1⁄4 cup slivered red onion

11⁄2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place the tortilla on a small nonstick baking sheet. Bake for 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until crisp. If air bubbles form, poke them with a fork, then press out the air with a spatula or oven mitt.
  • Remove the sheet from the oven. Top the tortilla evenly in layers with the sauce, cheese, chicken, onion, and cilantro.
  • Bake for 2 to 4 minutes, or until the cheese is completely melted. Slice into 8 wedges. Serve immediately.

Note from Alexander: "It is critical that you do not attempt to make a pizza 'crust' from a low-carb tortilla. It will smoke and burn, without becoming crisp. Most barbecue sauce is high in sugar and carbohydrates. I always look for one with 7 grams or less of carbs per serving. Although you can use 'low-carb' barbecue sauce, I have not found one that I enjoy, so I opt for one that contains less carbohydrates rather than one that’s called 'low-carb.'"
