BBQ Chicken Pizza

At our house, Saturday night is "Pizza Night" and every teenager for miles around knows it! I make the pizza dough from scratch and we either have 2 thick crust pizzas or 1 thick and 2 thin, depending on how many we are feeding and what toppings I decide to make. No matter what we always have one pepperoni and green olive, usually one greek feta cheese pizza and a garlic cheese bread pizza or a veggie pizza. However about once a month I will make a BBQ Chicken Pizza or a Chicken Ranch Pizza instead.

I've been making this BBQ Chicken pizza since the spring of 2002 and it's one of my favorites!

BBQ Chicken Pizza

1 pizza crust (bought or homemade and baked)

BBQ Sauce (about 1/2 - 3/4 cup of your favorite brand)
3/4 c cooked, diced chicken
4 oz. (1 cup grated) smoked gouda cheese
4 oz. (1 cup grated) mozzarella cheese
1/2 red onion, sliced into rings

Spread the crust with bbq sauce and top with the cheese, chicken and onions. Bake at 400 degree for about 7 minutes or until the cheese is melted and it just starts to brown. Since I make my own homemade crusts I only 'partially' bake the crusts, then top with the sauce and cheeses and rebake about 12 minutes.Print Friendly and PDF
