Pesto Chicken Bacon Pizza with Asiago & Goat Cheese
Do you ever have leftover chicken that you just don’t feel like eating? I like to take things like that and transform them.
And one of my favorite food transformations is to make pizza. I make mini-pizza crusts ahead of time and freeze them just for times like this. Good thing I have plenty of pesto on hand too! And fun cheeses.
This one is really a good flavor combination.
Pesto Chicken Bacon Pizza with Asiago and Goat Cheese
- Pizza Crust (homemade or store bought)
- Pesto (I used Basil-Lime Pesto)
- Leftover cooked chicken, shredded
- Crumbled bacon (you don’t need much — I used about 1/2 a slice of bacon on my individual pizza)
- Chopped onion
- Freshly shredded Asiago Cheese
- Goat cheese
- Chopped tomato
Spread a thin layer of pesto on the crust. Top with chicken and bacon.
Top with onions, then the shredded Asiago. Crumble some goat cheese over that. And then top it all with the chopped tomatoes (or halved cherry tomatoes).
Bake at 400 for about 10 minutes or until the cheeses are melty and the top is just lightly browned in a couple spots.
