Here's one that my family loves! In fact, Rachel Ray has TONS of great recipes on her TV show site. As a side note, I make our crust instead of using the flat bread, both recipes are below.

Buffalo Chicken Flatbread Pizzas
2 tablespoons EVOO - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, chopped into bite-size pieces

Salt and ground black pepper

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup Frank's Red Hot sauce

4 flatbread rounds

3 ribs celery from the heart, sliced thinly on a bias

3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles

Preheat oven to 450ºF.

Place a large skillet over medium-high heat with 2 turns of the pan of EVOO, about 2 tablespoons. Season the chicken pieces with salt and ground black pepper, and add them to the preheated skillet. Sauté until cooked through and golden brown, 4-5 minutes.

Reduce the heat to medium and add the butter to the skillet to melt. Add the hot sauce and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened and coats the chicken, 2-3 minutes. (Be careful not to take a deep breath over the pan or the hot sauce fumes could burn your sinuses!)

When the chicken is ready, place the flatbread rounds on a baking sheet and divide the chicken equally between all four rounds. Scatter the celery over the chicken and top each round with some shredded cheese and blue cheese crumbles. Bake until the bread is crisped and the cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.

Okay, I can't find the pizza crust recipe but if I do later I'll post it.

Okay, just found the crust recipe but I have no clue where I got it from. Anyhow, here it is:

1 pkg yeast
1 cup warm water
1 tsp salt
1TBS honey
2 1/4 cups wheat flour

Proof your yeast in everything but the flour. Then add the flour and knead for a bit. Let it rise till double. Then roll it out into pizza shape or individual sizes and let it rise again. Poke a hole in the center before cooking it so it doesn't shape like a dome. Cook it at 350 for about 15 minutes and THEN add your toppings from above and re-cook just until the cheese is melted to your liking. SOOOO healthy and SOOOOO delicious! Oh, and we served it with homemade ranch dressing. YUM!

Our kids couldn't get enough of it. Okay, well Matt could, he's not a chicken kid. So he ate his with basil, olive oil, garlic salt and tomatoes all chopped up. That's yummy too!
