BBQ chicken pita pizzas – take 2!

I make these BBQ chicken pita pizzas for dinner and also for appetizers while entertaining.  They’re a bit drier than the recipe shared a few months ago, but my family really likes them.  They’re a great high protein, low-fat dinner option.photo2

Ingredients

  • 6-8 whole wheat pitas
  • BBQ sauce (my favorite is Bone Suckin BBQ)
  • 1 to 1.25 lbs cooked skinless, boneless chicken breast, shredded*
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Red Onion, chopped
  • Rosemary

* To make the chicken – preheat the oven to 300 degrees.  Throw the chicken in a glass pan.  Cover with foil.  Cook for about 1 hour.  Shred with two forks.

Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cut the pitas in half so you’re left with two whole circles (vs the traditional half circles associated with pita bread).
  • Cover a baking sheet in foil and lay out the pitas.
  • Mix the shredded chicken with the BBQ sauce in a small bowl.  You decide how much sauce you want to use.
  • Divide the chicken evenly between the pita crusts.
  • Top with equal amounts of mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
  • Top with red onion.
  • Sprinkle with rosemary.
  • Bake about 10 minutes or until cheese is starting to brown.

Variation

  • Cut out the mozzarella cheese.  There will be a lower fat content but the pizzas will be even more dry.
