Green Pizza

Green Pizza or Salad Pizza

I really was not in the mood to make dinner last night and almost stopped at the Vietnamese Asian Cafe and ordered Spring Rolls to go. But I went home and forced myself to make something I already had. It didn’t really take that long. But I was in no mood and neglected to take photos. The above is a slice of my lunch today. The cheese started to cool on the long walk back from the microwave. So it isn’t the lovely pie I pulled out of the oven. But it still looks nice enough.

4 slices bacon,
1 chicken breast,
Onion to taste,
Garlic to taste,
Butter or diet butter, (I use smart balance light)
Spinach or mixed salad greens,
3/4 cup Cheese of your choice, (I used shredded Italian blend)
Crust of choice (I tried ‘Artisan’ brand, it was okay)

Cut up bacon to one inch pieces, (kitchen shears work great)
Mince onion, mince garlic, dice chicken.
Start cooking bacon pieces,
Put a layer of butter on your crust, spread minced garlic over it, put a sprinkling of your cheese down.
Remember to stir bacon between the above steps, now drain part of the grease and add onion.
Add a layer of spinach or mixed greens, (used 50/50 spinach/spring mix), sprinkling of cheese.
Add chicken, cook until bacon and chicken are all done, spread around top, sprinkle the last of the cheese.
Top with a Pizza Grinder or seasoning or cayenne or leave alone. Whatever makes you happy.

Put in preheated oven, 425 degrees, cook 8 – 12 minutes.

I liked it but the crust isn’t anything special. I think I like straight spinach better. I have friends who love arugala on pizza. I also do a variation of this where I use a large tortilla wrap for crust. I think it is better. It cooks in about 3 – 5 minutes at 400 Degrees and makes a lovely crispy thin crust. It also has way less calories.
