I have been excited for dinner tonight since I left for work around 7:30 a.m. Why? you may ask. Because we are having my world famous BBQ Chicken Pizza.
You have to understand, I'm pretty much a cheese and pepperoni only kind of girl when it comes to pizza. The very thought of chicken on a pizza is usually quite disgusting to me. But this recipe is something I created for Matt, who enjoyed a similar pizza at this restaurant we used to go to in Charlotte. I kept trying to copy the restaurant version until I mastered it (SUPER easy!), and now we are both in LOVE with it! (It's also pretty low-calorie as long as you watch the kind of BBQ sauce and crust you use!)
Want the recipe?
First here's your shopping list:
3-4 Chicken Breasts, cooked and shredded. (See Crockpot Chicken idea!)
1 Red Onion (small) sliced thin
1 SMALL Bunch Fresh Cilantro chopped finely
2 Cups Mozzarella Cheese
1 Pizza Crust-I usually use the Pillsbury kind in the can because it's super good and quick!
BBQ Sauce-I ususally use Sweet Baby Rays because it's the best! (not very low-calorie however)
1. Preheat your oven. Grease your pizza pan or cookie sheet and prepare your pizza crust. I'm assuming everyone knows how to do these things. :)
2. Cover the crust with the BBQ sauce. Again, assuming we're all good here.
3. Layer the chicken, onion and cilantro like normal pizza toppings. Cover with Mozzarella. (I also usually do a thin "swirl" of BBQ sauce on top of everything, to make it look pretty.)
4. Bake according to your pizza crust baking directions. Enjoy!
You have to PROMISE ME that if you try it you let me know what you think! It's okay to tell me if you don't like it. I'll know you clearly didn't make it right... ;) Kidding, of course!
