“Fans of white pizza will love this version featuring chicken, veggies, fresh basil and Alfredo sauce.”

Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon yellow cornmeal
    • 1 portion Whole-Grain Pizza Crust (see associated recipe)
    • ⅓ cup purchased light Alfredo pasta sauce combined with 1 teaspoon snipped fresh basil or purchased basil pesto
    • 1 cup chopped or shredded cooked chicken breast (5 ounces)
    • ¾ cup cherry tomatoes, halved or 2 medium roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
    • ½ medium zucchini, thinly sliced
    • ¾ cup shredded reduced-fat Italian cheese blend (3 ounces) or 3 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
    • ¼ cup small fresh basil leaves or shredded fresh basil
    • Freshly ground black pepper (optional)

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease a 14-inch round baking stone, 12-inch pizza pan or large baking sheet (see Tip). Sprinkle with cornmeal; set aside. On a lightly floured surface, roll Whole-Grain Pizza Crust dough into a 12-inch circle. Transfer to the prepared baking stone. Prick dough all over with a fork. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.
  • 2 Spread Alfredo sauce over hot crust to within 1 inch of the edge. Top with chicken, tomatoes and zucchini; sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes more or until cheese is melted and vegetables are softened.
  • 3 Before serving, sprinkle with basil and, if desired, black pepper.
  • Tip: For easy cleanup and transfer, line baking stone with parchment paper. Use it to slide pizza on parchment to desired surface.
