Whole Foods BBQ Chicken Pizza



As mentioned before we are pizza people. I was looking recently for an alternative to our typical Friday night feast, and came across a recipe for BBQ Chicken Pizza. We were more than pleased with our discovery! It tasted fantastic, and we were able to use up chicken we had cooked earlier in the week and finish up our homemade BBQ sauce. Now that the weather is starting to warm up, I cannot wait to try this on the grill! If there is one thing I have been wanting for a long time it’s a Pizza Peel. I’ll admit I have been doing pretty well without it using a combo of plastic cutting boards and parchment paper, therefore you don’t have to have a Pizza Peel but I know it’s on my wish list.

1) Dice prepared chicken and smother in 1/2 cup barbecue sauce.

2) Roll out and stretch the dough onto sheet pan(s) drizzled with olive oil, or onto a pizza peel or parchment paper sprinkled with cornmeal. (Make large pizzas or small pizzas, whatever you choose. Sprinkle crust with olive oil and salt.

3) Spoon the rest of the barbecue sauce onto the crust, spread evenly.

4) Top sauce with sliced mozzarella, sprinkle with chicken then onion. Lastly sprinkle with cilantro.

5) Preheat oven to 450 degrees. If you have a pizza stone, place in oven for preheat.  Bake for 15 minutes or until crust is golden brown and toppings are bubbly.

Freezing Directions:

At step 4, flash freeze and wrap in plastic wrap until ready to bake. To serve: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. If you have a pizza stone, place in oven for preheat.  Bake for 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown and toppings are bubbly.

Servings: 6

Notes: Please buy and use fresh mozzarella cheese, it makes all the difference in taste! And shred it yourself too!
