Quick chicken pizza

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 thin 23 cm pizza base (dinner plate size)
  • 2 tablespoons salt-reduced tomato-based pasta sauce or paste
  • 1 cup (30 g) baby spinach leaves
  • 1/2 large red onion, peeled, finely sliced and separated
  • 100 g cooked or BBQ chicken breast, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 small red capsicum, seeded and sliced in thin strips
  • 12 small whole or 6 large halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup grated reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
  • Basil leaves, to serve

Method

1. Preheat oven to 220 °C (200 °C fan-forced). 

2. Spread tomato paste evenly over pizza base. Top with spinach leaves, sliced onion, chicken, capsicum strips and cherry tomatoes. Sprinkle with cheese and place on a baking tray, pizza stone or wire rack. Bake for 5 minutes until cheese is melted then cover with foil to prevent burning. Bake for a further 5 minutes until base is crisp. 

3. Sprinkle with roughly torn basil leaves on top to serve.

Hint

Use mini bases, pita or wholegrain English muffins for individual pizzas.

Notes

  • For a Mediterranean chicken pizza add drained fat-free sundried tomatoes, fat-free marinated artichokes and eggplant.
