Growing up, I was never a fan of pizza. As I got older, though, I discovered I really disliked the tomato sauce on pizza, not pizza itself. So now, I love making homemade pizza, using different, interesting sauces on my crust to replace the tomato sauce. Pesto sauce, with fragrant basil, is one of my new favorite pizza toppings. And here’s another idea: barbecue sauce. This quick recipe ought to please both the pizza-lovers AND the bbq-lovers in your family.
BBQ Chicken Pizza
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
2 Tbs barbecue sauce
1 (12-inch) premade pizza crust
2 (4 oz) boneless, skinless chicken breast, cooked in barbeque sauce, cubed
1/4 purple onion, sliced
1 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
Preheat oven to 450° F. Spread barbeque sauce over pizza crust. Place cubed chicken, onion and cheese onto crust. Bake pizza for 20 to 25 minutes or according to crust package directions. Sprinkle cilantro over pizza.
*Check temperature and cook time on pizza crust.
