Expert Tips

  • *All breads made with at least 8 grams whole grain. At least 48 grams whole grain recommended daily.
  • For an appetizer, cut pizza into bite-size squares, and insert a party toothpick into each piece.
  • Go from turf to surf! Use 1/2 lb cooked shrimp in place of the chicken in this recipe.
  • Sprinkle the pizza with fresh cracked pepper for an extra boost of flavor.
