BBQ Chicken Pizza

BBQ chicken pizza

Pizza, pizza, pizza Fridayyyy! Best day of the weeeeek! I could eat pizza each and every day but I try to keep it together and limit myself to just one day a week so that I don't turn into one (a pizza). Now, I'm a sauce fan - I like alot of it and if a pizza doesn't have enough, I get sad. Initially, I was worried about the lack of sauce in this recipe from Emily Bites, but once I started slathering on the BBQ sauce, I knew I would be satisfied. 

I think you can definitely make this even easier by using leftover rotisserie chicken or even omitting it all together and making it meatless for Lent or for dietary preference. BBQ sauce and cheese, what's not to love? As always, I like my pizza with extra salt, pepper, garlic powder, and hot sauce on top. YAS, PIZZA! PS: If you like comfort food and you haven't checked out Emily Bites yet, get on it. She makes some of the most hearty, delicious recipes that are all lightened up so you don't feel guilty.

BBQ Chicken Pizza
Recipe from Emily Bites
Yield: 6 slices, PointsPlus: 5 per slice
Ingredients:
  • 12'' whole wheat thing pizza crust (I used Boboli)
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet n' Spicy)
  • 1/2 cup chopped, cooked, chicken breast
  • 3 scallions, finely chopped, white and green parts
  • 3/4 cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese
Directions:
  • Preheat the oven to 450f
  • Spread BBQ sauce evenly around the pizza crust, leaving a bit of room around the edge. Spread the chicken and scallions around evenly and then sprinkle the cheese on top
  • Place pizza on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until desired crispiness
    • In my case, this means 15 minutes - I like it extra crispy!
