Grapes make an ideal salad topping, but what about on pizza…? This surprising addition is a sweet contrast to the tangy Romano cheese, herby pesto, and juicy chicken. Grapes are said to slow the aging process, so here is a case where eating another slice of pizza definitely has its benefits.
1 (11-ounce) can refrigerated thin-crust pizza dough
1/3 cup refrigerated pesto
1 1/2 cups seedless red grapes, halved
8 ounces shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast $
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons grated Romano cheese
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1. Preheat oven to 425°.
2. On a lightly floured surface, pat dough into a 12-inch circle; gently place dough on a pizza pan coated with cooking spray.
3. Spread pesto evenly over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border around edges. Arrange grapes evenly over dough; top evenly with chicken. Top with garlic and mozzarella; sprinkle with Romano and pepper.
4. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Sprinkle with onions.
5. Cut into 12 wedges.
