Pizza! Rosemary, chicken, havarti, onions, tomatoes

We are starting an exciting excursion into making homemade pizza! My boss gave us a pizza stone and a book on breads. Our first adventure turned out delicious.

Crust: I'll have to come back and repost the crust recipe. You can also always use pre-made or frozen crust.

Roll crust out to 14 inches.

Top with:
1/3 cup pizza sauce (we used contadina and used very little b/c that's what we like)
Havarti cheese (can you ever have too much cheese?)
1 sprig of fresh rosemary: pull rosemary off and sprinkle over cheese
1.5 chicken breasts: season salt and pan seared first. diced up small.
Grape tomatoes: cut in halves
Red onion: diced up

Preheat oven to 500 with pizza stone
Remove pizza stone from oven, sprinkle cornmeal lightly on stone
Lay rolled out dough on stone. Spread toppings on stone.
Bake at 500+ oven for about 8 minutes.

Rating: Really delicious. We thought we should have added some fresh garlic. It was outstanding though and we can't wait to make more pizza variations!
