Mediterranean White Pizzas with Chicken, Spinach and Grapes

In May, we’re celebrating the foods of countries such as Spain, Italy and Greece with International Mediterranean Diet month. The Mediterranean diet is packed with health benefits from fish, heart-healthy oils, nuts and in-season produce. Our Mediterranean plan is a perfect fit for families looking to eat fresh fare, and there’s a for-two version as well. This recipe is a recent favorite of ours from the Mediterranean plan. We promise it’ll win you over (yes, even the grapes!).
