last night, aj & i made our own bbq chicken pizza.
because we're doing that healthy thing, we don't really eat pizza.
but we took a recipe from cooking light and tweaked it to make it, well, even lighter. like, under-350-calories-and-11-grams-of-fat-in-an-entire-flatbread lighter.
here's what we used:
flat out! italian herb flatbreads (90 calories in one flatbread)
purdue chicken breast cutlets (80 calories in a serving)
2% reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese (70 calories per serving, we used 2 servings on each pizza)
2 plum tomatoes
sweet baby ray's honey barbecue sauce (70 calories per serving)
here's how we did it:
1. baked the flatbread (lightly oiled) for 7 minutes on the grate in the oven at 350
*note: we think we'd omit this step next time. it made the flatbreads super crisp. still good, but not doughy at all.
2. pulled the flatbread out, brushed it with bbq sauce, added cheese, then tomatoes, scallions, and chicken, then a little more bbq sauce and a little more cheese.
3. baked at 350 for about 9 more minutes, or until cheese was melted to our satisfaction.
the picture above is only 2/3rds of a flatbread, and we each ate one. it was probably equivalent to two slices of pizza. and it was good! we'll definitely be making this again, especially since the cooking light recipe was for 8 slices of pizza and 300 calories in one slice. no, thanks.
