BBQ Chicken Pizza

April 29, 2013

I cannot even tell you how many times stopping at the grocery store and picking up a rotisserie chicken has saved my life on busy weeknights when I have very little time to whip up dinner for my family.  Instead of hitting up a drive-thru, spending $5.99 for a deliciously seasoned and fresh rotisserie chicken just makes more sense. The ideas are endless, obviously... last week, I decided to make BBQ chicken pizza.  I was craving cilantro but wasn't in the mood for any of the obviously 'south-of-the-border dishes that would include cilantro.  :)
Store-bought Pizza Crust
Your Favorite Barbecue Sauce
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1/4 Cup Chopped Cilantro
1/4 Cup Chopped Green Onions
2 Cups Mozzarella Cheese {or your favorite blend}
2 Cups Chopped Cooked Chicken
{This thin crust pizza crust by Pillsbury is so good!  It comes out perfect every single time.  I've even used it to make tarts and it worked like a charm.}
{I started by pulling the meat from the rotisserie chicken off the bone and chopping it into bite-size pieces.  Perfectly seasoned and cooked chicken. Such a perfect recipe starter.}
{I decided to use an oven-safe stone tray to make my pizza on and went with a free-form rectangular shape, to give it a fancy, rustic feel. :) I greased the tray with olive oil to aid in the crispiness.}
{POP! open your pizza dough.  You should see me when I have to open these things... scares me every would think I am detonating a bomb. LOL!}
{Spread out your dough and lift slightly around the edges, creating a crust.}
{Lightly drizzle the dough with olive oil then your barbecue sauce. Our favorite is Sweet Baby Ray's. So good and doesn't need any doctoring up.  It's perfectly sweet and spicy.}
{Roughly chop your cilantro and green onions.  You can obviously omit the cilantro if you are not a fan, but of course I think it's a key ingredient. :)  I have also subbed the green onion with thinly sliced red onion and it was delicious!}
{Sprinkle the cilantro and onion on the bbq sauced crust.}
{Top with the chopped chicken.}
{Drizzle a little more bbq sauce over the chicken for additional flavor. Yum!}
{Mozzarella cheese is of course the traditional cheese for pizza but I used this "4 Cheese Pizza" blend from my grocery store and it was so good! The 4 cheeses are: Mozzarella, Provolone, Parmesan and Romano.}
{After the cheese is sprinkled, top it with a few cilantro leaves for garnish.}
{Bake it in a 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown, crispy and delicious.}
{I served the BBQ chicken pizza with a salad of field greens, red pepper, Roma tomatoes and a balsamic vinaigrette. And wine for me, of course. :)
Making pizza at home always makes the kiddies feel so special.  And it couldn't be easier. 
Do you make pizza at home? What's your favorite one to make?
