Pizza, healthy? Start with chicken breast strips, which have minimal saturated fat, making them a more nutrient-rich choice than sausage and pepperoni. Cook off your own boneless, skinless chicken for the strips, or buy time-saving bags of precooked chicken strips. Whether you use full-fat cheese or reduced-fat versions, they all provide an ample boost of calcium for bone and tooth health. Convenient prebaked whole-wheat pizza crusts are widely available, so getting more whole grains every day is easier.

Makes 1 pizza (8 slices, 1 slice per serving)

Ingredients

1 whole-wheat prebaked pizza crust (12-15 inches)
12 ounces cooked chicken strips
1 bottle (18 ounces) barbecue sauce, any flavor and variety
1 ½ cups thinly sliced red onion
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded provolone cheese

Directions

1.    Preheat oven according to pizza crust package directions.

2.    Toss ½ cup of barbecue sauce with cooked chicken strips.

3.    Spread remaining barbecue sauce on pizza crust.

4.    Top with chicken strips, sliced onions and shredded cheese.

5.    Bake according to pizza crust package directions, until all ingredients are hot throughout.
