mmmmm, mondays: bbq chicken pizza


i've mentioned before, i'm on a pizza kick. here is one of my pizza favorites. for homemade pizza dough, check out our last monday's post for a couple of great recipes.

bar-be-cue chicken pizza


bar-be-cue sauce (your favorite store-bought sauce will work great)

4 cups shredded smoked gouda cheese

1/2 or 1 whole red onion, minced (depending on how much you like onions)

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder (to taste)


cut the chicken breasts into bite sized chunks. heat a saute pan with about 1 tablespoon of canola oil. saute the chicken breast chunks until cooked through and browned. season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. remove from the heat.

spray a pizza pan or a jelly roll pan with non-stick spray. roll out the pizza dough to the edges of the pan. if you like a thin crust pizza, cook your dough for about five minutes before loading with toppings.

top the dough with bar-be-cue sauce, onions, seasoned-cooked chicken breast pieces, and gouda cheese. cook in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and starting to golden in color.

slice up and enjoy!
