    WildLightning's Note:

    This is a pizza that is inspired by a restaurant I worked in as a teen. The pizza dough recipe comes from my Breadman Healthy Bread and Recipe book that came with my bread machine.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    15 inch ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the ingredients for the dough in the bread machine in the order given (ending with the yeast). Set to the dough cycle.
    2. 2
      When done, remove to floured board, if using immediately. Or place in a bowl greased with olive oil, turn to coat it, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.
    3. 3
      Shape pizza dough into a crust, roughly 15 inches, and place on a lightly floured cookie sheet.
    4. 4
      Bake in the preheated 400 degree oven for about 8 minutes until mostly baked. (Sometimes piercing the dough with a fork beforehand helps keep air bubbles away).
    5. 5
      Let crust cool for a few minutes before adding toppings.
    6. 6
      Starting in the middle of the crust, spread out the pesto sauce in a circular motion until the pizza dough is covered.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle with one cup of cheese.
    8. 8
      Spread out remaining ingredients, holding the cheese back for last. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the toppings.
    9. 9
      Bake in a 400 degree oven until cheese is a light golden brown. (Approx 8-10 minutes).

      Great pizza. I used Basil Pesto for the pesto, partially cooked the chicken and we cooked it on the KJ with a pizza stone. Loved how many different flavors were on the pizza.

      I make pizza almost every weekend so I am always looking for different varieties. The crust is very good, I'm going to replace the one I usually use with this! I only used half of the green pepper (sliced very thin) half the onion and only 6 oz chicken because it was starting to get overloaded! Next time I think I will add a little more pesto. We don't eat many artichokes or kalamata olives but really liked it! I cooked it on a hot pizza stone so it baked in about 8 minutes. Made this for PAC SPRING 2010, thanks!
