BBQ Chicken Pizza

This BBQ Chicken Pizza Recipe is easy to throw together for an easy weeknight dinner or for watching the game with friends. The topping combinations are endless!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. refrigerated pizza dough, at room temperature*
  • 1 ½ cups shredded chicken, (see blog post for how to make shredded chicken)
  • 1 ½ cups KC Masterpiece® 816 Original BBQ Sauce, divided
  • 1/3 cup banana peppers, sliced and patted dry
  • 1 ½ cups low-moisture mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup Gouda cheese, shredded**
  • Pinch crushed red pepper flakes, (optional)
  • Freshly cracker pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  • Divide the dough in half and roll each one out on a floured surface.
  • Place onto two (10-incpizza pans and use your hands to finish spreading evenly over the pan.
  • Toss the shredded chicken into ¾ cup of BBQ Sauce and set aside.
  • Spread the remaining BBQ sauce over the pizza crust.
  • Distribute the chicken and banana peppers over each pizza. Top with cheese.
  • Add the pinch of red pepper flakes and freshly ground black pepper if desired.
  • Bake the pizzas for 10-12 minutes until the cheese is melted and the crust begins to brown.
  • Let it cool for 2 minutes prior to slicing and serving. Enjoy!

Notes

*Refrigerated pizza dough should come to room temperature first, otherwise it’s very difficult to spread. (Don’t let it become warm though.)
**I like the flavor of smoked Gouda in this pizza, but a variety of Gouda flavors work well!
Other topping options for this pizza include: red onions, pineapple, bell peppers, bacon, goat cheese, Feta cheese, blue cheese, caramelized onions, and mushrooms!
