Healthy BBQ Chicken Pizza

Hold on to your hats my friends, because tonight’s dinner was fantastic!

Not only was it easy, but it required minimal ingredients and came together in less than 15 minutes!

Well, a little preparation was necessary since I placed two chicken breasts in the crock pot, covered them in one can of reduced-sodium chicken broth and let them cook on low all day (about 8 hours). But, if you’re short on time, you could easily substitute rotisserie chicken meat in place of the slow-cooked variety.

Once I pulled the chicken breasts apart using two forks, I poured enough Bone Suckin’ BBQ sauce on top of the meat to make it extra moist and flavorful. This step could easily be done ahead of time and would also make great use out of leftover chicken!

Once the meat was ready, I sprayed two cookie sheets with cooking spray and topped two Joseph’s Lavash breads (one for Ryan, one for me) with a layer of BBQ sauce, sautéed onions, fresh spinach, the pulled BBQ chicken and shredded Mexican blend cheese to make BBQ chicken pizzas!

I then put the pizzas in a 350-degree oven until the cheese melted (about 5 minutes – watch closely so the Lavash doesn’t burn!).

The pizzas were BIG and once Ryan and I saw the ooey gooey cheese, we couldn’t wait to dig in!

Yes, that’s one pizza, and we both practically licked our plates clean.

Such a good dinner!

I’m off to do some prep work on the blog because tomorrow morning the first FASHION-related giveaway will be debuting on PBF! I’m pumped about this one!!!

      I was going nuts without it, too — and then I remembered a pizza my uncle came home with on Good Friday last year: Barbecue Baked Bean. It sounds so weird, but it was A-MAZ-ING. It had bbq sauce as the base, with a layer of Boston baked beans (without salt pork, aka vegetarian, or there are a million crockpot recipes for them!), thinly sliced red onion and a layer of Mexican cheese. I made it last time I was craving bbq pizza and it was FANTASTIC!

    Love this idea! I have some leftover BBQ chicken from tonight’s dinner, so I may have to try something like this tomorrow!

    Looking forward to your new video post! You are the cutest! And don’t worry, when you say random things, it makes you that much more relate-able. I can only imagine what would come out of my mouth if I tried to record myself!

    That looks so good! I was actually going to use your chicken and broth combo to make BBQ pulled chicken sandwiches for dinner tomorrow – pizza sounds even better! Where do you buy the lavash at?

    I’m excited for the give away!!!!

    Can’t wait to see the fashion related giveaway tomorrow. Your fashion sense is great and I love seeing your outfits. They do make me wish I lived in a warmer climate where I could wear cute skirts every day though.

    Did you tried shreded chicken? It’s similar to your recipe and quite tasty.

    My mom used to make us little pizzas on slices of bread. I can wait to try it with whole wheat bread.

    RECIPE:

    You just soak gently the bread in milk, put it on a backing sheet and then put your fav veggies and cheese.

    Let it sitt in the hot oven for 10 min then add a beaten egg over the pizzas. Another 5 min in the over and you get to eat a delicious savory meal.

I made my best batch this a.m.—nothing fancy basic recipe except for I used coconut milk!!!–low fat—the oats tasted like a big oatmeal cookie! You must try! Hugs and I love your blog!! We have very opposite lives-with a few exceptions!:)

    Even though they are all super cute, if I won, I would pick necklace 3 only because it is different and not something I would typically pick out 🙂

    I’ve become OBSESSED with pizza in the past few years (no, seriously, I’m like a Ninja Turtle. Dibs on Donatello.), and I honestly think BBQ chicken pizza will be the FIRST thing I eat on Easter after the Lenten vegetarian pledge ends.

    I’ve made pizza on FlatOuts and pitas before, but have never tried it on lavash! Did you find it to be limp at all? I have that problem with FlatOuts and have taken to pre-baking them for 5 minutes in a high-heat oven before topping them and then baking at 350 like you did. It ends up making the crust crispier and less likely to have all my toppings slide off.. but I’d love to be able to skip a step!

    Hey Julie, I wanted to ask you about protein powders: where’d ya get the packets from? & which protein powder is the best (in your opinion). Do they add flavour to your smoothies?

    Sorry about all the Qs hehe. That pizza looks delicious & healthy 🙂

    Do you purchase your Lavash bread online? I’m on the west coast, and have never seen this brand before. I usually make BBQ chicken pizza on fresh dough with chicken, red onion and cilantro, which is delicious, but this seems like a healthier option.

    Hi, just found your blog through healthy living blogs. As soon as I saw this pizza I knew that I had to try pizza on Lavash. Since I was grocery shopping tonight I was able to pick some up. I was pleasantly surprised to see how thin the Lavash was and was even more surprised by how tasty the pizza was! I’ll be using Lavash crust again. Thanks for sharing!!!

    Cannot wait to try this out! Actually making pizza for dinner tomorrow night ironically. Got a dough from Tjs (trader joes) though! Haven’t tried it out yet, but I hear good things.

    And your crock pot meals are going to be my new experiment for my senior spring semester come next week!

    For your chicken recipes, do you use frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts? Or do you buy the fresh chicken breasts? Do you think it makes a difference?
