Chicken Asparagus Pesto Pizza

April 14, 2008 at 5:06 pm 7 comments

T and I usually communicate during the day by email. I can almost time his email when the clock rolls around to 130pm that he’ll ask me whats for dinner? I made a couple suggestions but he immediately said PIZZA so being a good wifey that’s what I made. Since I am trying to be healthy these days I rolled out my dough pretty thin (no extra calories from doughy crust) and incorporated a veggie and protein. I wouldn’t say its the healthiest thing I could have made but it sure beats the greasy calories of Pizza Hut by far!

(Recipe and photos from me!)

Makes 8 servings
Calories/serving = ~180 (


grilled chicken strips, cut into cubes
1/4 cup pesto sauce
1/2 bunch asparagus, chopped into 1″ pieces
homemade pizza dough
1-2 cups mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 400F. Roll out pizza dough.

Mix pesto sauce, asparagus and chicken together in a medium bowl. Add to pizza dough and top with mozzarella cheese.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

It was really good and I’ll definitely make it again!

    wow, not too many calories! My diet lately consists mostly of brown rice, lentils, veggies, and oatmeal (gotta look hot to see the fam in May lol) This looks like an uber tasty treat to break up the monotony!
