BBQ Chicken Pizza


This recipe is my friend Betty W's and she graciously has allowed me to share it with you. When she made this I loved it. It probably helped that it was made with love! (she gives the best hugs)

Ingredients
Pizza dough for 2 12" pizzas.
1-1 1/2 cups BBQ sauce, your favorite ( we like the honey garlic, or hickory smoke)
approx 2 cups cooked chicken, roughly cut up or shredded.

Hubby has even gone and BBQ some chicken breasts(2) ahead of time for even more flavor- this is when we have plenty of time.

I really like picking up a couple of roasted chickens from the supermarket deli and using the meat for various dishes in the week. Great when you're pressed for time.
  • red onion, chopped or thinly sliced, as much as you like, a handful for each pizza.
  • green pepper, same as for red onion1 tin pineapple chunks, drained
  • 8-12 oz mozzarella cheese, grated.
  • a few slices of bacon fried and crumbled for the top.
  • cornmeal to dust on the pizza pans.
Directions-
  1. grease 2 12 inch pizza pans and dust with cornmeal
  2. Press dough in gently, pushing to the edge for a nice round crust.
  3. spread in preferred amount of BBQ sauce for each pizza, about 1/3 cup.
  4. pour a bit of the sauce onto the chicken for more flavor.
  5. sprinkle pizza with a little cheese
  6. add the chicken, red onion, green pepper,pineapple and bacon
  7. top with remaining cheese.
  8. Preheat the BBQ on the one side only on high. You will cooking on indirect heat.
  9. Put the pizza on the top of the heating rack on the opposite side of the flame and bake with the lid closed for about 15 minutes giving the pizza a quarter turn about every 5-7 minutes.
  10. Total baking time is about 25-30 minutes.
Once you have had a BBQ pizza you may never want to have it made the conventional way again.
It really is fabulous!

  8. Sounds wonderful! I tried BBQ pizza awhile ago and despite my best attempts, still got the crust a little dark. The flavour is so nice though....I shall try again.
