Buffalo Chicken Pita Pizzas

Buffalo Chicken Pita Pizzas

I am a mom of 3, and for the most part my days are very busy and tiring. So, when I do not want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, I make some sort of pita pizza. Buffalo chicken is one of my recipes I like to use. 

This takes just a few minutes to put together and only 5 WW, 512 calories and 71.2 grams of protein. These pita pizzas are extremely filling and delicious.

Here is what you need:

  • Sheet pan
  • Chicken Breast
  • Hot sauce
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Hidden Valley ranch seasoning
  • Dak’s Green Zest
  • Joseph pita bread
  • Avocado oil spray
  • Fat free cheddar cheese
  • Bolthouse blue cheese dressing
  • Non-fat Greek yogurt
  • Red onions (optional)
  • Tomatoes (optional)
  • Scallions, to garnish

 

Here are the pita breads that I buy. You can also find the Aldi brand for less money and same thing. Only 60 calories a pita. 

You can use any hot sauce you’d like but this is my favorite brand out of them all.

I always have both of these spices on hand in our pantry. The Hidden Valley ranch is great for so many things but I LOVE the Dak’s Spices Green Zest. If you want to try out any kind of Dak’s Spices, click HERE and use code CHEFALLIE.

Both the garlic powder and onion powder are usually ALWAYS in everything I cook.

 

Mixing the non-fat Greek yogurt with the Bolthouse Farms dressings maximizes the amount without messing with the flavors.

Our kids LOVE the Ranch and I love using the Chunky Blue Cheese with anything spicey.

Here is how to make it:

  1. Place the hot sauce on the bottom of the crockpot followed by the chicken breast.
  2. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, Hidden Valley ranch seasoning and Dak’s Green Zest (optional)
  3. Set to low for 6-8 hours or high for 4.
    1. If you’d like, just use rotisserie chicken and mix with above hot sauce and seasonings.
  4. Once chicken is ready to use preheat oven to 400 degrees
  5. Put some parchment paper onto a sheet tray.
  6. Add the pitas onto the tray.
  7. Spray the pitas with avocado oil or cooking spray.
  8. Sprinkle some garlic powder, onion powder and more Dak’s Green Zest over the pitas.
  9. Place into the oven for about 3-4 minutes, enough to lightly crisp up.
  10. Take the cheese and rinse under water to remove the caking agent. This helps the fat free cheese to melt better.
  11. Sprinkle half the cheese amongst the two pitas.
  12. Distribute the 5 oz. of buffalo chicken to the two pitas followed by the remaining cheese.
  13. Place into the oven and bake until cheese is melted, and the pitas are nice and crispy all around.
  14. Add the diced tomatoes, diced red onions, scallions and garnish with the dressing.
  15. Enjoy!
