BBQ Chicken Pizza

BBQ Chicken Pizza
 There are a lot of children living here.

They like to eat.
(A blessing, and sometimes a curse)
They really like chicken.
And Sweet Baby Rays.
They will even go for chopped cilantro!
(A definite blessing)
They love hot pizza crust, 
just out of the oven covered in gooey cheese.
They love it when I make it….
And when I cuddle them silly…
(One of my biggest blessings…)
And when I let them eat chocolate bars for breakfast.
(Don’t call the health department, it’s not like EVERY day or anything…)
The end. 
BBQ Chicken Pizza
Time: (Not including the dough) 10 minutes prep + 15 minutes baking
Yield: 1 twelve inch pizza
Recipe adapted from The Pioneer Woman
1 C grilled chicken strips, chopped
3/4 C Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce
1 C mozzarella cheese, grated
1 C Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 C red onion, sliced
2 T cilantro, chopped
1. Early on in the day whip up a batch of this Honey Wheat Pizza Dough, or this Fabulous Pizza Crust. You can also make the dough 2-3 days ahead. Just a little heads up, both recipes make enough for 2 twelve inch pizzas. The BBQ Chicken Pizza Toppings you see above you are for only one twelve inch pizza. 
2. Spread some olive oil on a stone, or baking sheet. Place half of the pizza dough on the stone…or sheet…or what ever you are using. Let it hang out there for about 5 minutes. Then, spread it out to the corners of the pan. You don’t have to use a rolling pin here. Just stretch it out with your pretty little fingers. If you have big chubby fingers….well. All the better, I suppose. 
3. Take some grilled chicken strips and slice cut them into chunks.
4. Pour the Sweet Baby Ray’s over the top of the crust.
5. Sprinkle half of the cheese over the top of the sauce.
6. Then the chicken…
7. Then the onions…
8. Then the rest of the mozzarella and all of the Parmesan cheese.
9. Dot the top with a little bit more of the Sweet Baby Ray’s. It’s sweet, baby. Really sweet. 
10. Bake at 450 for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and the underside of the crust is golden. 
11. Sprinkle the cilantro over the top and vwalla, baby. You are going to be feeling pretty darn sweet your self.

    We make a bbq pizza fairly often at our house, it's definitely one of our favorites! Love the addition of cilantro, we always have it in our fridge, but never put it on the pizza!

    Do you preheat your pizza stone? It looks like you make it on it and then put it in the oven?

    Hi Ted,
    I have heard of people pre-heating the stone before they bake on it. I have to admit…I am nervous to try it! I feel like I might burn the heck out of my fingers. Let me know if you try it and how it goes!
