Barbecue chicken pizza with superb texture and flavor with the sweet and tangy taste from the bbq sauce, meaty sauce from the chicken with onion and red pepper. It is simply delicious! I used homemade bbq sauce but feel free to use your favorite bbq brand.
For this barbecue chicken pizza, I mixed the chicken, and onion with sauce because I want the chicken to absorb the sauce but if you want it a little faster just spread the sauce over the dough then top with the chicken, cheese, then pepper. For the chicken, I used the chicken breasts from a whole chicken and for the cheese, I bought blocks of cheeses and shred them myself it is better than store-bought shredded cheese.
You might want to try;
- 2 balls Pizza dough
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 4 cups shredded cooked chicken
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- shredded cheese (I used mozzarella, pepper jack)
- 1/8 cup cornmeal
- 1 small bell pepper (rinsed, seeded, and chopped)
- 1 small sweet/red onion (chopped/diced)
- Green onion (chopped), optional
Heat the bbq sauce over medium heat, add onion, and combine.
I used the chicken breast from a whole roasted chicken then shred it. Add the shredded chicken, and combine.
Allow everything to warm up and set aside.
I'll link the pizza dough if you need a recipe for it and the recipe dough makes 2 pizzas. If you want to make a pizza you can half the recipe or refreeze the other dough. If you don't want to make the dough yourself you can buy it from a pizza store and use it. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F. Sprinkle some cornmeal over pizza baking sheets and set aside.
Roll the dough stretch each dough (if you're making two) in a circular form, you want the dough light/thin then place it on the prepared pan brush half of the oil over it to prevent the dough from being soggy. Repeat the process on the second dough.
Top with chicken bbq sauce and spread the dough. Use a little sauce or as much as you like.
Top with shredded cheese and chopped pepper. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes until golden brown and cheese bubbles.
Remove and sprinkle some chopped green onion.
Slice and enjoy it!

After making the dough just continue with this process here. I love a lot of sauce on my dough if you don't like a lot of sauce in yours just adjust to your preference.
