I could not find a reivew for this, and I apologize if it's redundant.

WOW, this was amazing. DH and DS were a bit leary of it. (DS: "Mom, grapes on pizza? Really?"), but it was SO good, definitely a keeper.

Changes I made: Joe's homemade WW pizza crust; homemade pesto from the freezer; leftover roasted chicken from Sunday night; four gloves of sliced garlic; a bit more cheese; and I baked the green onions on the pizza.

Chicken, Red Grape, and Pesto Pizza

Romano cheese, similar to Parmigiano-Reggiano, is a tangy contrast to the grapes.

1 (11-ounce) can refrigerated thin-crust pizza dough
Cooking spray
1/3 cup refrigerated pesto
1 1/2 cups seedless red grapes, halved
8 ounces shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons grated Romano cheese
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup sliced green onions

1. Preheat oven to 425°.

2. On a lightly floured surface, pat dough into a 12-inch circle; gently place dough on a pizza pan coated with cooking spray. Spread pesto evenly over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border around edges. Arrange grapes evenly over dough; top evenly with chicken. Top with garlic and mozzarella; sprinkle with Romano and pepper. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Sprinkle with onions. Cut into 12 wedges.

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 2 wedges)
