RECIPE: BBQ Chicken Pizza

Nearly every Friday night we have Pizza & Movie Night.  I make our pizza dough from scratch and store them in the freezer.  

I thought I'd share how we make our BBQ Chicken Pizza.  It's so easy, you really don't need a recipe.

  • BBQ Sauce (your favorite or what's on sale)
  • Precooked chicken (I always have some in packaged in 1-1/2 cup portions in the freezer)
  • Pizza Dough
  • Shredded Cheese (your favorite or what's on sale - I used Mozzarella here, but I've used Cheddar in the past and it was good too)

Prepare the pizza dough and roll it out to the appropriate size (round or rectangle, whatever you like).

Pour BBQ sauce over the unbaked crust and spread with the back of a spoon to within about 1" of the edge.

In a separate bowl, add chicken and BBQ sauce and mix together (like you're making BBQ Chicken sandwiches).  You can make this as saucy as you like.  Just remember too much sauce might make the dough soggy.

Using a fork, drop the BBQ Chicken over the sauce on the pizza dough.  Add as much or as little as you like.  We usually have enough to make two pizzas and then a little leftover for me and the kids to eat sandwiches the next day.  

Sprinkle your choice of cheese over the chicken.  Bake at 400 degree F for 18-20 minutes.  Until cheese is golden and crust is slightly golden.

I do the same thing! Last time I made Buffalo chicken pizza! I always try to do something different that I would want to order out.
