Chicken and Mushroom Pesto Pizza

February 25, 2012 § 2 Comments

This is the easiest and quickest pizza dough ever. EVER.

I found this recipe on Little Space (link below) and couldn’t wait to try it. It’s not the crisp, hole-y pizza dough that you get from the good pizza places or from other recipes, but its so simple and is really good. Almost focaccia bread like. Actually, if you mixed in some rosemary and topped it with thin sliced onions it’d make a super yummy bread appetizer. Next time. 🙂

Chicken and Mushroom Pesto Pizza (pizza dough from Little Space)


  • 1 packet yeast
  • 1 c warm water
  • 2 1/2 c flour
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • grilled chicken breast
  • sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 c pesto sauce (homemade or store bought, I used store bought)
  • 1/2 c mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the yeast and water and stir until yeast dissolves.

Add the flour, honey, salt and oil. Stir to combine, first with a wooden spoon then use your hands to knead it together.

Let dough rest for 10 mins.

Line baking sheet with parchment. (mine are 18″x13″ and it fills up more than half if I want a 1/2″ crust)

Press dough into pan to shape and thickness you want.

Top with sauce, then chicken and mushrooms, and then cheese.

Bake for about 30 mins or until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly.
