Easy BBQ Chicken Pizza

BBQ.  Chicken.  Pizza.  My three favorite words.  At least for the time being.  If you've been around Fork Heart Kentucky long enough, you know I have lots of favorites and they change on a daily, if not on an hourly basis.  Barbecue is kind of a mainstay in my life though.  Have I mentioned how desperately I want a smoker?  I have gone so far to research how to make my own.  Have I also mentioned that I am not handy?  Oh, that's right.  I totally have.  

Last week I shared my Slow Roasted BBQ Pineapple Chicken recipe with you.  As promised, here is just one thing you can do with it.  This works well for a quick weeknight dinner when served up with a green salad or a light weekend lunch.  Either way, it's a lightening fast, throw-together meal.

I'm always on the lookout for new products that feature all natural ingredients and when I found these awesome-sauce TortillaLand tortilla's at Meijer, I decided to give them a try.  Head on over to their website where you can occasionally find a coupon! I love saving money.  Anyway, these tortillas.  They only have five ingredients--all of which are easily pronounced and none of which are chemical compounds.  They are sold in the refrigerated section of your grocer and are actually raw tortillas.  Don't stop reading!!!!  Seriously, all you do is throw them into a skillet for 60 seconds and presto-chango a fresh, piping hot, delicious tortilla.  Soooo good!

I'm raving about tortillas because this BBQ Chicken Pizza is actually made on tortillas.  It saves time AND makes it slightly healthier--not all that bread to fill you up! That's a win in my book!!

All you have to do is cook your tortilla, if your using a raw or fresh tortilla, which I would recommend but it certainly isn't required.  Then you brush on your favorite BBQ sauce.  I have recently come across some great all-natural store bought sauces.  One day I will perfect my own sauce but until that day comes I'm thankful for options!  

Next, load it up with your toppings.  I keep mine pretty simple and base it on the BBQ Chicken Pizza from California Pizza Kitchen.  Best one ever!! 

Mmmm mmm good!!!  All that's left is to throw it in the oven!!  Now keep in mind with this recipe that nothing is "exact" so I'm not putting in measurements.  I just grab some ingredients and go!
