Pesto Pizza-Very Tasty

This is one of the pizza combinations we made for our recent birthday celebration
Pesto Pizza
1 pound chicken breast tenders
1 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
3 tbsp. pesto
1 cup mozzarella cheese
2 medium zucchini, halved twice and thinly slice
yellow, red, orange, and green bell peppers, thinly sliced
mushrooms, thinly sliced

Pizza dough: 3 and a half cups flour
1 cup warm water
2 tbsp. yeast
2 tbsp. honey
¼ cup olive oil
½ tsp of salt

Mix ingredients for pizza dough ahead of time and let rise for 1/2 hours. Cook chicken for a few minutes, in a little bit of oil over medium high heat, and sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Before it is cooked through, add zucchini. Add more Italian seasoning and cook until chicken is done and zucchini is tender.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray round or 12 by 8 pan. Put pizza dough on pan. Bake for 6 minutes on 450 degrees. Spread pesto evenly over pizza crust. Top with chicken/zucchini mixture, peppers, and mushrooms. Put cheese on top. Bake for 8-9 minutes or until cheese melts.
