Pizza seems to have an almost primal draw, with people in all cultures eating some form of the dish. Of course, regardless of its widespread appeal, pizza has never been known as a “healthy” offering, because of the fact that it’s typically high in processed carbs and saturated fats. With this dish, we’ve lightened it up by using our own homemade pesto, chicken, and a host of veggies – all on a whole wheat tortilla. If you like pizza, you’ll certainly come back for seconds of this thin-crusted alternative.
Season chicken with salt and pepper, preheat a non-stick pan on medium heat, lightly coat with spray and add the seasoned chicken. Sauté until lightly browned all over and cooked all the way through, stirring occasionally. Set aside. Preheat oven at 205°C.
Lightly coat a baking sheet with spray and place the tortilla shell on the tray. Spread the pesto base evenly around the shell leaving the outside inch free for the crust. Combine all the other ingredients except for the cheese in a mixing bowl and toss until mixed together. Spread evenly covering the pesto. Top with the cheese and bake until cheese is melted and shell is lightly toasted (about 10 minutes). Serves 1 large or 2 small.
