BBQ Chicken Pizza




We love pizza (if you haven't noticed) and are always looking for ways to change it up. We also got a real pizza stone recently and had to give it a try. This time we decided to try using a honey barbecue sauce instead of marinara. Instead of using our usual home-made dough (Whole Wheat Pizza Crust), we decided to use Trader Joe's refrigerated dough ball. Feel free to use any type of dough you like - whether it's homemade or store bought. The pizza stone really did seem to make a difference, the crust was cooked perfectly! We served it with an avocado and green onion salad.

Ingredients

  • 1 pizza dough
  • ~1/2 cup honey bbq sauce (or regular bbq sauce) - enough to cover the dough
  • 6 oz. mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken
  • 1-2 cups mozzarella cheese (depending on how cheesy you like your pizza)
  • cilantro, to sprinkle over pizza

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F
  2. Cover flattened pizza dough with the bbq sauce
  3. Add the mushrooms, onion, and chicken. Sprinkle with cheese and cilantro
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes until cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown

Uh this sounds delicious. Ahh, avocados...when I was in Cape Town to visit my husband's family, they ordered pizza with anchovies and avocados. That was the most strange pizza I ever had. It was not bad at all. Seeing the avocado next to your BBQ pizza reminds me of that South African pizza.
Cheers,

I made pizza dough for the first time on Friday and it was so much easier than I expected! I'm hooked - and will totally be trying this version!

I'm going to have to try your whole wheat pizza dough. I know we should be eating more whole wheat. Your salad looks perfect for the pizza but I love avocados. They are good for you and your skin.
Cheers,
