Hello guys
It's pizza time.Presenting the perfect T.V dinner fresh out of your oven !.As always, this too is an endeavor by greenhouse cuisine on low fat recipes,so grab your glasses, sit back and enjoy this delicious low fat pizza on a weekend ,watching your favorite show, "without feeling guilty".Lets get it started.

will make one medium size pizza

  • Medium size pizza dough  (for a home made low fat pizza dough recipe follow the link: pizza dough)
  • part skimmed mozzarella cheese -1/8part of 8oz pack shredded 
  • 1 chicken Brest  
  • marinara sauce or pizza sauce -1/4cup 
  • half an onion -sliced 
  • Italian seasoning ,fresh or dried -1tsp
  • 2 tsp olive oil 
  • corn meal 1tsp
  • salt as per taste 
 The quantities of above ingredients totally depends on the taste ,feel free to add or omit items as per your choice .One important thing i want to mention here is that the taste of your pizza depends directly to the sauce ,I use marinara because it has an extra punch to it ,i also have a low fat pizza sauce recipe that i will post later, but if one wants to keep it real quick then a good brand store bought sauce is the best option .Follow the diagrams step by step for the recipe given below:

  • Place the dough on a work surface and start shaping the pizza ,if using a store bought crust then skip this step.
  • Drop a tsp of olive oil in the center and brush  crust thoroughly , transfer the dough on a baking sheet sprinkled with corn meal .
  • Dice and cook the chicken well in a non stick pan adding herb and salt as per taste  
  • Shred the cheese and slice the onions lengthwise
  • Spread the 1/4 cup sauce evenly on the oiled crust taking care at the ends, use more sauce if you want a juicer version  .
  • once the sauce is evenly coating the crust, top up with chicken and onions
  • Sprinkle cheese ,remember a little goes a long way  .
  • Preheat oven on broil. Bake the pizza for first 5 mins on broil.
  • Reduce the temperature to 375 F and bake for 20 min or till the crust looks golden brown .
  • Let cool and slice out .

The one shown above had a really crispy outside and chewy inside.Remember, crunchiness of the crust depends directly on the oven temperature and the amount of oil used ,although only 2 tsp oil was used in the whole preparation, it was distributed evenly over the surface area, so make sure to brush,brush and brush the crust throughly . I hope that you found this recipe useful .Thank you for visiting my blog - now listen closely , someone's calling! it's the baker inside you!Go try this recipe out and enjoy!
