Turkey Alfredo Pizza

A longtime family favorite, this thin-crusted pizza is chock-full of flavor and nutrition, and an excellent way to use up leftover turkey during the holidays. Serve this pizza with a bowl of vegetable soup or rustic green salad for a busy weeknight meal solution.
-- Edie Despain, Logan, Utah


1 prebaked thin Italian bread shell crust (10 ounces)
1 garlic clove, peeled and halved
¾ cup reduced-fat Alfredo sauce, divided
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 teaspoons lemon juice
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 cups shredded cooked turkey breast
¾ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


Place the crust on a baking sheet; rub with cut sides of garlic. Discard garlic. Spread ½ 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 degrees for 11-13 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.
