Quick Chicken Pizza

Quick Chicken Pizza
  • Prep: 10
  • Cook: 10 mins
  • Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 23cm pizza base (dinner plate size)
  • 2 tbs no-added-salt tomato paste
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves
  • 1/2 large red onion, finely chopped
  • 100 g cooked or BBQ chicken breast, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red capsicum, seeded and diced
  • 6 large cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat mozzarella cheese, grated
  • basil leaves, to serve

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 220ºC (200ºC 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Sprinkle with roughly torn basil leaves on top to serve. 
Hint 
Use mini bases, pita or wholegrain English muffins for individual pizzas.

Variations

  • For a Mediterranean chicken pizza, add sundried tomatoes and marinated artichokes and eggplant. Go for the fat-free versions or drain well on a paper towel.
