Letting the chicken soak up Italian dressing makes this so flavorful! This is another quick (once the chicken has marinated) and easy recipe from my files.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine shredded chicken and Italian dressing. Chill in refrigerator for 2 hours.

  3. Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and then heat over medium-high heat. Add red pepper and onion, sauteing until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes.

  5. Spread pesto over dough up to 1/2" from edges.
  6. Top with 1 cup mozzarella.
  7. Drain chicken and put on top with red pepper mixture.

  9. Bake on bottom oven rack 8-10 minutes until crust is browned and cheese is melted.
