With the most delicious Chicken Barbecue shredded and packaged in small portions in the freezer, I knew Barbecue Chicken Pizza was the Friday night pizza of choice! If you ever have leftover cooked chicken. I recommend shredded it or cutting it up and freezing it for use in other dishes. It makes life so deliciously simple!
This sauce is sweet with the tang of the traditional tomato sauce and sprinkled liberally with cooked chicken--resulting in a perfect version of BBQ Chicken Pizza. YUM!
Barbecue Chicken Pizza Recipe
recipe by adorkablerecipes.blogspot.com
1/2 batch Homemade Dough (or enough dough of your choice for 1 pizza)
1/2 cup pasta sauce
2-3 Tbsp sweet barbecue sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
1/4 large onion, chopped
1-1/2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
1/2-3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven with pizza stone to 500 degrees.
Prepare pizza dough with lightly floured hands. Sprinkle flexible cutting board or pizza peel with corn meal for easy transfer.
In a small bowl stir together pasta sauce and barbecue sauce. Adjust to suit your tastes. Stir in minced garlic. Spread sauce evenly over the pizza crust. Sprinkle with jalapeno, onion and chicken. Top with shredded cheese. Sprinkle pepper over the pizza.
Once the oven and pizza stone are preheated, carefully transfer pizza to the stone. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until cheese is golden and bubbly and crust is lightly browned.
Remove from the oven and let set for 2 minutes before slicing as desired. Serve with additional pasta sauce/bbq sauce or Ranch dressing.
