Chicken Pesto Pizza–this is ridiculously good. And easy!!

I always laugh when I post recipes on here.  I am not particularly good at cooking.  And I find little or no joy in cooking.  So it’s a little ironic I post recipes.  And I in no way intend for this to be a recipe/food blog.  But it is a huge priority for our family to eat dinner together every night.  So I cook at least something almost every evening.  We don’t eat out much.

It is because of this dislike for cooking that when I find a GREAT and EASY recipe (and moderately healthy), I feel compelled to share it.  For the rest of you out there who love food like me, but don’t necessarily love spending hours in the kitchen only to listen to my kids comment on how disgusting the food is I just cooked.  Maybe that’s just my kids.

I’d rather hire someone to come cook dinner for us than hire someone to clean my house.

Anyway, this is a recipe I adapted from one I originally saw on Becky Higgins (the creator of Project Life) instagram feed.

This is SO fast and easy.  And was seriously REALLY good.  We ate it two nights in a row we liked it so much.

I bought all of the ingredients for this at Costco.

CHICKEN PESTO PIZZA

1 package of Stonefire mini NAAN flatbread (from Costco)
       {The Flatbread is in the refrigerated section by the specialty cheese- close to where the Pesto will        be as well}
Fresh spinach
Mozzarella cheese (get Fresh mozz and grade it yourself–it melts better than already shredded cheese)
    mushrooms
grilled chicken (I just grilled some chicken with a little garlic salt and montreal chicken seasoning on                              my indoor pan that is like a grill.  Or you can grill it on a bbq.  Or cook it however you want)
Basil Pesto sauce (also from Costco)

Put the flatbread on a pizza stone if you have one, or a cookie sheet should work fine too.  Spread some Basil Pesto sauce on top.  Layer with fresh spinach.  Slice up the grilled chicken and put that on top of the spinach.  Then add fresh mushrooms (if you like them).  You could also add olives.  Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top.

Bake at 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

We have a few kids who are not adventurous eaters (yet) so I made a pepperoni pizza for them.  Mozzarella cheese with a few pepperoni.  No sauce.  It didn’t even need the sauce.

The NAAN is kind of like a pita, but it has a different flavor.  It’s a little salty (which I LOVED) so I would definitely try it with this specific bread instead of substituting for something else.

All you moms who don’t love cooking (or do love cooking), let me know if you try this and what you think!

    We LOVE this. We almost have it every week because it is SO easy and tasty. We like to vary the pizzas a little according to my picky and not so picky eaters.

    Thank you!!ReplyCancel
