    This lightened version of classic taco pizza offers antioxidant benefits from tasty tomatoes. You'll love the spice of salsa as the sauce and the ease of using frozen whole wheat bread dough as the crust (we recommend Rhodes 100% Stone Ground Whole Wheat Bread).

Mexican-Style Shrimp Pizza

    Pizza toppings: sweet peppers, green onions, jalapeno chile pepper, shrimp, Monterey Jack cheese, cilantro

    Tip: If you're watching your sodium intake, leave out the olives.

Thai-Style Chicken Pizza

    Pizza toppings: mushrooms, pea pods, shredded carrots, chicken, green onions, peanuts

    Crunchy peanuts are the final touch on these tangy pizzas. There's nothing to do for the crust -- just warm up a 6-inch pita bread round and voila!
