Friday Quickie-BBQ Chicken Pizza

15 Mar

bbq chicken pizza

No, not that kind of quickie; get your mind out of the gutter. This is a really quick, easy recipe that doesn’t require too much brain/will/power. Which is a great thing, especially if you have a toddler and a husband who are literally poking you with foam pirate swords while you try to cook. True story. Actually, a common occurrence.

Remember that time we told you that we love pizza? No? Well we do. Like a lot.

This recipe has a lot of flavor with just a few ingredients, which means it’s important to use a really good bbq sauce. We used this sauce, which was vinegar-based and had a nice tang to it. And it has a pig on it, which can only mean good things when it comes to bbq (just don’t tell our daughter, she thought the drawing was cute in a I-want-you-to-be-my-pet-not-eat-you kind of way.) At least chicken was on the menu tonight.

bbq ingredients

BBQ Chicken Pizza

Pizza Dough
1 cup shredded, cooked chicken breast
3/4 cup bbq sauce
red onion, thinly sliced
green pepper, thinly sliced
1 cup mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven with the pizza stone (optional) to 450 degrees.

Heat medium-sized saute pan over medium-high heat. Saute onion and pepper in olive oil until softened; set aside.

Toss shredded, cooked chicken with 1/4 cup of bbq sauce.

Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface (further instructions here) and place on pizza peel or cookie sheet.

Spread remaining bbq sauce on dough. Top with chicken, onions, peppers and cheese and put in oven.

Check pizza after five minutes to make sure it is cooking evenly; if not, rotate.

Cook for another five to ten minutes; total cook time is 10-15 minutes or until crust begins to brown (if using the parchment-lined baking sheet, slide the parchment paper out from beneath the pizza and bake for another minute to crisp the bottom).
