Turkey Alfredo Pizza

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
Yield: 6 servings

1 prebaked thin Italian bread shell crust (10 ounces)
1 garlic clove, peeled and halved
3/4 cup reduced-fat Alfredo sauce, divided
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 cups shredded cooked turkey breast
3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Place the crust on a baking sheet; rub with cut sides of garlic. Discard garlic. Spread 1/2 cup Alfredo sauce over crust.

In a small bowl, combine the spinach, lemon juice, salt and pepper; spoon evenly over sauce. Top with turkey; drizzle with remaining Alfredo sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and pepper flakes. Bake at 425° for 11-13 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.

Tips and Tricks
Make this pizza with cubed chicken as well. This is a great way to use up leftovers from holidays. Bake your own crust to save money. Omit the red pepper flakes if you don't like spicy food.
Make It Healthier
Omit the salt.
How Kids Can Help
Rub garlic on crust. Measure and mix ingredients. Spread topping and cheese on crust. Older kids can shred cheese.
