Saturday Supper: BBQ Chicken Pizza

S has been begging for pizza for weeks now, so the other night when I was faced with a rotisserie chicken that had been sitting in the fridge, uneaten, for five days, I decided to make him a chicken pizza. At first I thought I'd make a buffalo wing pizza until I realized we have no Frank's Red Hot sauce. Bummer. So even though I find BBQ sauce rather repulsive, I decided to make a BBQ chicken pizza.
And that's when I discovered that BBQ sauce on a pizza is not repulsive at all. It's phenomenal! I'm so glad I made two pizzas because we ate it for three meals in a row - unheard of around here.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

Use our go-to quick and easy no-rise pizza crust recipe for the crust

1/2 - 1 rotisserie chicken or two skinless, boneless chicken breasts
~2 c. BBQ sauce - our favorite is Sweet Baby Ray's
1 small onion or 1/2 of a large onion (red is delicious if you have it), sliced into thin half-circles
8 oz part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
Fresh cilantro, chopped

1. Make crust and spread into pizza crisping pan prepared with a generous coating of non-stick spray. Spread with 1/2 c. BBQ sauce

2. Cut chicken into small pieces, toss in a bowl with remaining BBQ sauce until well coated. Alternatively you can roast the chicken breast with a little extra BBQ sauce in a 350 degree oven for ~ 20 minutes, until chicken is cooked through

3. Sprinkle half of the cheese over the BBQ sauce covered crust

4. Top with BBQ sauce soaked chicken, dolloping on any remaining BBQ sauce too. Cover evenly with onions

5. Sprinkle with remaining cheese

6. Bake at 425 for ~12 minutes until cheese is bubble and crust is golden

7. Remove from oven and immediately top generously with chopped fresh cilantro

Serve warm
