BBQ Chicken Pita Pizza

Happy Friday! Here is a little riddle for you: What do you get when you are in a time crunch and need to use up some leftovers?

You get an absolute masterpiece! I had some leftover shredded chicken and veggies that needed to be used up. I was also craving dying for some pizza so I put my thinking cap on and delved straight to work. My thinking cap was right on the bull's eye. This BBQ Chicken Pita Pizza was so amazingly delicious with a tangy sauce and crispy crust.

So I grabbed a frozen whole wheat pita out of my freezer, wrapped it in a moist paper towel, and zapped it in the microwave for 10 seconds. I flipped it over and warmed it up for 10 more seconds. Next, I carefully used a knife to open the pita up and split it in half. I then spread 2 Tablespoons of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce on the bottom of each half and topped both with shredded chicken, chopped up peppers, diced tomatoes, and a sprinkle of reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese. Into the toaster oven this creation went and I baked it for about 7 minutes.
