BBQ Chicken Pizza

For my crust recipes see this post.

This recipe was derived partially from my love of The Pioneer Woman’s BBQ Chicken Pizza and partially from “these-are-the-only-ingredients-I-have-in-the-fridge.” Yep, I’m that kind of cook.

Emily’s BBQ Chicken Pizza

  • 1 pizza crust (thick or thin)
  • BBQ sauce
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Pepper Jack Cheese
  • 1 medium red onion
  • olive oil

Place chicken breasts in oven safe baking dish. Spread all sides with BBQ sauce. I used our homemade Honey-Pepper BBQ sauce from our pig roast, shown here. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees and juices run clear.

Slice chicken breast and pepper-jack cheese. Mine cheese was pre-sliced as it was the left-over cheese from our pig roast. Waste not!

Thinly slice the onions, cook in sauce pan drizzled with olive oil until caramelized.

Roll out crust, spread a thin layer of olive oil over crust then spread a couple tablespoons of BBQ sauce over crust. Do not drown the crust in sauce!

Layer the crust with cheese, chicken, and top with caramelized onions. Drizzle a little more BBQ sauce over entire pizza.

Bake at 425 (thin crust) or 375 (thick crust, pre-baked for 8 minutes) for 15-20 minutes until crust is golden brown.
