Chicken Pesto Pizza Recipe

I had some extra flatbread on hand and was looking to put it to good use. I came across a recipe for chicken pesto pizza and thought I would give it a try. I really like the thin crust and the crispiness of the baked flatbread, it’s perfect for pizza. Basically, this pizza is topped with a pesto sauce, artichoke hearts, chicken and cheese. If you don’t want to use chicken, I would recommend trying shrimp. This recipe uses a pretty basic basil pesto consisting of ingredients such as basil, garlic, pine nuts and olive oil. There is nothing hard about this pizza recipe and if you are using pre-cooked chicken, it can be served within 30 minutes. Enjoy.
