Healthy Recipe: Chicken Tortilla Pizza

April 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 191

Before you reach for the phone to order pizza drenched with saturated fat and sodium, try my chicken tortilla pizza. This is a recipe I make when I know everyone in my family is going to be running in different directions. It's so easy to make them ahead of time. They'll keep for several days in the fridge so everyone can just reheat them when they come home, or store them in the freezer for later. You can also cut them up and grab a slice for a quick snack, satisfying those pizza cravings without all the fat and calories.

CHICKEN TORTILLA PIZZA

1 whole wheat flour tortilla

¼ cup part skim mozzarella cheese

1/3 cooked, shredded chicken

¼ cup pizza sauce

¼ cooked green pepper

Preheat oven to broil. Poke tortilla with a fork several times on both sides. Lightly spray tortilla on both sides with olive oil cooking spray or an olive oil spritzer. Place on cookie sheet and put under broiler until the tortilla just starts to brown. Flip the tortilla and crisp the other side. Remove from oven. Add sauce, cheese, chicken, and vegetables. Return to broiler and cook just until the cheese begins to melt.
