Greek Town Pizza
Low Calorie Recipe
Greek Town Pizza uses frozen bread dough filled with healthful toppings including spinach, chicken breast and cheeses.
1 pound frozen bread dough, thawed
10 ounces frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1 pound ground chicken breast, skinless
1 cup onions, chopped
1 cup bell peppers, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
15 ounces Italian style tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 cup fat free mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 cup fat free Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 375-degrees. Prepare a 12-inch pizza pan with cooking spray. Press dough into pan, forming the crust with one-inch edges. Prick crust with fork several times. Bake for ten minutes. Sprinkle spinach over crust.
In a skillet, cook chicken, onions, bell peppers, and garlic. Cook until chicken is no longer pink. Stir in tomato sauce and oregano. Spoon mixture over spinach in pan. Sprinkle cheeses over top. Bake for 25 minutes, or until crust is lightly brown.
Not all ground poultry is as healthy as one may think. Ground turkey or chicken often includes the skin and dark meat, adding a lot of fat and calories. Look for lean or breast on the label to ensure it includes only breast meat, which is much leaner.
