Pizza tends to get a bad rap as being unhealthy, but I’m going to show you that it doesn’t have to be. This pizza recipe is both delicious and heart healthy: Asian Chicken Pizza with Peanut Sauce. It features a whole wheat crust, a flavorful peanut sauce, Boar’s Head certified heart-healthy deli meats, vegetables and the perfect amount of mozzarella cheese.
With heart disease being the nation’s leading cause of death for both men and women, taking care of our hearts is one of the most important things we can do. Luckily, there is simple things we can do, such as eating well, that can make a difference in our heart health.
This pizza recipe keeps it healthy by using Boar’s Head EverRoast® Oven Roasted Chicken Breast, which is one of the Boar’s Head premium certified heart-healthy deli meats. Boar’s Head deli meats offer choices that are low in fat, saturated fat and cholesterol — and they can help make good-for-your-heart recipes with ease.
For the Asian Chicken Pizza with Peanut Sauce, you will need about 8 ounces of Boar’s Head EverRoast® Oven Roasted Chicken Breast per pizza that you are making. I found Boar’s Head at the deli counter at my local Smith’s store (Kroger affiliated store). You will want to ask for it to be sliced thick, about 1/2 – 3/4″. I bought about 1 pound which would give me enough to make two pizzas.
The chicken breast is cut into bite-sized pieces. One of the things I particularly like about using the Boar’s Head EverRoast® Oven Roasted Chicken Breast is that I didn’t have to cook the chicken — which saved a lot of time.
In a small saucepan, you will make the peanut sauce, which is used instead of traditional pizza sauce. It consists of peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar and other seasonings.
Next, you will thinly slice some onion and cut red bell pepper into small pieces. The onions and bell pepper are placed in a bowl with the chicken cubes and mixed with about 1 tablespoon of the peanut sauce.
Press out your favorite whole wheat pizza dough recipe (or a premade whole wheat dough), onto a pizza pan. Bake in the crust in the oven for about 10 minutes and then spread the peanut sauce on top of the crust. Top the peanut sauce with the chicken mixture.
Top your pizza with shredded mozzarella cheese and some roughly chopped peanuts.
Now your pizza is ready to bake!
When it’s finished baking, you have a heart-healthy chicken pizza.Print
