Bangin’ BBQ Chicken Pizza

Did someone say Pizza?!  I don’t know about you but I am truly in love with pizza!  I could literally eat it every day!  It’s the one meal I enjoy on the weekends as my cheat meal. There are so many ways to make pizza with various toppings.  Veggies, meatballs, chicken even fruit! Round, square, thick, thin! I prefer thin crust – I like the crispy taste- plus I feel it’s less doughy.

While I am not a fan of BBQ sauce I wanted to give this one a try since I was making the sauce from scratch. 

 



Hint….the leftover sauce I used to top my burgers with the next night for dinner!  You could just make a batch of the BBQ sauce alone and keep it bottled in the fridge!  Yes – it is that good! 

All I did was cut up 3 organic chicken breasts and cook them in the pan with some olive oil, salt & pepper, then added in a few spoonfuls of the BBQ to coat the chicken.  Threw in the bag of fresh spinach to wilt, diced red onions and topped it off with freshly grated parm cheese! 
I told you I like it thin so the crust that I used I purchased from Whole Foods and is called Top This!  It has minimal ingredients, GMO free, grilled already and from a local vendor – SCORE!!  It made this recipe even more simple to throw together during the week!
 
Voila!!  Dinner is done!  Took about 10-12 minutes to heat everything through in the oven.  Super simple and you could pair it with a side salad or some mixed veggies.  This night I paired it with a side of steamed broccoli for some extra greens!  It was such a hit in my house I have made it a few more times!  Pizza craving satisfied!!
