  • Pizza crust (Find my favourite recipe here!:http://halifaxbloggers.ca/isaynomato/2015/07/20/east-coast-garlic-fingers-with-donair-sauce/)
  • 1 'log' goat cheese (~120g)
  • 1 cup Pesto (I use Kirkland brand from Costco when I can't make my own!)
  • 1 chicken breast , pre-cooked
  • 5 button mushrooms , sliced
  • 1 onion , sliced
  • 2 cups loosely packed spinach
  • OPTIONAL: Replace the goat cheese with feta for those who aren't fans. It's still very delicious! And if you're a vegetarian , you can leave off the chicken.
  1. Preheat your oven to 425°
  2. Spread your pizza dough out on a pizza pan or stone, making sure to create a lip for your crust.
  3. Spread the pesto evenly over the pizza.
  4. In a small frying pan, cook the mushrooms, onions and spinach in a little butter until soft and caramelized, and then spread those on the pizza.
  5. Thinly slice your goat cheese and space it out evenly over the pizza so every bite will have a slice!
  6. Cut the chicken into small, bite-sized pieces and evenly distribute over the pizza.
  7. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the pizza crust is a nice, golden brown.
