Suga’s Healthy Pesto Pizza Recipe!

PhotoGrid_1503024294890.png

Suga finally got her hands on Ashebre Gourmet Condiments’ Spicy Basil Pesto sauce. Ashebre Gourmet Condiments is from Ashebre, The Virtual Restaurant led by local Executive Culinary Artist, Oji Jaja.

Now and then you will see a few stocked in Loshusan Supermarket. I glimpsed it somewhere else too, but the location has slipped from my memory.

I was happy with how long Ashebre’s 10oz Spicy Basil Pesto lasted. I made Chicken and Shrimp Pesto Pasta for two, as well as 5 mini Pesto Pizzas made from Whole Wheat Pita Bread over two weekends.

My husband and I enjoyed it. It is one of the healthiest Pestos that I have seen on the market with only 10% Saturated Fat and I loved and appreciated that it wasn’t drenched in Olive oil. It was dairy free and fresh with it’s own unique herby, taste.

Other Jamaican Branded Pestos that are #sugaendorsed are Christina Simonitsch’s Pesto from Simo’s Bread and Catering, who is currently away to return September and none other than, Stush in the Bush’s Pesto.

If you get your hands on any of their Pestos, be sure to try my Recipe for your Personal Chicken Pesto Pizza!

Ingredients

Whole Grain Pita bread
Ashebre Gourmet Condiments Spicy Basil Pesto
Skinless, Boneless strips of Chicken Breast
Jerk seasoning
Garlic powder
Paprika
Black pepper
Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy Salt-Free seasoning blend
Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese (15% Sat. Fat)                                              Tomato
Onion
A few leaves of fresh Basil
***Add a few leaves of Fresh Arugula! Suga couldn’t find any at the time

Instructions:

1. Prepare the Oven-Baked Skinless, boneless strips of Chicken Breast.

Pre-heat the oven to 350 °F.

Season the Chicken with Jerk seasoning, Garlic powder, Paprika, Black pepper and Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy Salt-Free seasoning blend.

Bake the Chicken for about 12 to 15 mins (depending on your oven and the thickness of the Chicken Breast), ensuring that you flip sides along the way until juices run clear and it remains tender.

Leave strips to cool for about 5 minutes, then cut up into smaller pieces.

2. As the Chicken is baking, prep your Pizza

Spread the Pesto sauce evenly on the the Pita Bread.

Add Cheese, Onion and chopped Tomato.

3. After the Chicken has cooled for about 5 minutes and it is cut into smaller pieces, turn up the oven to 400°F.

4. Place the layered Pita Bread in the Oven and as the Cheese begins to melt, add the Chicken and sprinkle a bit more Cheese on top.

Watch until it melts, then remove the Pizza from the oven. It just takes a few minutes!

Garnish with a few fresh Basil leaves and Arugula.

Slice it with a Pizza Cutter then Serve!

ENJOY!

The Pizzas at Cellar 8 are great with or without a few drinks. I enjoyed my Greek pizza two weeks ago and Suga bears rave over their Down South pizza as well.

The Down South pizza has sweet, tangy South Carolina sauce with ham, sugar, cured bacon, caramelized onion and sharp cheddar.

Enjoy some delish appetizers and entrées this weekend accompanied by a few drinks at Cellar 8! #sugaendorsed

Hidden Spot for Jamaican and Vegetarian Cuisine Lunches!

Healthy Bites is located at a house in Trafalgar Park, close to NCB Atrium where you can pick up your Lunch.

Vegetarian meals such as Lentil Stew and General meals, typically of Jamaican cuisine such as Ackee and Saltfish, usually range in cost from $450-$650JMD. I love when places don’t drench your Ackee in oil. Healthy Bites is definitely a clean eating option. I am promoting healthy food today but if Fried Bammy is your choice for a side option, go for it.

The Menu varies each day and they offer large enough portions that are tasty.

You can customize your Lunch based on the sides you desire and they are open to suggestions. They are also considering Delivery.
