“I've had this recipe for years and usually made it with chicken breasts. Just recently, I started using rotisserie chicken from the store cut into strips. Very quick!” notes Barbara Hunt of Nipomo, California.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

"This was very good. The pesto is what made this recipe. I think next time I am going to add some bacon, olives, cilantro and green onion for toppers just for more yummy goodness."

"After seeing the picture, i was very intigued. I never thought you can have a "pizza" with avocado "sauce". :)

I didnt have pita bread on hand so i made dough by using another recipe on this site:
I know its for bread sticks but it was very good as a pizza dough :) i baked a pizza dough and put on the toppings to heat again. I didnt use the hot pepper or e lemon juice (not a big fan of either) but i did spice it up a li'l with paprika and regular pepper. My 20 month old devoured a slice (without the added paprika) yum yum!"
