A pound of pizza dough and just five simple ingredients yield a flavorful and beautiful summer pizza. Feel free to substitute zucchini for the summer squash or fresh red sweet pepper for the bottled roasted.


  • 1 pound homemade or purchased pizza dough
  • 2/3 cup basil pesto
  • 1 1/2 cups purchased deli-roasted chicken, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced summer squash
  • 1/3 cup bottled roasted red sweet pepper, chopped


  1. Press the dough into a 14-inch circle on a baking sheet. Spread the basil pesto evenly over crust. Top with chicken, shredded cheese, summer squash, roasted red pepper.
  2. Bake in a 500 degrees oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.
