A note about serious food allergies

First, you'll caramelize the onions, bringing out their natural sugars. Then, you cook the chicken and assemble the flatbread with two perfect elements: melty mozzarella and juicy grape tomatoes. Bake, top with pesto and arugula, and presto! Pesto chicken pizza.

    Caramelize the Onion
