BBQ Chicken Pizza

alt="BBQ Chicken Pizza"

I have deemed this summer the Summer of Pizza. We have tried homemade pizza in the past, and always came up a little short. I’ve determined that the fail was in the crust. I have tried pre-made and refrigerated crusts, but nothing suited our fancy. I finally worked up the nerve to try my hand at homemade dough, and lo and behold it’s not that hard. I used Edies’s recipe found here. I used it one night last week to make BBQ Chicken Pizza, and it was perfect.

Honestly, I think I could eat a BBQ Chicken Pizza from California Pizza Kitchen every day of the week and not get tired of it. But since that would be out of my budget, I instead learned how to make them at home. My recipe isn’t an exact replica of theirs, but it IS a delicious pizza that I enjoy making at home.

You’ll need:

1/2 batch of pizza dough (or double the recipe and make 2 pizzas)
1/2 cup BBQ sauce (This can be any variety you like. I prefer a sweet sauce like Costa’s or Sweet Baby Ray’s.)
1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
1-2 grilled or roasted chicken breasts, sliced
6-8 cilantro sprigs
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded

Make pizza dough according to directions. Allow dough to rise, divide dough in half, turn onto floured surface, and knead a few times. Roll out dough to desired thickness. Transfer to round baking sheet or pizza stone which has been sprinkled with the cornmeal.

Spread BBQ sauce over dough. Add thinly sliced red onion and cilantro. Add chicken. Top with mozzarella cheese.

Bake on 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden.

  1. Yes, please. I love barbecue pizza although I usually use ground beef and leave out the cilantro.
    Another great recipe, Ashley.
