Chicken Pizza with Balsamic Glaze

The first time I had this pizza was at Infusino's restaurant.  Unfortunately, they don't have it on their menu any longer.  So, I decided to make it myself.  This recipe is so quick and easy to make.

1 prepared pizza crust
1-2 TBS garlic-infused olive oil
1/2 cup low-fat Ricotta cheese
1 Roma tomato, thinly sliced
1/2 cup pre-cooked chicken, cut in small pieces
Balsamic Glaze*
5 fresh basil leaves, cut in thin pieces

Using a pastry brush, brush oil over top of crust.  Spread ricotta cheese over crust within 1/2 inch of the edge.  Arrange tomatoes on top of the ricotta cheese.  Sprinkle chicken over the tomatoes and drizzle with a little of the balsamic glaze. 

Bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes.  When done, sprinkle basil leaves over the top and drizzle with more of the balsamic glaze.

* I used Trader Joe's Balsamic Glaze.  You can make your own balsamic glaze by reducing balsamic vinegar over medium-low heat in a small sauce pan.  Stir often and watch it closely so it doesn't burn.
