Week 50 Menu and BBQ Chicken Pizza

This week I made some really yummy BBQ chicken pizza. My family gobbled it up and we fought over the leftovers. No one even commented on the spinach and tomatoes in it (it was chopped up really small). I'll post the recipe after I post my menu for the week.

Wow, this is my 50th time posting my weekly menu! I've been doing this for over a year now. I've really enjoyed having my menus all planned out and it's made making dinner (and grocery shopping) a little easier.

Monday: Chicken Salad in Soft Wraps

Tuesday: Rich & Creamy Pasta Bake

Wednesday: My last freezer meal given to me when I had the baby, 1 hour Breadsticks

Thursday: Chicken Avocado Sandwiches on fresh bread

Friday: try Tamale Griddle Cake tacos (thanks Maggie!)

Saturday: easy night (maybe I'll use up the extra honey-lime enchiladas I froze two weeks ago -- yum!)

Sunday: Crockpot black bean salsa chicken (maybe I'll try making some corn tortillas)

I guess I'll need to mix up what I have on which night so we don't have pasta two nights in a row and mexican the next three nights. Oh well. We'll see what happens. Now it's your turn to post your menu! And finally...here's the pizza recipe.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

Crust Recipe (or use your own -- this one comes from the Food Nanny Cookbook):

Mix together and let sit for 10 minutes:
1 T. yeast
1 c. warm water
2 T. olive oil
1 T. honey

Add and knead:
1/2 tsp. salt
3 c. flour (more or less as needed)

Roll out pizza dough onto pizza stone (I love my pampered chef pizza stone -- makes great crust!) The dough will rise a little while you prepare the toppings.

BBQ Chicken Topping:

2 T. ranch dressing
2 T. BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Rays)
1 chicken breast, cooked and shredded
2 or 3 slices turkey bacon, chopped and fried
2 T. chopped red onion
1/2 tomato, chopped
1 c. spinach leaves, chopped finely
BBQ sauce (1/4 - 1/2 c.)
monterey jack cheese

Spread ranch dressing and BBQ sauce on prepared pizza crust. In a bowl mix together shredded chicken, turkey bacon, red onion, tomato and spinach. Add BBQ sauce (using as much as you think looks good) and mix. Spread chicken mixture onto pizza crust. Top with shredded monterey jack cheese.

Bake at 425 for 15 minutes.

All right -- have a good week! Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to post your menus. Later this week I have a tasty treat for you to try!
