BBQ Chicken Pizza

Please excuse the lack of pictures for this post, I happened to be starving while making it and incidentally rushed through the prep process, sacrificing some eye candy for the blog. But don’t worry, the recipe itself is so quick and simple it almost doesn’t need any visual guide!

Prep Time: 30 mins

Cook Time: 15-20 mins

What You’ll Need:

  • 8 oz pizza crust(I get mine from California Pizza Kitchen, very inexpensive!)
  • 1 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 1/2 cup Barbecue Sauce
  •  1 tspn olive oil
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 16 ounces, weight Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, Sliced Thinly
  • 1/2 whole Red Onion, Cut In Half And Sliced Very Thin
  •  Chopped Cilantro


1.) Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2.) Salt chicken breasts on both sides, then place in an ovenproof dish. Pour BBQ sauce over the breasts and turn them over to coat. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until chicken is done. Remove from oven and cut into a fine dice. Set aside.

3.) Increase oven temperature to 500 degrees.

4.) Roll/stretch out pizza crust. Lay it on a sheet pan drizzled with olive oil. Drizzle a little olive oil on the crust, then sprinkle on a little salt.

5.) Spoon a couple of tablespoons of extra BBQ sauce on the crust and spread it evenly. Top sauce with half the sliced mozzarella. Sprinkle on half the diced chicken and thinly sliced red onion.

6.) Sprinkle again with a little salt, then bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and toppings are bubbly.

7.) Remove from the oven and sprinkle on plenty of chopped cilantro.

8.) Voila! Comment and tell me how it tastes!
