Greek Chicken Pizza
Makes 12 servings 

I've yet to master the art of making pizza. It's been on my cooking to-do list for quite some time, so this weekend, I'm gathering these ingredients, getting into the kitchen and whipping up the perfect pie. This recipe, courtesy Muir Glen, yields a tasty, healthy Greek Chicken Pizza. I like that the ingredients list is small, and I can easily substitute whatever toppings I want to alter the recipe each time. Besides, everyone knows that the secret to great pizza lies in the crust and the sauce!

Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Start to Finish: 1 Hour
