Take-Out Remix: BBQ Chicken & Gouda Pizzettes



Gouda? Yes! Because a little goes a long way, this light BBQ Chicken Pizzette recipe is satisfying, light and perfect for lunch, dinner or even as an appetizer when entertaining!

What’s new: multigrain tortillas, you may use whole wheat, too- and I found tasty Organic BBQ sauce. Interestingly enough, it was perfectly smoky and sweet- a new favorite in our home!

To knock this recipe out of the ball park, I drizzled over the pizzette a tbsp of Bolthouse’s yogurt-based Ranch dressing upon plating. Oh, yeah! Only 1pp additional.

For dinner, serve with a salad of fresh greens, tomatoes, cucumbers and drizzle with a little EVOO and balsamic vinegar. Love it!

INGREDIENTS: Makes 4 pizzettes.

1 cup(s) cooked skinless, boneless chicken breast(s), or shredded
3 oz Gouda cheese, smoked or regular, shredded (about 3/4 cup)
½ small uncooked red onion (s), cut in thin slivers
½ cup(s) cilantro, fresh, chopped
4 serving(s) ^La Banderita Multigrain Flour Tortillas, 4 tortillas
4 serving(s) ^Annie’s Organic BBQ Sauce, 1/2 cup
2 spray(s) ^olive oil cooking spray


1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat 1 or 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.

2. Place tortillas on prepared pan(s).

3. In a small bowl, toss chicken with barbecue sauce; divide among tortillas and sprinkle each with 3 tablespoons cheese and 2 tablespoons onions . Bake until cheese melts and bottoms of tortillas are lightly browned, about ◴ 5 to 7 minutes.

4. Remove from oven and sprinkle each pizza with 2 tablespoons cilantro. Slice each pizza into 4 wedges and serve.

One serving is 1 Pizzette (4 wedges). Salud!
