Easy, quick, and one of Brad’s favorite pizzas. Make this when you want to take your pizza making up a notch!

Note: The great thing about making your own pizza is that the bare crust is just like a blank canvas. Let your inner Rembrandt have his way, and use the following ingredients in the amounts that taste right to you.




      For pesto:

      1. In the bowl of a food processor combine the red peppers, garlic, almonds, and cheese.
      2. Add 3 Tbsp. parsley, 1 tsp. lemon juice, 2 tsp. olive oil, and pinch of cayenne pepper.
      3. Pulse until a coarse puree forms. Season with salt and black pepper.

      For pizza:

      1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
      2. Spread pesto over pizza crust.
      3. Sprinkle Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese over pesto.
      4. Add caramelized onions.
      5. Follow with roasted white chicken. Remember you want a taste in every bite!
      6. Add coarsely chopped basil.
      7. Place dollops of goat cheese around.
      8. Drizzle balsamic reduction over all.
      9. Finish with a pinch of salt and pepper.
      10. Place in oven and cook for 10 minutes.
      11. Enjoy!
