BBQ Chicken Pizza Recipe

Ingredients

For BBQ chicken:

10 ounces boneless/skinless chicken breasts cut into 3/4-inch cubes

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons favorite BBQ sauce (we use a spicy-sweet sauce)

For pizza:

2 balls CPK pizza dough or other premade pizza dough

Cornmeal, semolina, or flour for handling raw pizza dough

1/2 cup BBQ sauce

2 tablespoons shredded smoked Gouda cheese

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1/4 small red onion, sliced in 1/8-inch pieces

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

Make the BBQ chicken: In a large frying pan, cook the chicken in olive oil over medium-high heat until just cooked, 5 to 6 minutes. Do not overcook. Set aside in the refrigerator until chilled through. Once chilled, coat the chicken with 2 tablespoons BBQ sauce; set aside in the refrigerator.

Preheat the oven: Place a pizza stone in the center of the oven and preheat to 500ºF for 1 hour before cooking pizzas.

Construct the pizzas: For each pizza, use a large spoon to spread 1/4 cup BBQ sauce evenly over the surface of the prepared dough within the rim. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon smoked Gouda cheese over the sauce. Cover with 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella.

Distribute half the chicken pieces evenly over the cheese (approximately 18 pieces). Place approximately 18 to 20 pieces of red onion over the surface. Sprinkle an additional 1/4 cup mozzarella over the top of the pizza.

Transfer pizza (or pizzas; the 2 pizzas may be prepared simultaneously if you are careful in placing the pizzas at opposite corners of your pizza stone) to the oven; bake until crust is crisp and golden and the cheese at the center is bubbly, 8 to 10 minutes. When pizza is cooked, carefully remove it from the oven; sprinkle 1 tablespoon cilantro over the hot surface. If necessary, repeat with remaining ingredients for a second pizza. Slice and serve.

Enjoy 🙂
