The gardening bug has bit! Winco had their basil plants again and I just had to pick one up. All that lovely basil smell wafting through the living room brought back memories… When Chris worked at the Olive Garden, my favorite dish was the chicken capellini pomodoro. I decided to try to mimic that on a pizza. It turned out pretty darn tasty!
First make up a batch of pizza dough. I use my Easy Peasy Bread recipe.
Roll half of the dough into a circle large enough for your pizza.
You will need:
2 cooked and sliced chicken breasts
3 Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
1/8 cup chopped fresh basil
fresh chopped garlic
Italian seasoning (I like Papa John’s garlic herb blend)
crushed red pepper
Brush crust with olive oil.
Put garlic, Italian seasonings and red pepper on crust.
Bake at 425 for about 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and the crust is golden.
