BBQ Chicken n’ Onion Pizza

Mmm another personal pizza! This one is BBQ chicken, onions, Roma tomatoes, and mozzarella on a whole wheat tortilla.

Recipe: Serves 1

Preheat oven to 350-375 and place a whole-wheat tortilla on a baking sheet. Spread a heaping tablespoon of tomato paste over the tortilla and then sprinkle 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese on top. In a pan, saute diced chicken in BBQ sauce until opaque white. Top pizza with diced chicken, onion slices, tomato slices, basil, oregano, fresh ground pepper, and salt. Bake until crispy to your liking, about 10 minutes for me.

Benefits:

Tomato * They are famous for their high lycopene content. They also contain lots of potassium, vitamin A, C, and folate!

Onion * Contains quercitin, an antioxidant that halts the growth of tumors! Also, studies have linked regular onion consumption with lower cholesterol and reduced risk of colon cancer. A prime source of chromium.

Basil * Has anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants called flavonoids. Flavonoids protect your cells from damage (and thus, in the long run, cancer).

Oregano * A tasty source of antioxidants!

Chicken * Pure protein and B vitamins.

Mozzarella * Contains calcium and is made with part skim milk!
