Barbecue Chicken Flatbread Pizza

I enjoy cooking and making up recipes. Sometimes they're wins and sometimes not so much (but I don't like to talk about those). Last night I had a definite win. A delicious Barbecue Chicken and Veggie Pizza on homemade oregano and basil flatbread. Tastes like it should be soooo bad for you but instead is a healthy alternative to pizza when you have a yen for it.

Any toppings can be put on my flatbread, I just happened to have chicken on hand. :D Next time I'm thinking of doing my own version of Round Table's Maui Zaui Pizza.

** if you just want the flatbread to go along as a side dish to a meal you'll want to bake it for 15 to 18 minutes or until completely done. For pizza, it only bakes half the time by itself because it bakes some more with the toppings.

(anyone who wants the nutritional breakdown for just the bread just let me know)
