We really enjoyed this pizza for something different for a change. I made it using pizza dough Bread Machine Basic Pizza Dough and used a prepared pesto sauce. I also garnished with some flat leaf parsley. I thought the overall taste just didn't 'pop' for me and needed a sprinkle of kosher salt or parmesan cheese to brighten it. I think it was due to the chicken. I will make this again but will just adjust a little more seasonings next time.

Yummo, hubby wasn't home for tea so I made a small one of these for my dinner, I didn't use the roasted garlic but garlic infused cooking spray on the bases to make it a bit easier. Used some leftover rotisserie chicken & fresh tomatoes from the garden, also added some chopped onion, great pizza!

This was awesome! I didn't have time to roast the garlic, so I just pressed each clove and then smeared it all over the crust, and followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Turned out great! Thank you for helping me get out of my pepperoni and cheese rut.

I hate when people mess up your ingredients in their comments.....yet I am doing so. I had to use a bagel instead of pizza dough b/c I was a forgetful shopper. Nontheless, this was absolutely FANTASTIC! Thnks so much canarygirl!

This was a great pizza recipe! I replaced the tomato with the red pepper and added some feta cheese. I also sprinkled some hot red pepper flakes over it! Next time I might also roast a couple more garlic cloves since our cloves were pretty small. Thanks for a great recipe!

This was great. I followed the directions exactly, with the exception of the toppings. I added some sliced mushrooms, red onions, zucchini, and 1/4 of a yellow bell pepper. This turned out wonderfully and now that the garlic is already roasted, it will take no time at all next time I want to make this. Also, as a side note, as I was in a rush, I purchased a pre-made whole wheat crust (not something I normally do) but it was still perfect). Thanks for the recipe.

I was really surprised that this was just okay for DH and I. We LOVE pesto and love chicken, cheese (of course!), garlic and my homemade pizza crust, but this was almost kind of bland. It did taste better cold as midnight snack however! Thanks for posting this gorgeous pizza!

Yum! This was a delicious pizza! I made it just as the recipe states, but I added sliced red onion, bell pepper, and feta cheese...I only wish there was more! BTW...I made my own whole wheat pizza crust using Whole Wheat Pizza Crust, which made for a terrific combination.

I loved this recipe. It's the first time I've made anything like it and I may never eat any other kind. I used several Zaar recipes for this. For the crust I used Pizza Crust (Another One for the Bread Machine!), for the pesto sauce I used Lighter Spinach Pesto Sauce and for the chicken I used Grilled Cajun Chicken. I didn't really measure the pesto sauce out onto the dizza dough, but wish I had used a little more. Kinda shreaded the chicken some and although I tried not to, I added additional asorted vegetables and sweet red onion as well. I had a few fresh garden tomatoes left which was perfect for this. I know I'll be making this again. The photo is uncooked and without cheese so you could see all the wonderful colors and flavors. Thanks so much
