It was another pizza night in our house and I wanted to take make something a little different. By swapping out tomato sauce for BBQ sauce and using chicken for the meat, I got a fresh twist on traditional pizza. The spinach added some mild flavor and a nice nutritional punch. By using the premade crust and the cooked chicken strips, this meal was done and on the table in less than 30 minutes! It wasn’t entirely kid friendly, but by keeping some of this chicken aside, I could include my son in the meal too.

4 tbsp barbeque sauce, divided
½ cup fresh spinach
3 tbsp Real Bacon Bits
1 ½ cup mozzarella cheese
1 (6 oz) package of pre cooked chicken strips
Preheat oven to temperature indicated on pizza crust.
Combine garlic and olive oil in a microwave safe dish. Microwave for 30 seconds. Brush olive oil mixture over the whole crust.
Next, brush 2 tbsp BBQ sauce over the crust. Top with bacon bits and spinach. Cover with a layer of cheese.
Coat chicken strips with the remaining 2 tbsp of BBQ sauce. Sprinkle chicken strips on top of the cheese layer. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
