If you can use Thai peanut sauce, strawberry jam, and refried beans in place of traditional pizza sauce (not all together, of course!), I thought, then why not barbecue sauce??! I have seen it done before and it always sounded good, so I decided to give it a try.
I baked some chicken with a special Dean's BBQ seasoning, shredded it, added some scallions, tomatoes, and garlic (oh, and don't forget CHEESE), and there you have it! A fantastic and different pizza to shake up the old routine. Yum!
BBQ Chicken Pizza
a KitchenJoy original recipe
makes 1 pizza
1 recipe pizza dough
about 1/3 to 1/2 cup barbecue sauce (our favorite is Sweet Baby Ray's!)
1 chicken breast, cooked and shredded, seasoned to your liking
shredded cheese (enough to cover- your favorite variety!)
1 scallion, thinly sliced
2-3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
grape tomatoes, sliced
Prepare dough as directed. Preheat oven to 500.
Spread crust evenly with BBQ sauce. Top with chicken, followed by cheese, scallions, garlic and tomatoes.
Bake 10-12 min. or until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly. Cool slightly, then slice and serve!
