Once a week Grey and I have “pizza night.” I never thought that this would happen when we got married because Grey is quite health conscious, and pizza usually doesn’t fall in line with his healthy options list. Somehow, he requests this pizza every week. This recipe starts with a store bought crust from Alvarado street bakery…which is delicious!It is a sprouted grain pizza crust that is so light and flaky when it comes out of the oven…it makes this entire dinner! Then we use our favorite sun-dried tomato spread instead of pizza sauce. This adds a super “tomatoey” flavor to this pizza. We use this spread for a lot of different Italian style meals.
Then we add all the veggies: mushrooms, olives, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, etc. Add some cooked chicken breast, and then top with tons of spinach, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. It only takes about 20 minutes to bake and makes eight slices for a regular serving size, and 4 slices for Grey and I’s serving size ;). This recipe is totally flexible, so if you don’t like olives–leave ‘em out! I do suggest using this crust and sun-dried tomato spread. They are delish!

Add olives, mushrooms, garlic, onion, and chicken making sure to layer each ingredient evenly over crust. Top with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
