BBQ Chicken Pizza

BBQ Chicken Pizza | Hard Parade
Hi! I just got back from vacation on Wednesday night, so sorry for the lack of posts (not that anyone is out there reading these - hello? Anyone?)! I was down in South Carolina on Hilton Head Island, aka the best place anywhere. My family has been going for years and years and years and I was finally able to join them this year since jetBlue started offering direct flights from Boston to Savannah, GA (which is about a 45 minute drive from the island). So, now I'm back with a tan (okay, a burn) and ready to start cooking again!

This was my 'going away' pizza last week, a final meal before heading off to SC for a few days so Dan and I DID IT UP. You can pretty much make this pizza from anything that you have in the fridge, so long as you have barbecue sauce. We piled on tomatoes, onions, and cheese and cooked the pizza longer than usual so it was extra crispy crunchy.

BBQ Chicken Pizza
Ingredients:
  • Ready made pizza crust (I used Pillsbury's Thin Crust)
  • 1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's Hot and Sweet)
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken, without the skin
    • You can also use cooked chicken breasts here instead
  • 1 cup baby tomatoes, quartered
  • 8-oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • Freshly cracked black pepper and kosher salt

Directions:
  • Pre-cook the crust according to the directions. While it pre-cooks, slice the onion, tomatoes, cheese, and shred the chicken. 
  • Take out the crust and raise the oven temperature to 450. Spread barbecue sauce all over the crust, leaving about a half inch border around the edges. Top with the rotisserie chicken and layer the mozzarella slices on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. 
  • Evenly distribute the tomatoes and onion on top of the pizza and again sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until browned and crispy (depending on how crunchy you like it). 
  • Remove from the oven and cut into even slices and enjoy! I also add a dash of hot sauce to my piece before chowing down - even some ranch dressing!
