clean{ish} pick of the week | bbq chicken pizza

mmmmm, pizza.  who doesn't love pizza?  besides parker.  and my sister in law jodi {who i think brainwashed parker into not liking pizza}.  but seriously, so good.  this recipe comes from my own head & was inspired by the bbq chicken pizza at cheesecake factory.  that's where the idea for red onions & cilantro comes from. delish.  the addition of fresh pineapple comes from experience of making homemade pizza, it's a must!

ok... so yes, this one is clean-ish.  i say "clean-ish" because i cheated... a little.  sometimes you gotta just go with convenience right?  we used a pre-made whole wheat pizza dough from trader joe's & a bottled bbq sauce.  but, if you want to make your own sauce this one looks pretty tasty.

whole wheat bbq chicken pizza

--> trader joe's whole wheat pizza dough {or whatever dough you prefer}
--> bbq sauce {we use sweet baby ray's but you could use the clean recipe i posted above}
-->cheese {we use quattro formaggio from trader joe's - raw milk & no hormones, a mix of parmesan, asiago, fontina & mild provolone.  yum}
--> shredded {cooked} chicken
--> red onion
--> cilantro
--> fresh pineapple
--> oregano
--> ...and more cheese!

assembly is pretty self explanatory.  cook according to dough directions until crust is golden brown & cheese is melty.  SO GOOD.

do you have yummy pizza recipes?  let's hear 'em!

  1. Yum! I'll have to try that pizza combination -- I would never think to put red onion/cilantro/pineapple together but I could see how it would be good. That BBQ sauce recipe looks delicious. I LOVE the taste of Baby Rays but hate that it has HFCS in it...I would much rather they just good ol' fashioned sugar.

  2. Omgosh this looks amazing! I had no clue trader joes had pre-made pizza crust. I have to get some during my next trip!


  3. Pesto sauce, grilled chicken, fresh mushrooms, and cheese. Seriously SO good. Try it, you won't be sorry!


  4. Going to have to try this.
