Lisa’s Luxury Pizza

Lisa’s Luxury Pizza

 In my defence I have not named ANY of the recipes after myself and the only reason I am calling it this is that after I told my mother about what I had for dinner the night I ate this pizza she said, “What luxurious toppings”.

Serves 4

1 Batch of the whole wheat pizza dough

1 Batch of the pesto sauce

4 Plum tomatoes, sliced (1/4 inch thickness)

2 Grilled chicken breasts, cut into cubes

1 140 g package of low fat goat cheese

Salt

Pepper

– Prepare the pizza crust as listed previously

–  While the pizza is baking you can grill the chicken or do this ahead of time.

– After the pizza dough has baked for 12 minutes, top it with the pesto sauce.

– Then top with the tomato slices, season with salt and pepper.

– Top with the grilled chicken and then top with the goat cheese.

– Bake at 425 for another 11 to 12 minutes; let stand for 5 minutes.

Notes:

  1. If you are grilling the chicken as the pizza dough is baking in the oven, under cook the chicken slightly because it is going to bake in the oven.
  2. I am so pleased to announce that the reduced fat goat is just as delicious as the original which is actually insane considering that 40% of the fat has been removed.
  3. I tried to slice the goat cheese for this recipe but it was too soft so I just crumbled it.
  4. If you want slices of goat cheese try putting it in the freezer for about 15 minutes to firm it up.
  5. This recipe can be labour intensive but the pesto sauce and chicken can be made ahead of time.
  6. If you are going to grill the chicken ahead of time do not undercook the chicken (you could get really sick).
  7. Please try this recipe; it turned out amazing!
