This easy gourmet chicken pizza recipe is made with a premade crust, baked chicken, fresh arugula, pancetta, and finished with a balsamic glaze. My husband said that this was the best pizza that he's ever eaten. True story.

A Great Pizza Starts with A Great Crust
Gourmet pizza is definitely worth the effort to make, but what if you could whip it up in half the time without sacrificing quality and taste? I've partnered with Table5 Pizza to show you how to make a simple gourmet recipe with healthy ingredients using their deliciously different cornmeal crust pizza.
What sets Table5 frozen artisanal pizzas apart from the rest? They start with a cornmeal crust and prepare them in small batches using simple, top-quality ingredients.
Table5 pizza company was born out of a partnership between Table 5 restaurant and Vicolo® cornmeal crust pizzas in the San Francisco Bay area. You can read more about Table5 and where to order your own frozen pies by checking out their website.
Table5 has a great selection of pizzas including Spinach and Feta, Italian Sausage with Roasted Onions, Goat Cheese with herbs, Grilled Chicken, and Uncured Pepperoni. These are a few of their tasty options. Table5 is not your typical frozen pizza. It actually tastes like it's been whipped up from scratch.
For my recipe creation, I used the Four Cheese Pizza made with a blend of artisan cheeses.
You get a protein and nutrition boost from the diced chicken and arugula. This combo together, along with a few flavor-enhancing ingredients makes this recipe a great one-dish dinner.
