Barbeque Chicken Pizza

Standard

I’ve been wanting to make this for a long time now.  But, I love my pizza sauce so much that I never want to stray away from it when I make pizza.  I came across this recipe  on AllRecipes which combines marinara sauce and barbeque sauce.  This was a great way to combine my love of pizza sauce and try the barbeque sauce, too.  I meant to buy a red onion to go with the chicken but I completely forgot it. So, I used what we had on hand and tend to put on pizza anyway- sweet red peppers on my no-cheese half and mushrooms on Scott’s half. I really liked this sauce- the flavor of the barbeque sauce was good but wasn’t too overwhelming.  Scott- who normally eats sausage, pepperoni, bacon (anything but chicken!) loved it and said he would like to try chicken again now.  I will definitely make this again!

Ingredients

  • 4-5 chicken breast tenders, cut into chunks
  • salt [and pepper
  • italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup barbeque sauce (I used Sweet Baby Rays)
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 pizza crust
  • 1 cup pizza cheese
  • desired toppings
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  1. Cook salt and peppered chicken in a skillet with olive oil over medium heat. Sprinkle with italian seasoning. Add a couple tablespoons of barbeque sauce while cooking.
  2. Mix remaining barbeque sauce and pizza sauce in a small bowl. Spread evenly over pizza crust.
  3. Sprinkle pizza cheese. Arrange chicken and any other toppings on top.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes in a preheated 45o degree oven or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with cilantro while hot.
