Homemade BBQ Pizza

Our Fourth of July Weekend was full of BBQ, starting with BBQ chicken pizza, yum!

Ingredients for 1 pizza
Chicken tenders or 1/2 rotisserie chicken
BBQ sauce of your choosing (we used Sweet Baby Ray's)
1 medium Red onion
1 Tbsp Fresh chopped cilantro
3/4 cups Gouda cheese
1 cup Mozzarella
3/4 cup Parmesan


If you need to prepare the chicken tenders then put them in a skillet to brown and once cool chop into small shreds. Place the chicken into a bowl and mix with 2 Tbsp of BBQ sauce until well coated. For the dough if you want to go with semi-home made then just grab a Pillsbury Pizza dough roll and go for it. If you are feeling super home-made then pick out a dough recipe (I haven't found one that I love enough to claim). There are lots of easy ones including yeastless. I would encourage you to add a Tablespoon of honey to the dough to give it a sweeter flavor. Once you have your dough laid out on a greased sheet, paint the dough with the BBQ sauce. Don't be shy with the sauce, I was pretty timid and our pizza was a bit dry. Add the cheeses and the the chicken on top. Top with a few strings of onion and put into the oven at 400 F. Take it out when the cheese is bubbling and light brown. Sprinkle with the fresh cilantro for freshness. Dig in!
