Quick chicken pizza
  • 1 thin 23cm pizza base (dinner plate size)
  • 2 tablespoons no-added-salt tomato paste
  • 1 cup (30g) baby spinach leaves
  • ½ large red onion, finely chopped
  • 100g cooked or BBQ chicken breast, thinly sliced
  • ½ small red capsicum, seeded and diced
  • 6 large cherry tomatoes halved
  • ½ cup grated reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
  • basil leaves, to serve
  1. Preheat oven to 220ºC (200ºC fan-forced).
  2. Spread tomato paste evenly over pizza base. Top with spinach leaves, sliced onion, chicken, capsicum strips and cherry tomatoes. Sprinkle with cheese and place on a baking tray, pizza stone or wire rack.
  3. Bake for 5 minutes until cheese is melted then cover with foil to prevent burning. Bake for a further 5 minutes until base is crisp.
  4. Sprinkle with roughly torn basil leaves on top to serve.
