This recipe is the perfect dish to make for any potluck or upcoming summer party. You must add this to your 4th of July menu. It comes from my Aunt Karen who unfortunalely lives far away from us in Florida. Even though we don’t get to see each other often, we often exchange recipes. For holidays and get togethers, my mom and her often chat about their menus and come up with various new ideas that they each have tried. This is a recipe she suggested several years ago and we have used it on a regular basis ever since. It’s simple and tasty. The flavors combine together perfectly to create a harmonious dish.

Chicken Pesto Pizza with Feta (print recipe)
1 1/2 cups shredded fresh mozzarella (or to your liking)
1/2 cup feta cheese (reduced fat or fat-free)
1/2 red onion, slivered
Basil (to your liking)
3-4 slices prosciutto, rip into pieces
1 cup chicken, cooked and shredded
Prepare pizza dough according to directions. To build pizza, first layer with pesto to the outer edges of the pizza. Top with half of the onion, chicken, and prosciutto. Add a layer of mozzarella and feta cheese. Top with the rest of the onion, chicken, prosciutto. Top with shredded basil. Bake at 475 degrees for 10-14 minutes, or until lightly browned.
I didn’t end up liking the pizza crust I made this particular time, but next time I want to try this one from Annie’s Eats.
