DeLallo Made Easy Recipes: Chicken Pesto Pizza

Chicken Pesto Pizza


A variation of the beloved "white" pizza without the red sauce—but we've made it green! The herbaceous flavor of Genovese Basil Pesto makes its mark in this tasty, eye-catching creation. A great, easy-to-prepare meal ready to impress any night of the week.


  • 3 tablespoons DeLallo Basil Simply Pesto Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons DeLallo Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon DeLallo Minced Garlic in Water
  • 1 pound refrigerated pizza dough
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella
  • Thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 cooked chicken breasts, shredded
  • Torn basil leaves


Preheat oven to 450˚F.

In a bowl, whisk pesto, olive oil and minced garlic to incorporate.

Shape pizza dough into a circle, or desired shape. Place on a greased baking sheet or pizza pan. Brush with pesto and garlic mixture. Bake for 5 minutes.

Remove from oven and top with mozzarella, red onion and chicken. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown, and serve topped with torn basil leaves.
