OOh I love pizza and I love making it in lots of different ways. This recipe is from Cooking Light, but I did change it a bit. It originally called for lean ground beef, which was yummy, but I thought, “Hey, BBQ chicken is sooo good and it would be even better on this pizza if I used ground chicken, yeah yeah, ground chicken!” And so, deliciousness was born! We eat this one once every month or so and it is really simple to throw together and really filling. Also its relatively low in fat and calories as it uses ground chicken and low fat cheese. Give it a try!
BBQ Chicken Pizza
1 package of ground chicken (usually about 1 lb. you can do a 1/2 pound very easily though)
1 small red onion, chopped
1/2 c. of chopped carrots (I just take like 10 baby carrots and chop them and call it dinner)
1/3 c. bbq sauce
3 tbsp brown sugar
dash of black pepper
boboli pizza of your choice
1/4 c. of shredded low (or NO) fat provolone or mozzarella/provolone mix
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cook chicken, onion, and carrot in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well; return meat mixture to pan. Stir in barbecue sauce, sugar, salt, and pepper; reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes.
Place pizza crust (or crusts if you are making minis) on a baking sheet. Divide meat mixture evenly among crusts, and sprinkle with cheese. Bake pizzas at 450° for 12 minutes or until cheese melts.
