BBQ Chicken Pizza was first posted as my choice for Recipe of the Week for my Weight Watchers @ Work group in April 2012. Below are my notes from the time:

This week’s recipe was obtained from: http://www.emilybites.com/2011/03/barbecue-chicken-pizza.html

This pizza recipe is so easy to make, especially if you already have the cooked chicken on hand. I often use a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken from the store. The recipe calls for 1 scallion, but I prefer to use small purple onion slices to create a pizza similar to one that is sold at California Pizza Kitchen.

Ingredients:

Boboli 12” Whole Wheat Thin Pizza Crust

1/3 cup+ barbecue sauce (I used a touch more than 1/3 cup)

½ cup chopped, cooked, boneless, skinless chicken breast

1 scallion, finely chopped

¾ cup reduced fat 2% shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 450.

2. Spread barbecue sauce evenly across the top surface of the pizza crust, leaving at least a ½ inch edge around the outside. Sprinkle the chopped chicken pieces and scallions evenly over the top. Finish the pizza by sprinkling the mozzarella cheese over top.

3. Place pizza on a foil covered baking sheet, a pizza stone (my preference) or straight onto the oven rack (depending on how you like your crust) and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

Yields 6 slices. Weight Watchers PointsPlus Value: 5 per slice
