Shredded BBQ Beef and Cheddar Pizza

Who doesn't like BBQ? I love BBQ!

I must admit it can be difficult finding a great tasting BBQ sauce that is sugar free but I found two that are pretty tasty! They aren't entirely the same as the sugar laden BBQ sauce I absolutely love, but they are mighty tasty and allow me to stay on my weight loss plan.

The first one I will mention is Guy's BBQ Sauce. It comes in five flavors which are Original, Hot, Smokey Bacon, Smokey Garlic and Spicy. All of them are yummy, but Smokey Garlic has my heart! I really can not tell it is sugar free and it has the best texture and flavor compared to other sugar free BBQ sauces. I haven't found these in local stores yet so I order them online from Netrition. They charges a flat rate shipping fee so I try to stock up on everything I may want at once to save on shipping. 
The other BBQ sauce I like is G Hughes Sugar Free BBQ Sauce. I can only give props to the Hickory flavor. It is tasty, but I still like Guy's BBQ Sauce better. If I run out of Guy's, then I get this one because I can easily find it locally at Wal-mart. I tried the Maple Brown flavor and I had to throw out the bottle, but give it a try. You may like it, but it isn't a flavor I would get again. I haven't tried the Original or Honey so I can not vouch for them either. If you have tried them, let me know! You can also find them at Netrition too!  

Once you find your favorite BBQ sauce, you are ready to make this delicious recipe!

The meat is slow cooked in root beer which helps tenderize the meat and gives it a hint of sweetness. Then you drain the meat and shred it. Measure out 1.25 ounces of cooked meat and add 2 tbsp of BBQ sauce to it. Add the mixture to your cooked Lite Cali'flour Crust with some sharp cheddar cheese and put it back in the oven until the cheese has melted.

It really reminds me of a pulled BBQ beef sandwich because the crust will not get crispy. This is because of all the toppings! 

Cut the pizza in half and fold it over like a burrito. Serve it with 3/4 cup of cooked jicama fries or kale chips and you have an amazing meal!
