This was so simple to make! It was also very, very good. I highly recommend using the smoked mozzarella, it really adds a tremendous element to the pizza. The original recipe calls for grilling the pizza, it was however November and while my husband will gladly grill in the cold, this was just as easy to put in the oven. Just heat it up until is warm.
I think this would be even tastier if you had leftover grilled chicken you could shred for the topping. Likely we will try this again next summer on the grill since we liked it so much.
