Wow! This was awesome. I used a whole ear of corn cooked according to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RzYtMeIFH8o (you gotta try this!). I used more like a half small bottle of pesto, as that's what I had left and didn't want to waste it. My husband is not fond of green food, but loved this. He kept saying "this doesn't taste like pizza, but it's delicious. Ate a double helping. To me, it tasted like the best gourmet pizza at the high-dollar pizza places.

- 1 pound whole-wheat pizza dough
- 1/2 cup (1/2-inch-thick slices) portobello mushrooms
- 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 cup bottled pesto
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 3/4 cup skinless, boneless, shredded rotisserie chicken
- 1/2 cup fresh sweet corn kernels
- 2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
- 1. Preheat oven to 425°.
- 2. Lightly coat a round perforated pan with vegetable cooking spray, or put a pizza stone in the oven while it preheats. Place pizza dough on a lightly floured surface, and roll it into a 12-inch circle. Place dough on prepared pizza pan or stone, and bake for 5 minutes.
- 3. While the crust is baking, coat a small nonstick skillet with vegetable cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, 4–5 minutes or until softened and lightly browned; set aside.
- 4. Spread the pesto over warm crust, leaving a 1/2-inch edge. Sprinkle pepper evenly over crust, and top with chicken, corn, mushrooms, and goat cheese. Bake 12–15 minutes or until crust is cooked through and cheese is golden brown. Remove from oven, and sprinkle with basil. Cut into 8 wedges; serve hot.
