Mediterranean Pizza Night

We love pizza. Like...LOVE pizza. But pizza isn't always the healthiest choice when it's covered in grease (even though it tastes the best that way). Frank and I decided to try something new so we made this pizza with some Mediterranean toppings to add both flavor and nutrients.

Mediterranean Pizza
Whole Wheat Dough
Grilled Chicken (in bite-sized pieces)
1 can sliced black olives
1 jar roasted red peppers
1 jar pesto sauce
crumbled feta cheese

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. I grilled some chicken on our George Forman grill and cut the chicken in bite-size pieces, but you can also buy a bag of pre-cooked sliced chicken if you don't have the time to cook it fresh. Then, roll your dough on a pizza stone and layer the toppings: pesto,arugula, chicken, peppers and olives, and plenty of feta cheese on top. Cook for about 15-20 minutes (check often) or until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden. 

Frank doesn't like you can see above. 

What kind of pizza do you like? Have you ever tried making your own pizza at home?
