Mediterranean Chicken Pizza

Oh man, this is a good one! My apologies for the blurry pic! Why does it only have cheese on half? The fun half was Hubby's. Unfortunately I'm watching the dairy consumption (I've since started cheating a bit here and there). We make a lot of pizza in our house. I love the endless possibilities. This particular creation was too good not to share with you all. We've made it a second time as a flat bread (just split the dough in half, roll it out thin and cook for less time). Both ways were delicious...I didn't even miss the cheese, no joke!
Ingredients:
2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts - cut into chunks
2 cloves of garlic
1/4 red onion - sliced
3 cups of fresh spinach (could also use a package of frozen)
1/2 cup of roasted red peppers - sliced
1 cup of marinated artichoke hearts - chopped
1/4 cup of kalamata olives - halved
Pizza dough
1-2 cups of pizza sauce
Shredded mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Heat up olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken, stir often until cooked throughout. Lower heat to medium, add red onion and garlic - cook for 2-3 minutes. 
2. Add spinach, stir often until wilted, then add roasted red peppers, marinated artichoke hearts, and kalamata olives. Stir thoroughly so veggies are all combined - add salt and pepper to taste. Turn down heat. 
3. Roll out pizza dough, add desired amount of sauce, top with chicken/veggie mixture and then as much mozzarella and parmesan cheese as you wish! Cook pizza according the the directions for the dough. 
Mmmmmm, so tasty!
