101 Uses for a Roast Chicken #21: Chicken & Pesto Pizza

Before I get to the main part of this post, I have something to say. I am going to be making my posts short & light for the coming while because I'm planning on doing my own version of NaNoWriMo next month; you can read about my amendments & reasoning behind them here. Obviously, I still have to eat, so I'll still be posting regularly, but my posts will be shorter than usual and I might be spending less time going around to visit you all. I'm trying to schedule as many posts to publish for me automatically as I can. So, if you don't hear from me as much, it's not that I don't love y'all! I just want to focus on this other goal for a month and see how it goes. Wish me luck!

OK...Onto today's topic...

I had a hankering for pizza the other day. I also had some leftover chicken from my spatchocking experience in the freezer, and I needed to find a way to use a decent chunk of my boring pesto. I've used pesto instead of pizza sauce before and it works really well. I got some naan from the grocery store, and I was set!

Super easy, super quick, really delicious!

Chicken & Pesto Pizza with Olives

1 piece of flat bread - naan, or pita, or whatever
pesto sauce
leftover chicken, cubed
1 slice of Black Forest ham, chopped
mozzarella cheese, shredded
pitted Kalamata olives

Assemble & bake until browned & bubbly.

Enjoy!

Good luck with NaNoWriMo! You'll rule it, girl! Your pizza looks so yummy! I love the addition of pesto and kalamata. Two of my faves!

Good luck! You're really awesome to take on the challenge. The pizza looks yummy, but I'd pick off the olives. I've tried them a few times, but never developed a taste for them.

I'm still feeling bad about your reaction to the spatchcocking fun you had ;)

The pizza looks good if that makes you feel any better.

Pizza with pesto is just divine! I did NanoWriMo last year - I only made it to 12,000 words - because of time - I just didn't have enough of it. I really want to do it again this year - I just don't know how to fit it in - I need more hours in the day now. But lots of luck and have fun with it!
