I really hate to say this word, but I had LEFTOVER BBQ chicken from the other night. I just hated to throw it out so while I was at Central Market I was thinking of ways to use it. My son was having a few boys over to hang out and I knew I had to have food ready. So I bought two frozen plain pizza crusts and made BBQ Chicken Pizza. They were gone in about 45 seconds. I did get a small sliver to taste and it was pretty darn good!!
I just happened to have BBQ chicken, but if you don’t then just use rotisserie chicken or you can bake/grill a boneless, skinless breast and use that.
Serve this as a snack or put a garden salad next to it and in my book that is DINNER!
Here is the crust that I bought.
BBQ Chicken Pizza
Makes 1 (12") Pizza
1 cup cooked chicken shredded (use rotisserie or bake one boneless, skinless chicken breast at 400Â° for 20 minutes)
2 Tablespoons BBQ sauce
1/2 onion, sliced
1 cup Mozzarella, shredded
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 green onion, minced
Preheat oven to 500Â°. You want your oven really hot. If you have a pizza stone then place that in the oven while it is heating.
SautÃ© sliced onion in 1 Tablespoon olive oil over medium heat until translucent.
Remove pizza crust from freezer. Spread BBQ sauce in middle of crust.
Layer on shredded chicken, onions and cheese.
Brush the edge of the crust with olive oil so it does not burn in the oven.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until bubbly.
Sprinkle green onions on top.
