    westtextazzy's Note:

    These cute little pizzas are actually good for you, low in fat, tasty, and fit the Medditeranean diet style of eating --olive oil, artichokes, lean protein, veggies. You could serve this anytime of day. Change the toppings as you wish.

      WOW! This was so good. The pesto was the star of this dish and I can see making it for other applications. Plus the combo of the pesto with the chicken and Laughing Cow cheese is to die for. Well done!
