Italian Chicken Vegetable Pizza

This is a fast, simple, inexpensive pizza, but that does not stop it being a gourmet treat. It is one of the most attractive pizzas you will ever eat, with ripe olives, fresh mushrooms, red tomato sauce, and red pepper pieces.

It uses readily available ingredients, and can be made either with a premade crust, or with your favorite pizza dough recipe. It is sure to please the whole family, either way. Use your preferred canned or jarred pizza sauce with this Italian pizza, or top it with a great homemade pizza sauce recipe instead. This is one chicken pizza that no one you serve it to is going to forget!

When making Italian recipes, and pizza in particular, it pays to choose the nicest-looking, most colorful ingredients to grace the top of it, to add a charming and appetizing look, and to make every slice look irresistible. Frozen pizza might look nice on the box (and it has to really, else nobody would be buying it) but more often than not when it comes out of the oven all you have is a big plateful of disappointment. The same can definitely not be said about homemade pizzas, especially the following Italian chicken vegetable pizza. Not only does this boast so many colors and flavors, but it also tastes fresh and simply wonderful.

Part of the joy of making your own pizza is getting to choose which toppings you put on there, and many keen home cooks like to choose a tasty protein like shrimp, beef or chicken, along with some colorful vegetables, and then you can consider what kind of cheese to use, whether to add some herbs and spices, and maybe think about olives, anchovies, or other touches. Homemade pizza is lovely and this particular recipe teams chicken with vegetables for a rustic, charming pizza which packs a fabulous flavor punch.
