garlic chicken pita pizza

Earlier this year I made a trip to Utah to see my ladies from the online digi shop I sell at. The first night, we ate at this awesome restaurant & I had a garlic chicken pizza. Tons of garlic & it was drizzled with balsamic glaze. {drool} I tried to re-create it the other night & I think it was pretty dang good.

This was so easy! Here's the recipe: 

Garlic Chicken Pita Pizza

1 low carb pita

Grilled or baked chicken breast

Minced garlic

Shredded romano cheese

Feta cheese crumbles

Balsamic glaze

Lay the pita on a baking sheet or baking stone. Spread the pita with the garlic. Add the shredded chicken on top. Sprinkle with a little romano & feta. Bake for about 15 minutes at 400 degrees in the oven. Drizzle with balsamic glaze. Cut like a pizza & EAT PIZZ!

Currently eating | chicken & spinach

I thought I'd give you a little peek into what I'm currently eating a lot of. Chicken is happening quite often. It's low fat, a great source of protein & is pretty versatile. It's fairly inexpensive & I can grill or bake several at once to be able to use later. I'm also eating a good deal of spinach. Not only for salads, but I'm also putting it into my post workout shakes as well {really you can't even taste it}. So here's the lowdown: spinach & chicken are great with cashews, pepitas, craisins, blueberries, apples, quinoa, brown rice, avacado, cherry tomatoes, feta, mix it all together for a cold salad, in a pan heated through, add a little low sodium teriyaki, or throw in a low carb tortilla. I'm loving a balsamic vinaigrette along with everything as well. Try out any combo you like. These are just a few ideas.


bbq chicken flatbread pizza

If you love pizza as much as I do {meaning you crave it several times per week} you have to get creative. I try to fit the "real thing" in once a week or week and a half. For instance, tonight, we had my absolute fave pizza {bbq pork} from my cousin's local pizza place. So good. As long as you're keeping yourself on track, you can for sure enjoy indulging every now & then. I came up with this extremely yummy bbq chicken flatbread pizza the other day. Damn fine, if I do say so myself.


Here's how it goes...

1 Flatout Spicy Italian Flatbread

1-2 T Ragu No Sugar Added Spaghetti Sauce

1/2 Chopped Chicken Breast

Thin sliced Red Bell Pepper

Diced Onion

1-2 tsp Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet & Spicy BBQ sauce + water

1/8-1/4 c Sargento 2% Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese

Lay out the flatbread on a baking stone or baking sheet. Spread with sauce, add a little over half the cheese, top with chicken, peppers, onions & drizzle the bbq sauce {mixed with a little water to thin it down}. Add the rest of the cheese. Bake at 425 degrees.
