Chicken, Brie, and Garlic Pizza

I love pizza!  If I were stranded on a desert island and could only eat one thing, it would be pizza!  Of course, I would have to have my pizza delivered from a gourmet pizza place so that I could eat pizza like this one – lol.  This makes enough sauce for 2 pizzas, but after I made the first one, Al and I thought that it wasn’t nearly garlicky enough, so for the second pizza, I stirred a heaping teaspoon of crushed garlic into it, and that was much better.  And, as always, I used an unbaked pizza crust from Papa Murphy’s called a “skin” – you can make your own crust if you like.

Chicken and Brie garlic Pizza

Sauce:
1 15 oz can chicken broth
1/4 c low-fat milk
2 t garlic powder
1 t dried thyme
3 T cornstarch
salt and pepper to taste

Heat broth, adding seasonings.  Mix milk and cornstarch and add to broth, bring to a boil to allow to thicken considerably – stirring constantly to prevent lumps.  Spread 1/2 recipe in a thin layer onto the unbaked pizza crust.

Pizza:
1 large onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
8 oz cooked chicken breast, chopped
8 oz brie, chopped
2 T fresh thyme

Saute the onion in a large frying pan that has been coated with non-stick cooking spray until the onion starts to turn transparent, and the edges start to brown.  Cool.  Spread onions, bell pepper strips, and chopped chicken over the sauce on the pizza crust, then add the brie and fresh thyme.  Bake at 425 for 18 minutes or until browned to your liking.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
