BBQ Chicken Pizza

BBQ Chicken Pizza – Although I do love pizza, I am not one that craves it often. But when I do, I don’t want just any old pizza. I want toppings upon toppings, delicious gooey cheese and a great crust. I have my favorite local place but I also really like California Pizza Kitchen. I like that they have lots of different variations of your standard pizza.

Of course, the first time I ate there (in college), I had BBQ Chicken Pizza! It’s so good!! Now that I can make my own pizza at home, I thought that I would give it a try.

No joke. This turned out just as good as any CPK pizza that I’ve had!! I don’t order the BBQ Chicken Pizza there anymore, there are too many other items to try, but at least now I know I can make this on my own when I crave it!

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe pizza dough
  • 2 medium onions, halved and sliced into half moons
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1/2-1 cup BBQ sauce, your favorite (I used Williamson Brothers.)

  • basil, for garnish

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Roll out dough to desired size and shape.

3. Place on pizza pan and bake for 6 minutes. (This will help it not to get soggy.)

4. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions. Salt & pepper to taste. Cook until onions are soft and beginning to brown, 7-8 minutes.

5. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

6. Add chicken. Season with salt & pepper and cook through, about 5 minutes.

7. Add 1/4 c. BBQ and stir to coat. Remove from heat.

8. After removing the pre-baked pizza crust from the oven, add BBQ to taste. Top with onions and cheese.

9. Place back into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, until crust is brown and cheese is melted.

10. Garnish with basil.
