Pizza night is just one of those traditions that can’t be disbanded, even if you’re trying to cut down on the calories. Luckily, my BBQ Chicken Pizza recipe offers a great alternative that does away with all of the grease and unhealthy fats!
Don’t worry though, this isn’t one of those “pizza” recipes that tastes more like tree bark than the pizza flavor we all know and love. This recipe still maintains that cheesy, gooey taste that we crave so much! The BBQ sauce gives the pizza a wonderful tangy flavor and the veggies contribute a fresh and nutritious topping to compliment the high-protein benefits of the chicken.
In no time at all, this pizza is sure to become a new favorite and you will be getting lean protein and nutrient-dense veggies in a flavor-packed meal. What can be better than that?! This delicious meal is sure to be the easiest recipe you make all week!
