Barbecue Pizza

So much of what DH and I cook is solely based on what fresh produce we have. Each week I scour the grocery ads and base our meals on what fresh items are on sale that week. Neither of us discriminates on any veggies, so it is a money saving, healthy plan that works for us.

Although we eat healthy most of the time, our one free day is Sunday. As a tradition we always have pizza. Our negotiation with ourselves is that we make it home so we can monitor the fat, calories and salt that go into everything. We have come up with some creative pizzas and DH is always thinking about the next one he wants to put together. 

Barbecue Pizza Ingredients:
Pizza dough
BBQ sauce
Spinach (washed and cut into ribbons)
Tomatoes (sliced and excess water patted dry)
Fresh mozzarella (sliced)
BBQ Chicken (we actually used tofu this time since I had it in the fridge already cooked and ready to go)

Roll out the pizza dough. 
Layer toppings.
Cook for 8-12 minutes in the oven at 475 degrees.

One of the best things (in my opinion) about the dough we use is there is always a little left over for bread sticks  As a kid, I always skipped the pizza and went for the bread sticks. I still adore them and enjoy eating them.

Bread Stick Ingredients:
Pizza dough
Parmesan Cheese

Add your favorite, Italian style herbs to the dough. We used, basil, oregano and garlic powder.
Roll dough into stick size pieces.
Bake in oven with pizza for about 7-12 minutes, flipping them over once. 
When they are cooked, toss them with Parmesan Cheese.
Serve with marinara.
