Chicken Alfredo and Spinach "Pizza"

Monday, March 21, 2011

Today is my weigh-in day and I lost 1.8 lbs for the week. Not bad of course, but I wanted to lose 2 lbs this week. For now, I will take what I can get. I had a few slip ups the past few days with eating more optional snacks or an extra meal than I should be eating so I really can't complain. I shouldn't be complaining at all. I will try harder this week.

This pizza turned out pretty good if you want a little pizza variety. I like to make my own Alfredo Sauce using light laughing cow cheese and half and half, instead of using the Walden Farms brand of Alfredo Sauce. I wish I could use more sauce because I loved the sauce (and there always seems to be never enough sauce lol), but I am trying to follow the guidelines and it just isn't possible to add more.  I would make this again, but I still love my pizza with marinara sauce. Feel free to use Walden Farms Alfredo sauce. I think it is 1 condiment for 2 tbsp. You could probably use 1/4 cup as 2 condiments and a tsp of Parmesan cheese as your third condiment. Just an idea. You will need to add a healthy fat as well if you use Walden Farms. Have a happy OP day everyone!


Chicken Alfredo and Spinach "Pizza"

Ingredients:
Crust
1 cup or 100 grams grated raw cauliflower (2 Greens)
1/4 cup egg beaters (1/8 Lean)
1/4 cup Reduced Fat 2% Mozzarella cheese (1/4 Lean)

Toppings
2.25 oz chicken, cooked and chopped (3/8 Lean)
1/4 cup Reduced Fat 2% Mozzarella Cheese or Reduced Fat Feta cheese (1/4 lean)
1/2 cup spinach, cooked, drained and chopped (1 Green)

Alfredo Sauce
2 Light Garlic and Herb Cheese Wedges (1 Healthy Fat)
2 tbsp Half and Half  (2 Condiments)
2 tsp Reduced Fat Parmesan, grated (2/3 Condiment)
1/4 tsp Molly McButter (1/4 Condiment)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet and spray lightly with cooking spray. Combine grated cauliflower, egg beaters, and 1/4 cup cheese until mixed completely. Spoon mixture on prepared pan with parchment paper. Use the back of a spoon to thin out mixture and form a circle about the size of a dinner plate without the rim. Bake for 30 minutes. Flip the crust over and bake an additional 10 minutes. Oven times may vary. Set aside.

Prepare Alfredo sauce by combining all ingredients for the sauce in a very small saucepan over medium low heat. Bring to a boil and stir constantly until sauce is bubbly and thickened. Remove from heat and stir in chicken. Set aside. Top the crust with cooked spinach. Then spread chicken mixture over the spinach. Top with 1/4 cup mozzarella or feta cheese. Broil until cheese is melted.
