Sunday Football: Homemade BBQ Chicken Pizza

by Marisa Olsen in , , ,


As many of you know, it's football season. Rather than creating a schism in my marriage, I am trying to embrace this period of my life. I am doing this via food (quel surpise). I may not necessarily "watch" the game, but I will cook in with my husband making greasy, comfort foods like pizza, artichoke dips, and chicken wings.

This week we made homepage BBQ Chicken Pizza and it was scrumptious. Here's the recipe:

Homemade BBQ Chicken Pizza 
Serves two to four

1 pizza crust
2 breasts of chicken
1/2 cup of BBQ sauce, plus more for drizzling (we used Stubb's)
1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup of gouda, shredded
1/2 red onion, caramelized

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the chicken breasts and mix with half of the BBQ sauce. Cook breasts for 20 minutes.

Roll and flatten the pizza dough and place on pizza stone. Cover the dough with the remaining BBQ sauce. Place shredded cheese over the sauce and add the red onions. 

Once the chicken breasts are cooked through, slice into smaller pieces and add to the top of the pizza. Drizzle with more BBQ sauce. 

Bake the pizza at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.

We freaked over this pizza. Let me know what you think.
