1 pizza


  • 1 pound whole-wheat pizza dough

  • 1 ½ cups shredded cooked chicken breast (8 ounces)

  • ¾ cup pizza sauce, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • All-purpose flour for rolling dough

  • 1 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese or 4 ounces fresh mozzarella, torn into pieces

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided

  • ¼ cup thinly sliced fresh basil


  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Let dough stand at room temperature while you prepare the toppings.

  2. Stir chicken, 1/4 cup pizza sauce, garlic powder and crushed red pepper together in a small bowl.

  3. Roll the pizza dough out on a lightly floured surface to the approximate size of the baking sheet. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Spread the remaining 1/2 cup pizza sauce over the dough. Spread the chicken mixture over the sauce. Top with mozzarella and 1/4 cup Parmesan. Bake until browned and bubbling, 16 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle with basil and the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan. Cut into 10 pieces.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
