BBQ Chicken Pizza

For better flavor and less sodium, we barbecued the chicken breasts before preparing the pizza. To save time, use 2 cups deli-roasted or frozen chopped cooked chicken. Combine with 1/3 cup barbecue sauce and microwave at HIGH 2 to 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Preheat oven to 350° and follow recipe as directed beginning with step 3.

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size)


  • 3 none (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2/3 cup spicy barbecue sauce, divided
  • 1 none (16-ounce) Italian-cheese flavored pizza crust
  • 1/3 cup slivered red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) preshredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 350°.

Place chicken on an ungreased baking sheet; spoon 1/3 cup barbecue sauce over chicken. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until chicken is done. Cool; chop and set aside.

Spread remaining 1/3 cup sauce evenly over pizza crust, leaving a 1-inch border. Top crust evenly with chicken and remaining ingredients.

Bake at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese melts. Cut into 8 slices.
