Buffalo Grilled Chicken Flatbread Pizza 

Expeller-pressed canola oil spray or olive oil

2 100% whole-grain 100-calorie flatbreads

1/4 cup canned tomato sauce

1 tablespoon Buffalo hot sauce, plus additional for serving

5 ounces sliced grilled chicken* (about 1 1/2 cups), cut into bite-sized pieces1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/2 cup shredded Italian 6-cheese blend with part-skim mozzarella

2 scallions, green parts sliced at an angle

Inner yellow celery leaves (no stems), torn into smaller pieces

Preheat oven to 400°F and move the oven rack to the bottom shelf. Spray or brush the smooth sides of the flatbreads with oil and place oil-sides down on a large cookie sheet pan. Combine the tomato sauce and Buffalo sauce in a measuring cup and spread on the flatbreads, leaving 1/4 inch around the edges. Dust the chicken with the smoked paprika and sprinkle the chicken on top of the sauce. Sprinkle with cheese and green scallions.

Bake on the lower oven rack until the cheese is bubbly and the edges of the flatbreads are golden, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with the celery leaves and cut each flatbread into 4 pieces.

* To save on time, use pre-grilled chicken from freezer section of grocery stores. Some premium markets will even season and grill fresh chicken for you. Or rotisserie chicken works well, too.
