BBQ Chicken Pizza



This recipe is orginally from my friend Betty, It was so delicious I asked for the recipe. 

  • Pizza dough for two 12" pizzas.
  • 1 - 11/2 cups BBQ sauce, your favorite ( I used hickory smoke)
  • approx 2 cups grilled or cooked chicken, roughly cut up or shredded (a supermarket roasted chicken is a great option)
  • red onion, chopped or thinly sliced, as much as you like, a handful for each pizza.
  • green or red pepper, chopped
  • 1 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 two12 inch pizza pans and dust with cornmeal.
  2. Press dough in gently, pushing to the edge for a nice round crust.
  3. Spread on 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 be 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.
