Barbecue Chicken Pizza

This is a yummy pizza that my sister and I made using a leftover grilled chicken breast, and I'm thinking it would be equally good made with rotisserie chicken as well. The crust is the standard recipe that I always use when I make pizza, and it can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator.

Barbecue Chicken Pizza
1 pizza crust (see Pizza Crust recipe)
Barbecue sauce (I prefer Sweet Baby Ray's)
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, sliced
1 grilled chicken breast, thinly sliced
About 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1 jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced

Preheat convection oven to 475 degrees F. Prepare pizza crust according to directions. Brush a coating of barbecue sauce over the pizza crust. Arrange mozzarella slices over the barbecue sauce, then top with chicken, onion, and jalapenos. Drizzle more barbecue sauce lightly over all. Bake in preheated oven for 10 - 12 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

The pizza crust can be prepared a day or two in advance if desired and kept in the refrigerator until needed.

You'll need some sliced mozzarella cheese.

Thinly slice a grilled chicken breast.

Brush barbecue sauce on the pizza crust, then top with mozzarella cheese, sliced chicken, onions, jalapenos, and then drizzle with more barbecue sauce.

Bake for 10 - 12 minutes.

  7. I would LOVE this, Anita! My hubby is a traditional pizza guy, liking cheese and pepperoni. I like other flavors, too. I try to make pizza once a week, so I'll have to give this a try.
