Garlic Chicken Pizza

After a very busy few months, my husband and I finally found ourselves with no plans on a random Sunday.  Let’s make homemade pizza!  It’s the ultimate comfort food.  Snowy and cold weather = craving for comfort food.  Plus it’s the perfect way to slow down and spend quality time together.  We have a lot of fun in the kitchen and we get awesome pizza out of the deal.
