IF you have any leftovers be sure to store them in your Pizza Pack so they taste just as good when you’re ready for more!
- If you want to make this recipe even easier and quicker, feel free to use frozen grilled chicken. You can either air fry it, bake it, or throw it in a skillet. Regardless this would be faster and easier for you!
- If you are someone who is not crazy about pesto sauce a good addition may be alfredo sauce! This can help create a little bit more of an alfredo taste with just a hint of the pesto. If you chose to do this it could be done in a couple ways; you could put alfredo as your base, then drizzle pesto over top of the entire pizza OR you could mix pesto and alfredo together and use it then as your base for the pizza sauce. Both are still very delicious alternatives!
