Chicken And Spinach Tortilla Pizza
This recipe is delicious, really fast (about 10 minutes), only 330 calories very high in protein and low fat. When you don't feel like cooking and just crave junk this can save you from the sin ;)
As you all know, my favorite meal plan right now is the Metabolic Cooking which will allow you to eat carbohydrates at specific times on the day in order to boost your metabolism, so I got this tortilla pizza for lunch. It is also recommended to use spices to make your food tastier. I got inspired by all their tasty fat burning recipes to make this one !
Ingredients for one tortilla pizza :
- 1 Whole Wheat Tortilla (I like the olive oil ones as they're healthier, take the 110 calorie ones)
- 1 small Chicken Breast
- 1 tbs of Pizza Sauce
- ¼ cup of Shredded Mozzarella
- 1 tbs chopped Red Onion
- 1 tbs of sliced Marinated Artichokes
Directions (5 minutes prep, 5 minutes cooking) :
0. Pre-heat the oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit
2. Place your whole wheat tortilla on the Pizza Pan and spread pizza sauce all over it;
3. Add some pre-cooked chicken breast cubes (I cooked mine in Extra Virgin Coconut Oil sooo yummy and cubes cook faster);
4. Slice the marinated artichokes and the red onion and spread over the pizza;
5. Finely chop the spinach, mix it with the mozzarella cheese and add on the pizza;
6. Sprinkle fresh herbs over (I used thyme and savory but basil would be good also);
7. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the cheese is golden and bubbling (no sooner!) and the edges of the tortilla are lightly browned. Slice and serve.
