Celebrate National Pizza Day with Pesto Chicken Flatbread Pizza

Busy day? Busy week? Busy everything? Well, I feel ya. I have been non-stop working and school and it feels as if it will go on forever. BUT, it doesn't have to when you involve food! During my busy weeks, I like to do some meal prep so I can actually enjoy my meals without the stress of time I would need to make them. So a quick and delicious meal I have been obsessing over all started from a national food holiday- National Pizza Day! 

Now, pizza isn't thee best meal to have but it definitely tastes amazing and has endless ingredient combinations. So when I think of pizza, I don't think to order take out-- I think home-made, made ahead of time, leftover flatbread pizza! YUM.

Cold pizza is the best pizza, amirite? 

Anyways, I have been obsessing over this pizza combo-- pesto, mozzarella, sun dried tomatoes and chicken OR for vegetarians, pesto, mozzarella, and cherry tomatoes! Simple. Delicious. AND my perfect grab and go meal.
