BBQ Chicken Pizza

This is a quick dinner and it was easy!  We had half of the pizza leftover for lunch the next day.  You can make it with any toppings YOU like.  This combination worked well for us.
  • 1 can of pizza crust
  • 1 C. BBQ sauce
  • 1 C. chicken breast, shredded or chopped into cubes
  • ½ red onion, sliced thin
  • ½ yellow bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 1/3 C. banana pepper rings
  • 1 (2 oz.) can black olives, sliced
  • 2 C. mozzarella cheese, shredded
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Unroll the pizza dough on a half sheet pan (17”x 12”) that has been sprayed with cooking spray, press the dough flat to cover the entire pan.
  3. Bake for about 7 minutes, or just until the dough is lightly browned.
  4. Remove from the oven and build the pizza.
  5. Spread the BBQ sauce over the partially baked pizza crust and sprinkle the rest of ingredients over the sauce in the order they are listed, finishing with the cheese.
  6. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and lightly browned.
  7. Remove the pizza from the oven and allow it to sit for 5 minutes, then cut into pieces and serve.
Tips and Tricks:
  • You can roast a chicken breast in a 375 degree oven for 1 hour for this recipe or just use the chicken breast off of a Rotisserie chicken.
  • I use Pillsbury THIN Pizza Crust.  I prefer a thin crust pizza, but Pillsbury makes a Traditional crust, also.
  • I use Sweet Baby Ray’s Spicy and Sweet BBQ sauce or Kraft Spicy Honey, but you can use whatever sauce you like.
