  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 1 white onion (yellow, finely chopped about 1 cup)

Sundried Tomato Grilled Chicken Flatbread Pizza

This is a healthy option with a lot of pizazz to America’s favorite food. You can use flat bread, tortilla shells or make your own dough. I usually find the flatouts in the bakery section of the grocery store and they come in a variety of flavors and are made of whole grains. In this recipe we do not use tomato sauce.
