Barbecue Chicken Pizza

Dec 15

I have a love hate relationship with pizza.  I LOVE to eat lots of pizza but I hate that my thighs are starting to tell others that I eat too much pizza! :)  I started experimenting with pizza recipes several months ago.  I came across one from Tosca Reno that my husband and I really enjoyed.  The only problem was that it was kind of time consuming.  The last thing I want to do on a Friday night is slave away in the kitchen.  Which is why I always ordered pizza!  Why can’t eating healthy be fast and easy?!  I decided to try to find an easy way to do Tosca Reno’s Barbecue Chicken Pizza.  This is my version:

Healthy Barbecue Chicken Pizza:

2 cooked chicken breast, shredded, chopped or sliced (I made my chicken in the slow cooker.  I put 4 chicken breasts with about 1 1/2 cups of water in slow cooker.  I seasoned the chicken with cumin and chili powder.  Cooked on high for about 4-5 hours.  The bonus was that I saved the leftover chicken for lunch!)

1 whole wheat pizza dough already prepared (I bought my dough from Trader Joe’s)

2/3 cup Barbecue Sauce (I bought all natural from Trader Joe’s)

1 cup Reduced-Fat Medium Cheddar Cheese, grated

1/4 Red Onion, sliced thinly

1/2 Yellow Pepper, sliced thinly

Cilantro, chopped

Saute onion and pepper in olive oil on medium heat for 3-5 minutes.  Grease a pizza pan or cookie sheet, whichever you prefer.  Roll out pizza dough and put on greased pizza pan.  Spread barbecue sauce over pizza dough.  Add cooked chicken and onion and pepper to top.  Sprinkle cheese over and bake for about 18 minutes or until dough is cooked.  Sprinkle with fresh cilantro.
