BBQ Chicken Pizza

October 29, 2009

I cross my heart that I had planned on making this for dinner long before they were posted both here and here … in the past couple of days!!!  I have been making BBQ chicken pizza for years — even back when we lived in Cambridge and had a teeny tiny kitchen.  I used to take the easy way out, throwing together the pizza with tons of pre-made ingredients, including Perdue Short Cuts and a Boboli pizza crust.  As I was cooking today (with real, whole ingredients), I think my pizza’s come a long way, both in the care it takes to make it and the flavors of the pizza.  It’s a quick fix for a weeknight, and it’s an AMAZINGLY tasty meal!

Feel free to use your own shortcuts as you see fit, but this is how we do it!

BBQ Chicken Pizza

BBQ Chicken Pizza

  • Your favorite pizza dough (I used the 79-cent 1 lb. blob of pizza dough from Foodmaster!)
  • Your favorite barbecue sauce (We used Kraft Thick and Spicy, though we’ve used Sweet Baby Ray’s before)
  • 2 chicken cutlets
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • Green onions, chopped
  • 6 oz. mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Cook chicken cutlets until JUST done.  Slice or shred, depending on your preference.
  3. Knead out dough on a floured cookie sheet until it is at your desired thickness (we like a thin pizza).
  4. Spread barbecue sauce on dough with a spatula.
  5. Scatter chicken, scallions and red onions over dough and sauce.
  6. Sprinkle cheese on the top.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Let sit for about 5 minutes, slice and enjoy!

(See what I meant about EASY??!)
