When I am meal planning, I often like to make things that are similar right next to each other to ensure that I use all of the ingredients and that there are no leftover components sitting in the fridge forever. While I was thinking about the buffalo wing dip , it reminded me something else that I have been wanting to try making for a while, a bbq chicken pizza. A bbq chicken pizza is basically a pizza with barbecue sauce instead of a tomato sauce that is topped with grilled chicken, onions and cheese. I have experimented with replacing the tomato sauce on pizzas before and I have alway been happy with the results so I was looking forward to trying a bbq sauce based pizza. At one point, I was thinking about just using hot sauce but I figured that a homemade bbq sauce would be even better and I had just picked up some liquid smoke that I wanted to try adding to give it a hickory smoke aroma.
The bbq chicken pizza turned out really well! The sweet and spicy hot bbq sauce was simply amazing as a pizza sauce all covered in melted cheese and the smoky aroma took it over the edge. Barbecue chicken is always good and the combination was definitely a winner on this pizza. Now I am looking forward to having the leftovers for breakfast.
BBQ Chicken Pizza
- 1/2 pound chicken breast (boneless and skinless)
- 1 pizza dough
- 1/2 cup bbq sauce
- 1 handful red onion (sliced)
- 1/2 cup gouda (grated)
- 1 cup mozzarella (grated)
- 1 ounce blue cheese (crumbled)
- 1 handful cilantro (chopped)
- Grill the chicken until just cooked all the way through, remove from heat, let sit and then slice it into 1/4 inch slices.
- Roll the pizza dough out on a lightly floured surface.
- Spread the bbq sauce over the dough followed by the chicken, onion, and cheeses.
- Bake in a preheated 500F/260C oven until golden brown, about 5-10 minutes.
- Serve garnished with the chopped cilantro.

That pizza looks perfect! Mine always look deformed. Barbecue sauce on a pizza is a nice twist on tradition. Love it!

Good looking pizza Kevin, full of delicious flavours and very colourful!

Ha – saw the title & thought of pizza on the BBQ. Someday soon….
Dude your blog is great 🙂 It's exactly what I was looking for since I want to start learning how to cook. Unfortunately I have no idea how to grill or saute. =/ Hopefully one day I will be able to make all the recipes you post here 🙂
I've been thinking of trying a BBQ chicken pizza! I like your combination of cheeses! We have a local BBQ joint that smokes chickens. I think I'll buy a smoked chicken from there to use for such a pizza 🙂
BBQ Chicken Pizza always needs Bacon

A classic pizza! Tangy bbq with blue cheese? Great.
Great looking pizza! I think some diced smoked, salty ham and sweet pineapple chunks would make nice additions as well…yum!!

This is absolutely a very delicious pizza. I love the flavor. Perfect.
This is on my menu for this week, do you think I could use the thin pizza crust for it? Or should I stick with the basic one.
Carmelizing the onions and cooking the chicken in BBQ sauce takes this to the next level!
