Let’s talk about pizza for a moment.
There’s New York-style, where toppings are served up on a super thin crust that you can bend and eat as you people watch your way down the street. There’s Chicago’s deep dish with slices so dense and rich that it’s hard to eat more than one (trust me I tried during my most recent trip there). And finally, there’s SoCal pizza, made with a flatbread base and topped with all sorts of exotic toppings…like kale and figs.
And that’s just scratching the surface. It would take a much longer blog to categorize and classify all the different types of pizzas in this world. Unfortunately, most of them do not fall under the classification of “healthy.”
But, like you, I am trying to eat healthy. Enter the BBQ Chicken Flatbread Pizza! First off, this flatbread pizza screams summer. It’s loaded with barbecue sauce and chicken. Second, unless you tell someone, there’s no way they’re going to know it’s healthy. Half of a good-sized BBQ chicken flatbread will set you back about 300 calories and will power you with 35 grams of protein so you can dominate your opponents in horseshoes. Or whatever your kids are playing these days.
Because here’s the thing. You could order a Domino’s Memphis BBQ Chicken Pizza. And it’ll probably be tasty. But it’s 200 calories a slice. So, in theory, it’s lower in calories. But, if there is a whole pizza in front of me, there is no way I’m eating just one slice.
Which brings us back to the BBQ Chicken Flatbread Pizza. It’s loaded with grilled chicken and onions and corn and other veggies that make summer awesome. What are you waiting for?
