BBQ Chicken Pizza

Here is a great recipe for classic bbq chicken pizza using red onions and fresh cilantro. It is a great way to use those yummy Cali'flour pizza crusts you might have on hand!

Or you can make your own cauliflower crusts! Try this homemade recipe!

Keep in mind if you do decide to use the homemade recipe, add 1 more Green to complete your Lean and Green meal! 1/2 cup of assorted sweet bell peppers would be delicious on this bbq chicken pizza!

If you are all about convenience, the lite Cal'flour pizza crusts are amazing and count as 1/2 a Lean and 3 Greens on the 5 and 1 plan! No mess, no stress with making them because the crusts are already made for you! I love the lite crusts rather than the traditional crusts because you can have the entire pizza! Yes!!! If you use the traditional crust, you can only have half the crust, but you can have an additional 1 1/2 Greens. Currently the lite crusts are only available online. Grab them at the link below!

I pre-baked the crust for about 10 min at 400 degrees. Then let the crust cool for 5 to 10 min. Spread 2 tbsp of sugar free bbq sauce on the cooled crust. I used G Hughes Carolina Sweet Heat BBQ sauce I picked up at Walmart. I love this one because it is only 1 g of Carbs for 2 tbsp making it only 1 Condiment for 2 tbsp! Say what?! The other flavors are 2 g of Carbs per 2 tbsp so this flavor is a gem!

Then sprinkle chicken, mozzarella cheese, and red onion on top. To save time, use the breast meat from a rotisserie chicken you find at a grocery store and save the rest of the meat for future meals! Then bake until the cheese melts and garnish with fresh chopped cilantro. 

So yummy! Have a piece! Or eat the entire pizza! It's that delicious!
