Chicken Breast and Veggie Medley Pizza

Oftentimes, we think of Pizza as a 'no-no' when trying to lose weight, or when opting for a healthier lifestyle. Not exactly true! It all depends on what's on the pizza.

Here is one that is pretty healthy (even better than the recipe I posted earlier). It is another great alternative to pizza from your favorite pizza joint, loaded with toppings and a little twist to your traditional pizza.

4 slices of deli style, oven roasted chicken breast - diced
I small tomato - diced (Here is the twist. Use diced fresh tomato instead of tomato/marinara sauce)
1/8 of a small red onion - minced
1/4 of a medium green pepper - diced
8 biscuits (store bought biscuit dough)
2/3 of a cup of shredded reduced fat four cheese blend cheese
salt and pepper

Step 1: Prepare all your ingredients and flatten each biscuit to your desired thickness.

Step 2: Assemble the pizzas in the following order on a baking sheet - Tomatoes, onions, green peppers, chicken, cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper; and a quick spray (of cooking spray).

Step 3: Place in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 10- 15 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes and enjoy!

* If you are on Weight Watcher's like I am, each one is only 2 points.
** An excellent dish to prepare with the kids. I know my niece or nephew would love building this one with me.
