This healthy pizza recipe is inspired by the Vietnamese sandwich called banh mi. Spread on the pizza dough, the curry sauce adds just the right amount of Thai seasoning and spice.

  • 8 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed
  • 1 pound prepared pizza dough, preferably whole-wheat
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • 1½ teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup matchstick-cut English cucumber
  • 1 cup matchstick-cut carrots
  • 1 cup halved and sliced radishes
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for garnish
  • ½ cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Thai red, green or yellow curry paste
  • Lime wedges for serving

  1. Position rack in lower third of oven and place a large pizza stone or large rimless baking sheet on it; preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Place chicken in a medium saucepan and add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a clean cutting board and shred into bite-size pieces.
  3. Meanwhile, roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to a 14-inch circle. Transfer to the pizza stone (or baking sheet) and prick the dough all over with a fork to help keep it from puffing up as it bakes. Bake, flipping once, until lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Whisk vinegar and brown sugar in a large bowl to dissolve the sugar. Add cucumber, carrots, radishes, cilantro and the chicken; toss to coat. Combine mayonnaise and curry paste in a separate bowl and spread on the crust. Using a slotted spoon, top with the chicken mixture. Garnish the pizza with more cilantro and serve with lime wedges, if desired.

Fresh light twist on pizza I added a dash of sesame oil, siracha, salt and pepper to the topping on this pizza to give it more flavor. Without additional seasoning it would be fairly bland. Pros: Very healthy, lots of veggies, great texture Cons: Needed extra seasoning
