grocery store Wegmans. All I do is throw the toppings on and bake. It is thick - but comes out nice and crunchy. No - it isn't the best - but it does in a pinch and my family likes it.

So here is my 'latest' favorite food!

On a prepared pizza crust spread:

1-2 TBS of pesto.
Sprinkle with shredded mozzeralla cheese
Sprinkle with parmesean cheese

In a separate pan brown and cook thru 1 boneless skinless chicken breast in a little bit of olive oil and pesto. salt, pepper and garlic powder. Shred it as it cooks.

Spread cooked - shredded chicken breast meat over cheese.
Sprinkle some sundried tomatoes and artichokes (both chopped) over the top.

Bake at 350 for 20 mins.

I of course made a pepperoni and cheese for the boys too.
Do you have favorite pizza toppings?
I'd love to hear about them!
