Pesto Pizza

Homemade pizza is delicious but you can have the same wonderful taste without all the work. I typically pick up pizza dough at trader joes and then top it with whatever suits my mood at the time. Often, I make a veggie pesto pizza (using either homemade or store bought pesto).

1 pizza dough (I used whole wheat)
1 cup pesto sauce (or as much as you want.. usually a thin layer is best)
assortments of veggies (I used 1 red pepper, 1 zucchini, 8 oz mushrooms, 1/2 onion).
1/2 cup precooked chicken (optional if you want veggie only)
8 oz mozzarella cheese

Follow the directions on how to make the dough and bake it. After rolling out dough, top pizza with pesto, cheese, veggies, and chicken. Bake according to pizza dough directions until browned and cheese is melted.
