1 (10 oz.) can refrigerated pizza crust
2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cubed
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 red pepper, chopped
2/3 cup barbecue sauce
1 cup shredded cheese
1-2 green onions, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat an 11x17 inch baking sheet or round pizza pan with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Spread pizza crust into prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for about 5 minutes; remove crust from oven and set aside. Meanwhile, heat additional tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken, season with salt and pepper to taste, and cook until just starting to brown. Add onion, garlic and red peppers to skillet and continue cooking for an additional 3-5 minutes, until vegetables are tender and chicken is cooked through. Spread partially baked pizza crust with barbecue sauce. Spoon chicken and vegetable mixture over sauce. Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Return pan to oven and bake for an additional 8-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and crust is cooked through. Remove pan from oven and sprinkle pizza with green onions. Slice and serve.
With the prepared pizza dough, this is a quick and easy pizza to throw together for a weeknight meal. Of course, if you have more time, try using homemade pizza dough. I like to use a mixture of mozzarella and cheddar cheese, but feel free to use whatever you like best. This is also a great way to use up leftover chicken, and if you're really in a hurry, you could even use the prepared chicken breast strips. It never hurts to throw a green pepper in with the red either. And if you want to make it extra yummy, add some cooked, crumbled bacon before baking.
Who Dished It Up First
I'm not the first person to make barbecue chicken pizza, but this is my way of doing it.
