Kids love to help assemble this. I use a rotisserie chicken from the store to simplify my life a bit. I figure any bit helps. An adult will have to debone the chicken. I pull off the meat and set it aside then chop it into bite size pieces for the pizza all at once. I take some of the leftover steamed carrots, frozen spinach and puree it up with some of the BBQ sauce just to sneak in some more goodness.

Hardware – pizza pan, spoon for spreading out the sauce, bowls to hold the toppings.

Software – Ready baked packaged whole wheat pizza crust, deboned “no salt added” rotisserie chicken, your family’s favorite BBQ sauce pumped up (see above to find out what I add to pump it up), fresh cilantro, mozarella cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic powder, caramelized onion or thinly sliced red onion (both optional)

Steps for kids to do:

  1. Wash your hands for 20 sec with soap. Read all directions and gather materials needed.
  2. Remove the crust from the packaging. Save the directions.
  3. Place crust on a pizza pan or cookie sheet.
  4. Preheat the oven (turn the oven on to bake and set the temperature to what the package says).
  5. Sprinkle garlic powder all over the crust, spread the pumped up BBQ sauce all over using the back of your spoon.
  6. Sprinkle chopped chicken all over
  7. Wash and chop the cilantro. If the kids are doing this then have them tear it up with their fingers or put a clean bunch into a plastic cup and let them cut into them using the kitchen scissors.
  8. Sprinkle the cilantro around
  9. Optional. Scatter onions around. Caramelizing them helps to take off the bite.
  10. Sprinkle on an even layer of cheesy goodness by mixing 1/3 mozarella to 2/3 cheddar mix.
  11. Slide it into a preheated oven and bake according to the packaging directions.
  12. Have an adult help you take it out of the oven.
  13. Congratulations, you have made a masterpiece. Enjoy!

This is so tasty that my family eats all of it for dinner and I have to make another one for lunch, so buy 2 crusts. Be the envy of all at the lunch table.
