buff pizza - make this healthy muscle meal in 15 minutes
You like buffalo wings. You like pizza. Unfortunately, so do your fat cells. But we’ve got a few tricks for melding these two classic “guy foods” that will keep you lean and get you in and out of the kitchen fast. This buffalo wing pizza is high in protein, has moderate fat, and packs 10 grams of fiber.
Preheat oven to 450°. Toss chicken in ½ tbsp sauce. Place pizza crust on a baking sheet and lay the tomato slices evenly over it to cover the crust. Top evenly with chicken, then sprinkle cheese over everything. Drizzle remaining sauce over top. Cook pizza until crust is lightly crisped and toppings are hot, about 8–10 minutes.
Makes 1 serving
6 oz grilled chicken breast, cut into ½-inch cubes*
½ tbsp + 1 tbsp (or to taste) low sodium hot wing sauce, divided
⅓ 10-oz wholewheat pizza crust
(slice off ⅓ the thickness; you can eyeball the measurement)
1 large tomato (or 2 small Roma or plum tomatoes),
cut into ¼-inchthick slices
1½ tbsp reduced-fat crumbled blue cheese
*This recipe is great for the guy who likes to grill chicken breasts in bulk and refrigerate them for the week ahead. If that’s not you, simply take an extra five minutes to cut some raw chicken breast into cubes and cook in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until no longer pink.
