Please hold...

Apologies for the lack of blogging lately! Turns out wedding planning takes up a lot of a girl's free time - who knew?! That said, I did want to share this tasty gem with you - only the BEST PIZZA I'VE EVER MADE. It's funny, because I made this on a night when I was feeling totally lazy and didn't want to try that hard. Sometimes, laziness pays off :)

Sun Dried Tomato and Goat Cheese Pizza

1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
salt and pepper to taste
1 pound whole wheat pizza dough (I picked mine up from the Whole Foods Market pizza guys)
1/4 cup prepared pesto (I had some leftover from dinner a few nights before)
1 4-oz jar sun dried tomatoes, chopped
1 4-oz log goat cheese
5-6 fresh basil leaves, chopped

Pound chicken breast to 3/4 inch thickness and season with salt and pepper to taste. Grill on a grill pan until done. Set aside to rest, then cut into bite-sized pieces.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread out pizza dough on a baking stone or baking sheet and spread evenly with pesto, getting close to the edges. Bake in the oven until set and beginning to brown, about 8 minutes.

Remove pizza from oven and cover with sun dried tomatoes and goat cheese, then top with chicken. Bake an additional 4-5 minutes until goat cheese is melting and crust is golden. Remove from oven and top with fresh basil. Slice it up and enjoy!

See, it's so good we ate half of it before we could take a picture :)
