I really, like REALLY REALLY, love pizza but as I’ve stated before it’s usually a pretty heavy meal and I’m not so much a fan of that “I ate way too much!” feeling. So, I’m all about converting my favorite dishes into lighter and healthier versions. I did just that with these BBQ Chicken Zucchini Pizzas!
One of the ways I find equally as satisfying as the real thing when it comes to pizza is swapping zucchinis for the traditional pizza crust. Sure, it’s not dough, BUT, these BBQ Chicken Zucchini Pizzas are loaded with nutrients including fiber which, much like whole grains, keep you fuller longer. If prepared correctly, it can also add a perfectly tender and flavorful crunch to your meal.
Now, when it comes to topping a pizza, although the options are endless, one of my favorite mash-ups is chicken, BBQ sauce, roasted red onion, and mozzarella. It’s simple but loaded with flavors from sweet to salty to tangy. It’s the BEST summer inspired combo in my opinion!
This healthy, gluten and grain-free dish makes a great meal for even the busiest of weeknights and is perfect for meal prepping too!
