  • 1 whole wheat pizza crust or lavash bread
  • olive oil (1 TBS)
  • 1 small red onion, thinly
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped (optional)
  • 1 cup basil pesto sauce (homemade or store-bought)
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 can artichokes, quartered
  • 2 seasoned chicken breasts, prepared


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and mushrooms if using. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until caramelized.
  3. Spread basil pesto sauce over lavash bread or a whole-grain pizza crust. Top with caramelized onions and mushrooms, tomatoes, red pepper, chicken, and artichokes. Tear off chunks of mozzarella, and arrange evenly.
  4. Cook pizza according to crust package or recipes instructions. I like to finish out the pizza under the broiler for 1-2 minutes so that the cheese and crust turn golden brown.
