BBQ Chicken Pizza

The sauce on this pizza is absolutely delicious. Sweet and tangy and just the right flavor for this pizza. When I cook the chicken, I do add salt, pepper and garlic powder to it for flavor. It's hard to make a low calorie pizza that is big enough for a full meal. 1/3 of this pizza is a very fulfilling meal. Don't go too overboard on the cheese, the sauce is so flavorful that you really don't need a lot of cheese. If you want to keep this under 500 calories, you could enjoy 1/4 of the pizza with a small salad with fat free zesty Italian dressing.

Barbeque Chicken Pizza

1 Pillsbury Thin Crust refrigerated pizza crust
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. barbecue sauce
1/4 cup Catalina light, salad dressing
1 heaping cup shredded cooked chicken (6 oz)
1 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup cheddar or Colby jack cheese

Spread refrigerated pizza crust onto large cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for about 6 - 8 minutes until light brown. In small bowl, combine BBQ sauce and Catalina dressing together. Spread BBQ mixture on warm crust all the way to the edges. Spread shredded chicken evenly over sauce. Cook chopped onion on skillet for about 2 - 3 minutes just to get them started cooking. Spread onion evenly over pizza. Last, sprinkle pizza with cheese. Cook in oven for about 10 - 15 minutes until crust reaches desired crispness. We took the crust off the cookie sheet for about 3 - 4 minutes to crisp the crust even more. Cut and serve.
