Trying this tonight!  It sounds so good and looks easy to make. 


INGREDIENTS
1 can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated classic pizza crust
1/4 cup SMUCKER'S® Red Raspberry Preserves
1/4 cup hickory smoke-flavored barbecue sauce (or other favorite flavor)
2 teaspoons chopped chipotle chilies in adobo sauce (from 7-oz can)
1 package (6 oz) refrigerated grilled chicken breast strips, cubed
1/2 medium red onion, cut into thin strips
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (6 oz)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

DIRECTIONS
1. Heat oven to 425°F. Lightly spray 13x9-inch pan with CRISCO® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray. Unroll pizza crust dough in pan; press dough to edges of pan.
2. In small bowl, mix preserves, barbecue sauce and chilies. Spread mixture evenly over dough to within 1/4 inch of edges. Top with chicken, onion and cheeses.
3. Bake 12 to 20 minutes or until cheeses are melted and edges are deep golden brown. Sprinkle with cilantro..

5K PR

A couple weeks ago I ran the Junior League of Memphis 5K for Kids which was my first 5K since last Fall when I began training for the St. Jude Half Marathon. I set a  PR (Personal Record) of 24:41!  My previous PR was 25:46 so I was thrilled to have beaten my time by over a minute.  I definitely do not consider myself a fast runner but I can tell that running 6 days a week is improving my time and making me push myself to run faster.
