We've got a single-serve BBQ chicken pizza that is SO rockin' it hurts. CPK, eat your heart out...
Ingredients: 1 stick light string cheese 3 oz. cooked boneless skinless lean chicken breast, chopped 2 tbsp. your favorite BBQ sauce with about 45 calories per 2-tbsp. serving, divided 1 high-fiber or whole-wheat pita 1 1/2 tbsp. finely chopped red onion 1 tsp. chopped cilantro
Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Break string cheese into thirds, and place in a food processor or blender -- blend at high speed until cheese takes on a shredded or grated consistency. (Or just tear string cheese into pieces and roughly chop.) Set aside.
In a small dish, toss chopped chicken with 1 tbsp. BBQ sauce. Set aside.
Place pita on a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray. Spread remaining 1 tbsp. BBQ sauce onto the exposed side of the pita, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge.
Sprinkle evenly with shredded/grated cheese. Scatter saucy chicken over the layer of cheese, and then sprinkle with onion.
Bake in the oven for 10 - 12 minutes, until pizza is hot. Top with cilantro, slice into quarters, and enjoy. YUMMMM!
California Pizza Kitchen's The Original BBQ Chicken Pizza
CPK is a place full of cool, innovative, and delicious dishes. We LOVE that, but there are a few major flaws. First, the portions. Those pizzas are too large to be considered single servings, but too small to be shared without ordering a few. And second, the stats. So many of the menu items are super high in calories. Even the kid-sized version of this pizza has over half a thousand calories and double-digit fat grams. This one is NOT hard to make over, people. The key is finding a BBQ sauce you love that has about 45 calories a serving, shredding up some string cheese (it melts SO much better than the pre-shredded stuff -- TRUST US), and getting some good high-fiber pitas. And our pie ACTUALLY serves one -- it's perfectly sized! So if you know someone who thinks they're gonna steal a slice of yours, you'd better double the recipe. Just a friendly little HG tip...
