Kale, Chicken & Goat Cheese Pizza & Contest (*Closed*)

December 5, 2011

in Blog, Contests & Giveaways, News, Facts, Fitness, Pizza

So you probably remember I did a review last week on Cookin’ Greens.  I hadn’t tried it before, but I was sent some coupons so I gave it a whirl. I must say, I’m a new fan! Great quality, and its not like the typical block of frozen spinach that I would normally get!

As I mentioned, I have a new recipe and contest.

Kale, Chicken & Goat Cheese Pizza

Honestly, I didn’t even taste greens in the pizza at all! Perhaps its because of the strong flavor of the pesto?  I don’t know what it was!  If your kids can get over the green color, they may even be a fan of kale on their pizza!

Kale, Chicken & Goat Cheese Pizza (gluten free)

Makes 1 serving

1 brown rice tortilla (I used Food for Life brand) Could also use a whole grain or low carb tortilla
1 Tbsp pesto (store bought or homemade)
3 oz pre-cooked chicken breast, chopped in pieces (I used rotisserie chicken)
30 grams light goat cheese
3/4 cup Cookin’ Greens Kale
1/2 cup red pepper, sliced

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place your frozen Cookin’ Greens in a microwave safe bowl, add 1-2 Tbsp water and microwave for 60 seconds. Meanwhile, spread pesto on tortilla, add chicken, goat cheese, kale and red pepper.  Place in oven directly on the rack and bake for 15 minute or until golden around the edges and crispy.
