Always Cook Enough For Leftovers


Anyways back to this recipe.  This recipe seriously takes 10 minutes from start to finish…for real!!  The key is to use leftovers from the night before.

So here is how this recipe transpired.  The night before I made my amazing pesto recipe and grilled some pesto chicken on the grill.  

As always, I overcook to have leftovers so that lunchtime or breakfast is easier.  This organic pesto chicken pizza recipe was my lunch the next day.

The Making Of This Organic Pesto Chicken Pizza Recipe


So as mentioned, I had some leftover pesto and leftover pesto chicken.  I headed out to the garden and picked some fresh basil and some sweet 100 tomatoes (my all time favorite tomato, oh how sweet they are!)

I now have the making for this amazing pizza, how easy is that?  The only other ingredient that is needed is a sprouted grain tortilla!  

Here is my favorite brand of spouted grain tortillas that I absolutely LOVE! We buy them by the case because it is much more economical that way and we go through them quite quickly.

Step 1:

Brush the spouted tortilla with some pesto or olive oil.  Place the pesto chicken, tomatoes and fresh basil onto the tortilla.

Step 2:  

Sprinkle generously with your favorite cheese of choice.

Step 3:  

Place the pizza in the center of a cookie sheet. Doesn’t this look amazing?  I almost didn’t cook it because it looked good enough to eat in its raw state.

Step 4:

It is now ready to go into the oven.  Preheat oven to 450ºF and bake for 7-10 minutes.

Step 5:  

Cook until the pizza is crisp. You are looking for the edges of the tortilla to become slightly brown and crisp. The under side of the tortilla will also become crispy making this an amazing thin crust pizza!

Step 6:  

Slice and Serve.  I mean really, don’t you want a bite of this pizza?  

This organic pesto chicken pizza recipe is super easy and takes 10 minutes to make!  Now that is fast food made with whole food ingredients.  That is my kind of cookin! :)

    Use a small tortilla and put it in a toaster oven or better yet right on the grill.
