Basil Pesto Chicken Pizza

Happy National Pizza Day!

I didn’t know that yesterday was National Pizza Day. So to celebrate, why not post a recipe about pizza?

Pizza is seriously amazing. It can be made in a variety of ways from Hawaiian style to deep dish New York or Chicago style. Some can have meat or be completely vegetarian. In any case, its just awesome. I tried my hand at making a pizza from scratch. Do you have a favorite topping or crust like thin, hand tossed, cauliflower, or even stuffed with delicious goodness? Comment below!

I used a toaster oven to cook mine but can definitely use a regular oven too, specially if your making a larger sized pizza.
