Chicken Florentine pizza

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Baking time: 10–12 minutes

Chicken Florentine pizza

10-ounce, precooked thin pizza crust (such as Boboli)
1 packet (1.6 ounces) Knorr Alfredo pasta sauce mix
1 cup skim milk
Half a 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
4 ounces diced, fully cooked chicken breast (try thawed, frozen diced chicken breast for convenience)
3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/8–1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Preheat oven to 400°F. Place pizza crust on a baking sheet or baking stone and set aside. In a saucepan, whisk together Alfredo sauce mix and milk until blended. Stirring constantly, cook over medium-high heat until thickened (about 1–2 minutes). Spread Alfredo sauce evenly over pizza crust. Top evenly with spinach and chicken, then mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and bake
10–12 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
