BBQ Chicken Pizza

Hello, We did it!!!  We made it to Friday!  It has been a busy week for me, but dam has time gone so slow.  I am so happy the weekend is almost here.  Do you have any big plans for the weekend?  I plan on making my holiday cookies.  I have a few in mind, but would love to know what your favorite holiday cookies are.

Last night I made my BBQ Shredded Chicken in the Crockpot, and had quite a bit left over.  I try not to waste any food, so I have been deciding on what to do with the leftovers.  I thought of a BBQ Sandwich, nah!  Then I thought of Pasta with BBQ sauce, but I wasn’t feeling it.  I was feeling like pizza!  Personally I never had BBQ Chicken pizza, but I figured why not give it a try?  I did, and I like it!  I am seeing this in my future again and again!

I used a Flatout Bread for my crust, some BBQ Sauce for my sauce, Mozzarella Cheese and a little bit of onion. It was so good, I am actually really surprised on how good it is.  I also made a traditional Cheese and Pepperoni Pizza for my Husband.  Here is our pizza before I put it in the oven.

I cooked it at 400 degrees for about 11 minutes.  This pizza is full of flavor and the crust is crunchy, like a big cracker.  You could also use a tortilla shell if you don’t have Flat Out Bread.  I bought the Flatout Bread at Target, but I know more grocery stores are carrying it.  Flatout makes the best pizza crusts!

This little personal pizza would make a great appetizer at a football party!  Just slice it into 8 pieces instead of 4.  Quick, healthy and easy, all the things you know I like!!

BBQ Chicken Pizza

3 Tbsp. Onion – sliced thin


Preheat oven to 400 degrees

On the Flatout Bread or Tortilla, add BBQ Sauce, Chicken, Onions and then Cheese.

Place in the oven for 10 -12 minutes.  Make sure you watch it so it doesn’t burn!

Off the subject of BBQ Chicken Pizza.  I would like to talk about weight struggles.  I know, kind of an off topic with a recipe mixed in, but it’s my blog and I can do what I want to.  🙂

Anyway,  sometimes I struggle when it comes to weight, I start to go into a panic mode when I see the scale go up.  I know, I know there are reasons this happens, water weight, sodium, muscle, that time of the month and so on, but for me I start to freak a little.  I know I’m eating healthy and exercising, but sometimes we need support and re-assurance.  What I did this evening was contact my Spark group, encase you don’t know, I belonged to  They helped me lose my weight and I gave me the support I needed. Every once in a while I go back for the support, and tonight I asked why am I gaining weight, when I have been working out and eating reasonably healthy?  I know we are not all perfect and this is a lifestyle change not a diet, yet I still worry.  So I asked my question and this is the answer I got, which I think is a great answer and I wanted to share it with you, after all we all have struggles especially when it comes to weight.

From Coach Nancy:

Remember our weight is not a static number. This has to do with the composition of our body being well over 50% and the fitter we are the more water our body hangs onto fluid, so if there is any shift in our diet, hydration, workouts, even hormones, this can lead to a shift on the scale.

If you allow the scale to control your success you are going to be in for a long ride. I attended a workout a few years ago led by renowned Sports Registered Dietitian Nancy Clark and she recommends to her clients not to have a goal weight, but a goal weight range of 2-3 pounds because of the things I mentioned above.

There comes a point that you have to stay away from the scale and trust that you a living a healthy lifestyle, otherwise you will be a slave to the scale which will keep you trapped in a diet mentality.

I hope this helps!
Coach Nancy

I love her answer, I am a slave to the scale and I need to stop.  If your interested, here is a blog I wrote about the scale a while ago.

I just want to thank you for listening to me,sometimes I just need to get it out there.  if you ever need support or have questions,I am here for you.  I learn something new everyday and I have struggles too!  But we just have to work through it!  Now one more picture of my wonderful pizza dinner!

Have a great evening!!!

P.S .  After I finshed writing this blog, I got an e-mail from Cooking with Trader Joe’s and this is what it said.
