BBQ Chicken Pizza

Last night, Patrick declared this "THE GREATEST PIZZA ON EARTH!"

That's a lot to live up to, people! So much pressure! ;)

But seriously, this pizza was absolutely delicious! The best part is, he left this morning for the weekend so the leftovers are ALL MINE! Hehe!

BBQ Chicken Pizza

1 package of pizza dough (I used Trader Joe's fat free garlic and herb pizza dough.)
2 chicken breasts, cubed
1 tablespoon sesame oil
3/4 cup bbq sauce (I used my homemade bbq sauce. Love it!)
2/3 cup pizza sauce
16 ounces mozzarella cheese (I used low fat cheese)
1/2 red onion, chopped
Italian seasoning
Red pepper flakes
Fresh cracked black pepper

Marinate cubed chicken in 1/4 cup bbq sauce for at least 30 minutes.

Spread pizza dough over lightly greased cookie sheet or place onto a pizza stone.

If you like crunchy pizza, bake dough for about 3 minutes without anything on it.

In a frying pan, heat the oil and then saute chicken until cooked through. Throw the onions in at the last minute to cook just a little. You can use any ol' oil you want for this, but I'm a big fan of the sesame oil.

Mix 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce and 2/3 cup of pizza sauce in a bowl. Spread over warm pizza dough.

Spread cheese over the sauce.

Add chicken and onion.

Sprinkle with italian seasoning, red pepper flakes and fresh black pepper as desired.

Bake until cheese is melted and dough is cooked through.

Now I'm starving! Off to heat up the leftovers! :)

  3. That looks yuuuuuummy!!

    Ok, so I had a weird dream last night in which I had to kill a chicken. I called you and you walked me through it step by step and thought nothing of it. After be-headed the chicken I was so disturbed I ended up throwing away the headless chicken because I refused to do anything more to the poor thing! You thought I was being a total weanie about it...very strange.

  4. Where is the recipe for the home made BBQ sauce? Sounds yummy! I am shopping at Trader Joe's the week. And why don't we have Trader Joe's in Texas? I love it and the two and a half buck Chuck!!!
