Recipe- BBQ Chicken Pizza

This is one of our favorite meals. So yummy and easy!
BBQ Chicken Pizza

2 chicken breasts, chopped into small pieces
1/2 red onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 pizza crusts (I use Bobali Thin Crust pizza because I am lazy and want this to be quick)
Extra virgin olive oil
Favorite BBQ sauce (I use Sweet Baby Ray's Original)
4 cups grated Italian cheese blend or mozzarella

Season the chicken with salt, pepper, and cumin. Saute it with onion and garlic until browned. Add 1/4 cup of bbq sauce and mix together. Remove from heat.

Brush a couple of tablespoons of olive oil onto each crust. Brush on bbq sauce to taste. Sprinkle on cheese evenly. Sprinkle on chicken mixture evenly. Sprinkle on a little more cheese.

Bake following your pizza crust directions (Bobali is baked at 450 for 8-10 minutes). Remove from oven and sprinkle on some chopped cilantro.

  • Our friends (hi, Josh and Ann!) who made this for us originally also added halved cherry tomatoes before cooking but I don't use them since Chris isn't a fan.
  • The cilantro is my addition (and addiction).
  • We were also talking last night and some nice crumbled bacon would really add something to this dish, I'm going to try that next time.
  • Basically, this recipe is very customizable and everything is done to your taste. 

Please let me know if you try this recipe and what you thought!
