Simple Suppers: Chicken & veggie pizza on whole wheat crust

Last week, we decided to make a pizza out of just what we had in the fridge or freezer. I always keep Trader Joe's Whole Wheat Pizza Dough on hand. It's only 99 cents a bag, so I'll buy 3-4 bags at a time and freeze them. We also had a Greek-seasoned grilled chicken breast that we'd used the night before for pitas, and plenty of veggies.

You don't need a recipe to make a pizza unless you're a full-on jack-ass. But, since I'm a sweet gal, I'll tell you what it consists of. Thinly spread whole wheat dough, seasoned with olive oil, salt, garlic powder and parmesan cheese. You can pre-bake it a bit before you add the toppings, maybe about 10 minutes on 350. Once it's risen a bit, but still soft, pull it out and add your toppings. We used: thinly sliced chicken, caramelized onions, fresh tomatoes, pesto, chopped garlic and mozzarella. Bake it for another 5-10 minutes at the same temp, depending on how crispy you like your crust.

Belly up & enjoy!
