Chicken & Sun Dried Tomato Pizza

This recipe is adapted from Rachel Ray, and is great for when you want to shake things up for dinner! You can purchase whole wheat pizza dough, or use 8" whole wheat flat breads for the crust.

1/2 lb cooked chicken breast (or tenders)
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons grated parmigiana-reggiano
2 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup part skim ricotta cheese
8 sun dried tomatoes in oil, drained and sliced
1 cup of part skim shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 of sauteed baby bella mushrooms
1/4 cup of sauteed yellow onion
Salt & pepper
12 fresh basil leaves, torn or thinly chopped

Brush pizza dough or flat bread with olive oil, parm cheese, salt and pepper. In a separate pan saute chicken with olive oil, garlic and salt/pepper. Remove from heat and slice into small pieces. Add chicken, mushrooms, and onions to crust. Dob spoonfuls of ricotta onto the pizza and spread with the back of the spoon. Add sliced sun dried tomatoes and shredded mozzarella cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 mins. Top with the shredded fresh basil (I highly recommend not skipping this step, it makes a huge difference!). ENJOY!!!!!!!
