What food do most people enjoy? Pizza! Of course my daughter is not one of those people and I always have to bring her an alternate meal at every birthday party. But that is besides the point 🙂 I love pizza! I love a thin crust. I also enjoy a thick crust. I like plain cheese and I also like fancy toppings. I like to make pizza at home and try new sauces and toppings. Sometimes I even try a variety of toppings on the same night. As I talked about in my last post on Easy Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken there are so many ways to use the shredded chicken. One of the ways is to use the chicken as a pizza topping. For this recipe I used flatbreads instead of a traditional pizza crust. A little healthier and less points if you are counting on Weight Watchers.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place two of the flatbreads on a baking sheet. Drizzle and spread the olive oil on top of the flatbread. Bake for 4 minutes to get the flatbread crispy. While they are in the oven you can mix the chicken with 1 tablespoon of the honey teriyaki sauce.
Remove the flatbreads from the oven and spread the remaining honey teriyaki on each flatbread leaving a 1/4 inch border around the edges. Top evenly with the shredded chicken, sprinkle with the crumbled bacon and the cheese. Bake the flatbreads for 3-6 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the flatbreads are lightly browned.
The great thing about this recipe is that you can modify it to fit your preferences. You can add more or less bacon or cheese or honey teriyaki. For this particular recipe I used FlatOut Thin Crust Flatbreads. You can also use Pillsbury pizza crust, make your own or use a frozen pizza dough.
In my next post I will talk about freezer meals and how they are easy to make and wonderful to have on hand for a quick and easy dinner – so stay tuned!
