Pizza Pizza!

Who doesn't love a good pizza? I found this recipe on Cooking Light and was a little skeptical at first, especially since I couldn't remember ever having something that wasn't a "traditional" pizza. This is now one of our favorites... it's easy to make, pretty healthy, and best of all... absolutely delicious! This recipe makes 1-16" pizza or we have divided it into 3 mini-pizzas and frozen one. It freezes well!

Garlic Chicken Pizza
8 servings


2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 (16-ounce) Italian cheese-flavored pizza crust (such as Boboli)
1 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast (about 8 ounces)
1 cup chopped plum tomato
1 cup chopped mushrooms (I only used 1/2 cup, my husband doesn't care for them)
3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup (1 ounce) finely shredded fresh Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped green onions (I omitted)


-Preheat oven to 400°.
-Combine first 3 ingredients, stirring well with a whisk.
-Place crust on a baking sheet; brush vinegar mixture over crust.
-Top with chicken, tomato, and mushrooms; sprinkle with cheeses and green onions.

Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until cheeses melt.

(based on modifications; does not include crust)
