Barbecued Chicken Pizza

Dani developed this great Barbecued Chicken Pizza recipe a few years ago. Tangy, hearty and loaded with grilled chicken, bacon, green onions and cheese all on a homemade crust slathered with Barbecue Sauce. It tastes and smells amazing!

Served with a tossed green salad, it makes for a complete and very kid-friendly meal. I hope it will become a favorite in your home as well. The topping amounts I’m giving are just guidelines so you can adjust to your family’s tastes. Want more bacon? You bet! Just add it on.

Barbecued Chicken Pizza

For the crust – Use our favorite pizza crust recipe. (Dani made the crust for our pizza tonight from this recipe using half whole wheat and half white flour. It was scrumptious!)

After the crust has risen on the pan, spread with your favorite BBQ sauce and sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.  (We make our own BBQ sauce with tomato paste, honey, liquid smoke, onion salt, pepper, garlic powder and minced onion, all to taste.)

Spread cut up cooked chicken (approx. two chicken breasts), cooked crumbled bacon (a good-sized handful) and sliced green onions (or dried chives in a pinch) over the sauce and Parmesan cheese. Top with mozzarella and/or cheddar cheese (2 – 3 cups or so). Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and golden.

  • Ummm…actually Mom, I used all whole wheat tonight.  Usually I do half and half, but thought I would try something a little different tonight:).

  • Okay, so Dani used ALL whole wheat flour and it was scrumptious…..and healthy!:lol:

  • Can you give a little more help with the BBQ sauce recipe? I am trying to move all my staples to home made ones to save money and this is a big use item at our house. My son and husband love BBQ sauce. I appreciate all your recipes as we live in similar circumstances (one income, homeschool family) and new recipes on a budget are great. Thank you.

  • Marjo – We simply open a can, or two, of tomato paste and put them in a bowl.  They I add all the other mentioned ingredients (just drops of the liquid smoke) stir and taste, the adjust the honey and seasonings, stir and taste….until it’s the taste I want.  It’s never quite the same thing twice.  You can make this really sweet for certain dishes or if you’re family likes it that way by adding more honey.  If you like it spicy, try adding some chili powder.  Play around with it.  You’ll get a version you love.
