Who says pizza can’t be healthy? This recipe is the real deal!

Love pizza but trying to keep your eating in check? This is one of those few times you really can have it all. This recipe is delicious and a new staple in my house!

This pizza recipe not only tastes amazing, it’s a nutritious meal that comes in at under 600 calories for a three large, filling slices (half the pizza). And the secret to it’s amazing taste for the calories? It’s the crust made with greek yogurt, which has a far better taste than any store-bought crust.

Crust: 
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup non-fat, plain Greek yogurt

Meanwhile, prep toppings.

Toppings:
2 tbsp olive oil
basil and pizza seasoning to taste
4 oz. grilled chicken breast, sliced into thin strips
1/2 cup leafy spinach
1 small roma tomato, sliced or chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced into thin strips

Once pizza crust is cooked, remove from oven, but leave oven on. Top the crust with olive oil and seasonings, then spinach, chicken, tomato, pepper, onion and cheese.

Place back in the oven for approximately 10 minutes, or until peppers and onions have started to brown.
