Quick, Simple and lower calorie Chicken Florentine Pizza!

14oz refrigerated whole wheat pizza dough
6oz of store bought rotisserie chicken or precooked chicken breast
1/2cup reduced fat ricotta cheese
1/4cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese
2tbsp jarred sun dried tomatoes, drained from oil
1-2cups of fresh spinach
1 clove of garlic – minced
1tsp Italian seasoning mix
1.5tsp olive oil – divided
Flour (for working surface)

Allow pizza dough to sit in package on counter for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 425 degrees with baking sheet in the oven on the middle rack. Add a 1/2tsp of olive oil to a preheated small sauté pan over medium heat. Once oil is hot, add in HALF of the garlic and quickly sauté until fragrant. Next add in the spinach and cook until wilted. Remove to a paper towel to drain any excess liquid.

Lightly flour a piece of parchment paper and stretch dough out to desired thickness, add more flour as necessary to keep it from sticking to hands/paper. Pierce several holes in the dough with a fork. Next using a pastry brush, cover the entire top surface of dough with 1tsp of olive oil mixed with the remaining minced garlic. Smear the ricotta cheese onto the dough and then top it with the shredded mozzarella. Sprinkle half of the Italian season over the cheese and then add the spinach. Top with chicken, tomatoes and the rest of the Italian seasoning mix. Slide parchment paper onto preheated baking sheet and bake 18-22 minutes or until crust is golden brown rotating a few times to ensure even cooking. Slice & enjoy!

1/8tsp minced garlic

Mix together soy sauce, pineapple juice, ketchup, sugar & garlic together in a small bowl until sugar is dissolved. Reserve 2 teaspoons of marinade in a small bowl and set aside for basting later. Season both sides of chicken with fresh ground pepper and place chicken, red pepper & onion in zip lock bag. Pour remaining marinade into bag, turn to coat and then refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat and grill chicken 6-8 minutes per side or until cooked through depending on breast thickness basting occasionally with remaining marinade. I added the red pepper to the grill at the same time as the chicken and then I added the onion/pineapple to the grill after I flipped the chicken. Serve on a whole wheat sandwich round with a few pieces of spinach!
