Chicken Crusted Pizza

Recipe By :Ginny Larsen
Serving Size : 4
Categories : Main dish Poultry

-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 lb. ground chicken breast meat
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
2 eggs
italian seasoning
garlic powder
onion powder

15 ounces stewed tomatoes -- drained
2 tablespoons garlic
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup spinach
1 cup shredded Co-Jack cheese
1 tablespoon bacon pieces, reduced fat
1/4 cup chopped mushrooms
1/4 cup sliced black olives
1/2 cup chopped ham

(I didn't measure the seasonings... just sprinkle them in to your taste)

Mix all the crust ingredients in a food processor and spread in a greased cake pan or small cookie sheet, or pizza pan. Bake in preheated 450 degree oven for 10 min.

I used a can of stewed tomatoes, with the juice drained, (more carbs) but you can use just regular canned tomatoes. I crushed them good by squeezing them with my hand, added garlic, about 2 TBS. or more of EVOO, and spread some of that on the crust.
Then I took canned spinach and squeezed out all the water good and dotted some of that over the tomato.
Cover with shredded cheese. Top that with bacon pieces, mushrooms, and black olives. I added some chopped ham also.

Bake about 15 min. more.
