This was so good! I have to make it every week now for the fam. I replaced the chicken with sauteed shrimp and it is even better. Also used yellow peppers once when no red to be found and that was very good too, and pretty


Super spectacular. I am a collector of pizza recipes and this is definitely in the top 5. I used chicken breast instead of canned chicken and extra pesto. SOOOOO good!


This came out of the oven looking very impressive and tasted great with a couple modifications. The pesto flavor was too overpowering and made the pizza kind of dry (this may have just been the pesto I used). I ended up putting pizza sauce on top of everything and sticking it back into the oven to heat it up. I would suggest adding pizza sauce to this and not solely using the pesto, it really improved the taste. I also tried canned asparagus for the first time, something I will never do again, definitely a vegetable that needs to be fresh. And the directions on roasting red peppers were great and mine turned out perfect!
