Friday night is pizza night in our house.   After a long work week it’s nice to make an easy but delicious meal.   We enjoy customizing the pizza each week to our tastes.   My husband usually has pepperoni and vegetables on his while I have chicken and mushrooms or just vegetables on mine.   The only problem with pizza night is the calories.    The pizza crust is loaded with calories!

I recently found Toufayan Bakeries Smart Pockets.  Now I’ve been eating their pitas for years and love them and I’ve had the awesome 100 calories Smart Bagels but now they have Smart Pockets. They are soft, pita pockets with only 80 calories in them.   I’ve been stuffing them with all sorts of things for lunch and they taste great.

However, this Friday night when I went to look for pizza dough in the refrigerator I realized we were out of it!  I looked in the freezer and even in the downstairs refrigerator but there was no pizza dough in sight.   My husband and I were set on pizza so I started looking around to see if there was anything else we could put our pizza on.

Toufayan Bakeries Smart Pockets make the perfect base for flatbread pizzas!

That’s when I spotted the Smart Pockets.   They were the everything flavor which have poppy seeds, caraway seeds, sesame seeds, flaxseeds, and other yummy things on them.   As I looked at them an idea formed.   I took two of them out of the bag and sliced the pockets in half making 4 total rectangles.   They were flat breads and I thought they would be perfect for flatbread pizza!   Not only would they crisp up in the oven, they would only contain 40 calories of crust per pizza.

Making a BBQ Chicken Flatbread Pizza is easy!

I quickly inventoried what I had on hand and made both my husband and I BBQ Chicken Flatbread pizzas.   I simply spread BBQ sauce over the bread, sprinkled it with cheese, bacon, and red onions, then tossed some chicken with the sauce and put that on top.   I baked it up for about 13 minutes and dinner was ready!   They smelled amazing coming out of the oven.

BBQ Chicken Pizz Flatbreads are easy to make and delicious!

The Toufayan Bakeries Smart Pockets baked up nice and crisp.  The BBQ  sauce of the chicken almost caramelizes and is amazing.   The bacon gets extra crispy and the entire pizza is just fabulous.   We each ate two, along with a salad, and it was perfect for dinner.  I’m thinking about making these and cutting them into 6 pieces to serve as an appetizer at my next party.

  2. I love flat bread!!! I don’t buy it very often but it sure is yummy!! BBQ Chicken is one of my favorite pizza’s. Simple but yet you get that Bbq when you are in the mood for it without having to actually BBQ. =) Thank you so much for sharing!!

  3. You are so creative! I wish you could come to my house and whip up something from something else. So smart though to use this for a crust since it is low on calories but tastes great.

    1. Thanks Katelyn! Yeah I love pizza but I hate how many calories crust has so this is a great solution to that problem!

    Another great recipe, Heather! I’ve never seen the Smart Pockets in the store but now I will be on the lookout for them. This recipe looks so good – and you can’t beat the 25 minute turnaround.

  5. Such a brilliant substitution for calorie-rich pizza crust, I’m definitely going to have to give pizza like this a try! I’ve never been much of a fan of chicken on pizza but bbq chicken with some other veggies added might just be the way I like it! Thanks so much for sharing this amazing recipe, I look forward to mixing it up soon!

  6. I love BBQ chicken flatbreads. Complete sucker for them when they’re on a menu. I’ve never seen the smart pockets before. I’ll have to keep an eye out so that I can try this recipe out.

  8. This looks delicious! And I love that it seems super easy to make. I am a big fan of pocket bread, but I didn’t think about using them this way. We are always looking for lunch ideas on the weekend. This would make a great lunch.

  9. These bbq pizzas look amazing! I never would have thought to try bbq sauce on a pizza but your results look amazing. Friday night pizza night sounds like a great way to spend a Friday night!

    I didn’t even know you could get pocket bread like this in grocery stores!! I will definitely be adding this to my grocery list for sure. I love flatbread and the bbq chicken plus bacon make this the perfect mid day snack while still keeping things on the healthier side.
