Chicken Pesto Pizza??

I live north of Boston but am willing to go into the city for a huge craving of mine. Can anyone recommend a place that serves chicken pesto pizza? I have searched high and low in the Merrimack Valley area with no luck.

  1. Bertucci's has pesto and grilled chicken as toppings, so you can create your own!

    1. I like The Dogwood's "Magnolia" brick oven chicken pesto pizza. Cheesy and pesto-y with a very crispy thin crust. If that's what you're looking for, it will be sure to hit the spot. It's in Jamaica Plain across from Forest Hills station. Not sure it's worthy of a trip from Merrimack Valley, but you can always go to the Arboretum and make a day of it.

      1. Maybe give Mario's in North Reading a call. They are on Rte 28 in the small strip mall near the intersection of rt 28 and Park Street.They have a chicken alfredo pizza, maybe they can do a pesto. Good, thin crust pizza. Their pizza is crispy bottom, oily cheese- so good.

        1. I seem to remember Boston Beer Works having one. It's not my favorite place, but a quick check of the menu ( shows they have a pesto pizza, and you can add either grilled or fried chicken as a topping.

          Any of the Upper Crust locations could also do one as well.

          1. The house pizza at J.J. Foley's Cafe in the South End has a nice drizzle of pesto on it, a very thin crust, kind of an app-sized oval pie. You could add chicken to this. Great old tavern atmosphere, nice prices. An unusual value for the neighborhood.
