First off . . . sorry for the lack of a Friday Feature last weekend! My internet was down and when it came back to life I had a night that did not spare any free time! I hope you’ll forgive me on that one. Maybe this recipe can help make up for it because it is a favorite in my house and has always been a crowd pleaser whenever I make it for others!
This BBQ pizza can be thrown together in a matter of minutes! It’s a constant go-to meal when I’m in a rush, but still want something tasty. All the ingredients are staples in my house, so I can always rely on using this recipe at any time. I LOVE the rosemary that is used on the pizza. It adds a very gourmet taste and really rounds out all of the flavors. When I first saw this lovely herb in the recipe I found it slightly odd, but tried it anyway and was totally wowed! You’re going to love this pizza! (A quick thank you to the talented Josie Fox for the great photo!)
BBQ Chicken Pita Pizza
Adapted from Bill Phillips, “Eating For Life”
1 whole-wheat pita (120 calories)
2 T. Light BBQ Sauce (such as Kraft)
4 oz. cooked chicken breast, cut in bite-sized pieces
1 slice red onion, diced
1/4 tsp. dried rosemary (or 2 tsp. fresh rosemary)
1/4 cup reduced-fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 425.
Place pita on a baking sheet and spoon BBQ sauce evenly over the pita. Top with chicken, onions, rosemary and cheese.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cheese is melted, the pizza is heated through and the pita is crisp.
Slice, serve, and enjoy!
