Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 15x10-inch or larger dark or nonstick cookie sheet with cooking spray. Heat oven to 400°F (425°F for all other pan types). Unroll dough in pan; starting at center, press dough into 15x10-inch rectangle. Bake 8 minutes.
  • 2
    Spread pesto to within 1/2 inch of edges of crust. Top with 1 1/2 cups of the cheese, the chicken and tomatoes; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
  • 3
    Bake 6 to 10 minutes or until crust is deep golden brown and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with basil. To serve, cut into 6 rows by 3 rows.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For even tomato spacing, try to get 9 slices out of each tomato for a total of 18 slices in this Chicken Pesto Pizza recipe.
  • tip 2
    Go from turf to surf! Use 1/2 lb cooked shrimp in place of the chicken in this pizza.
  • tip 3
    Sprinkle the pesto chicken pizza with fresh cracked pepper for an extra boost of flavor.
