Delicious Chicken and Vegetable Pizza

This chicken pizza is a great way to get your vegetables, and if you choose a low fat crust, part skim dairy products, and a lighter quantity of cheese, it is also one that will be pretty healthy. That is two great things in one chicken and mushroom pizza recipe!

Your family will love it, too. When is the last time your kids asked for more servings of their veggies? Just remember to use fresh, high quality ingredients and avoid canned ones. There is a real taste difference when the recipe is done. Using a premade crust makes the cooking go faster, so you can have fresh baked pizza, even after a long day at work.

Once your pizza crust has been browned, it is time to add your cheese, chicken and vegetables, along with some basil. The pizza just needs to bake them, until the edges of the crust are golden brown and the cheese has melted attractively over the top. This delicious feast is then ready to serve to your hungry family, and it is sure to go down a real treat with them. This is quite a simple pizza. You can use a readymade pizza crust, and the toppings are also easy to come by. They are also easy to mix and match if you want to swap one ingredient for another, or use up some cooked meat or vegetables in the refrigerator. Just add all the toppings you want and then bake the pizza to perfection.

Photo Description:

This pizza is appealing and colorful, as you can see in the picture, and anytime you serve this for dinner the family is sure to be impressed. Forget ordering in pizza or cooking a frozen one, and instead try making your own, because for just a few minutes of work you will end up with something oozing with fresh flavors and much nicer than anything you could get readymade. This one, with its chicken, veggies and cheese, might be simple but the flavor of the finished pizza is well-rounded, and this is a recipe you will want to make again and again.
