BBQ Chicken Pizza

Another one of my new favorite recipes from Core de Force, this is the easiest pizza ever, perfect for a Friday night, wont break the bank or your waistline! Best part, the kids will love it! Mine sure did. (My husband might not approve...but he makes pizza for a living...! ha!)

There are two steps to this so make sure you read through them all. The most time consuming is whipping up the BBQ sauce for the pizza; it makes about a cup so plan on having enough Pita's in the house to make it more than once, depending on how many you are feeding. I used Joseph's Whole Wheat Pita's, the only one I could find without added sugars or HFCS and all that crap.

BBQ Sauce:
(Source cred: Core de Force Nutrition Guide)
Makes 12 servings, 2 TBS each

1/2 cup tomato paste, no added sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup Worcesterhire suace
2 TBS Maple Syrup
2 TBS Apple Cidar Vinegar
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder ( I did not have this on hand--opps!)
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper

1. Combine all ingredents in a medium mixing bowl; mix well.
2. use immediately or store in the fridge in airtight container
Portion Fix: 1/2 purple

My 21 month old couldn't wait to get his hands on it...
