BBQ Chicken Pizza with Red Onions and Bell Peppers

I'm back and armed with some new low calorie meal choices (I'll throw in a few naughty ones too...)

Let's start off with my BBQ Chicken Pizza with Red Onions and Bell Peppers

A great way to use extra grilled chicken you might have on hand. I recently calculated the calories and it makes a nice low cal dinner and satisfies my pizza cravings.

BBQ Chicken Pizza with Red Onions and Bell Peppers

Ingredients
Betty Crocker Pizza Crust Mix
½ C. Hot Water
6 oz of chopped grilled chicken breast
¼ C. chopped red onion
¼ C. chopped bell peppers
6 T. BBQ Sauce (I used Memphis Style)
1 Cup Kraft 2% Milk Mexican Style Four Cheese

Instructions
Heat oven to 425˚. Grease a large rectangular cookie sheet with olive oil spray.

Prepare pizza crust per instructions. While dough is resting, prepare the pizza toppings.

Press dough into a rectangle on cookie sheet, using floured fingers as necessary. Spread BBQ sauce evenly on dough. Add chicken, onion, and peppers. Bake for about 8 minutes. Evenly sprinkle cheese onto pizza. Bake an additional 5-8 minutes or until crust is starting to turn golden brown and cheese has melted.
