The perfect spin on your everyday chicken pizza!

Delicious grilled chicken pizza!

I had one of my best friends stay with me over the weekend, and we decided that we wanted to stay in and cook dinner instead of going out to eat and spending a lot of money. After searching for some tasty recipes she stumbled upon a low fat grilled chicken recipe that her sister had recommended. It was a simple recipe and the pizza turned out delicious! I ended with a lot of left over ingredients and ended up making it again two more nights!

What the recipe calls for: 

  • 1 lb prepared whole wheat pizza dough
  • 2 ounces chopped chicken breast
  • 1 cup chopped Roma tomatoes
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 oz goat cheese, crumbled

The perfect pizza recipe for a beginner cook!

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to about the size of the baking sheet. Transfer to the baking sheet. Bake until puffed and lightly crisped on the bottom, 8 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, spray a large nonstick skillet with nonfat cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add onion, chicken and crushed green pepper and cook, stirring, until the onion is beginning to brown, about 3 minutesSpread the onion mixture evenly over the crust and top with mozzarella and goat cheese. Bake until crispy and golden and the cheese is melted, 5-8 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with Roma tomato.

Steals & Deals 

Chicken breast was on sale again at Safeway Grocery Store for $1.69 lb. Then I found the Walmart brand True Value pizza dough for only $2.89, Roma tomatoes for $3.99 and goat cheese for $4.12 at Walmart as well. I already had a purple onion along with the mozzarella cheese. So this great pizza only cost me about $14.00, however I was able to make two other nights and I still have left over ingredients to make more!
