Chicken Pesto Pizza

Chicken Pesto Pizza with Sun-dried tomatoes and Artichokes 
This pizza is something I pulled together after making the goat cheese, pesto and sun-dried tomato terrine, and I had some pesto and sun-dried tomatoes left over to use up.   This isn't exactly a recipe - since it the amount of ingredients will really depend on how large your pizza is and it's easy to 'eyeball' the amounts of ingredients on a pizza.  But this combination of flavors is absolutely perfect together.  Honestly - I think it could be my favorite pizza ever (and that is coming from someone how has eaten a lot of pizza!). 
Basically I took one of the balls of homemade pizza dough that I made previously and froze.  I let that rise and shaped the dough.  Cover the pizza with a layer of pesto sauce, then mozzarella, diced grilled chicken, marinated artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes.   Pre-heat your pizza stone in the oven at 500 degrees for 30 minutes.  Slide this pizza in (I use parchment paper, since I don't have a pizza peel) and bake until cheese is bubbly and dough is crisp (around 10-12 minutes).    Enjoy!
