You know that typical “get to know you” question you often get asked at functions? “If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?” Well, I know who’d be on my list: the fine lad who invented pizza. They can sit right next to me and we can chat about the perfect ratio of hot doughy bread to chunky tomato sauce to gooey cheese. Oh, gosh. THE CHEESE.
I’ve beeen working hard to eat healthy lately, so since I started craving pizza (and yes, cheese), I decided to give it a healthy spin by omitting cheese and tomato sauce. It’s still a pizza, ok? It was so easy to make and this version only needs a few ingredients! All of my ingredients were bought from Trader Joe’s, but feel free to replace them with homemade versions or your own favorite brand.
-1 package of Garlic & Herb pizza dough
-1/2 jar of Pesto & Quinoa
-1/4 cup of mushrooms, sliced
-10 oz cooked chicken
-1/4 cup flour
Yields: 1 12″ pizza
-Leave dough out for 30 minutes.
-Preheat oven for 450 degrees.
-Lightly line flat surface (I used a clean cutting board) with flour. This will prevent the dough from sticking to the board.
-Top pizza with desired amount of chicken and mushrooms.
-Move pizza to oven safe pan lined with lightly greased aluminum foil. Bake at 450 degrees for 8 minutes, or until edges are crispy.
