I put pizza sauce on the crust before adding the other ingredients. This was a nice change of pace from the usual pizza toppings.

Very delicious! I didn't add onions but added double the pesto sauce. It was very very good.. will be making again, thanks!

This was delicious. I used chicken breast and cooked it in a little olive oil. The red onion and tomatoes on top were yummy. I was worried it might be dry, so I used pizza sauce, and it turned out perfect. A real crowd pleaser.
