Mediterranean Grilled Chicken and Roasted Red Pepper Pizza with Feta and Balsamic Glaze

Mediterranean Grilled Chicken and Roasted Red Pepper Pizza with Feta and Balsamic Glaze
Up next we have a Mediterranean themed pizza with marinated grilled chicken, roasted red peppers, feta and a balsamic glaze! The chicken is marinated in a tasty mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and oregano before being grilled and sliced for the pizza, and I have to say that this chicken is so tasty that you could eat it as a main all by itself. The flavour trio of the roasted red peppers, feta and balsamic glaze is the star of the show with it's an amazing combination of sweet, salty and tart that will set your taste buds a fire with delight! This pizza goes perfectly with a side of tzatziki and you can even dip the crust into it for those that like dipping their crusts!
