Does this pizza topping sound ok?

I have limited options for ingredients but I was thinking of roasting some chicken and capsicum and making my own pizza base and having pesto and the grilled chicken and capsicum and cheese on it.

Do you think these flavours will work together and be ‘enough’ to make a yummy pizza, or should I look at adding another ingredient or two?

  1. add some grilled or sauteed red onion and garnish with chopped fresh herbs (use whatever is i the pesto, i'm guessing basil...?) and you're good to go!

    1. Last night I made pizza. Two of the ingredients I added were chopped Kalamata olives and shaved Vidalia onions. Also some fennel seed on the oiled crust. I usually use rosemary but didn't have any.

      1. On another pizza, try some smoked oysters and fresh sliced green onions.

        Put a dried white cheese on top of the provolone/mozzarella at the end of the cook.

        Oh my, it is good.

        1. Yes, if that's what you have. Pizza has no bounds.

          1. If I have it on hand, I love some arugula put on after it comes out of the oven. But, of course, I'm heading for a 12-step program for arugula-itis.

              I've got it too. Take ibuprofin for it and call me in the morning.
