This recipe was so simple and super tasty. I love Schlotzsky's chicken pesto pizza and this, with the exception of the crust, tasted just like it, although this crust was good, too. I used Buitoni/Bertolli (cant remember which) pesto and basil you can find in the deli section of Wal-Mart by the tortellini. I used a rotisserie chicken instead of making my own. I will definitely make this again!

- Expert Tips:
- For an appetizer, cut pizza into bite-size squares, and insert a party toothpick into each piece.
- Go from turf to surf! Use 1/2 lb cooked shrimp in place of the chicken in this recipe.
- Sprinkle the pizza with fresh cracked pepper for an extra boost of flavor.
