Chicken, Red Grape, and Pesto Pizza

Grapes make an ideal salad topping, but what about on pizza...? This surprising addition is a sweet contrast to the tangy Romano cheese, herby pesto, and juicy chicken. Grapes are said to slow the aging process, so here is a case where eating another slice of pizza definitely has its benefits.
