For even more flavor, sprinkle this chicken barbecue pizza with chopped cooked bacon and chopped fresh cilantro before adding the cheese.
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 (10-ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust
1/2 cup hickory smoke barbecue sauce
2 (6-ounce) packages grilled boneless, skinless chicken breast strips
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese with peppers
Garnish: chopped fresh parsley
Hickory smoke barbecue sauce
How to Make It
Sauté first 4 ingredients in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Drain well.
Unroll pizza crust; press or pat into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch pan.
Bake crust at 400° for 12 to 14 minutes. Spread 1/2 cup barbecue sauce evenly over top of pizza crust in pan. Arrange chicken strips evenly over barbecue sauce, top with onion mixture, and sprinkle evenly with cheese.
Bake at 400° for 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese melts. Garnish, if desired. Serve with extra sauce for dipping.
I hate when I have to change a recipe the first time using it, and if I do, I try not to comment because it's not very fair. However, given that this was the best meal I've had all year, I figured I'd make an exception. The thing changed was that I used pulled pork (using Lou's, slow roasted, pre cooked shredded pork) instead of shredded chicken for the simple fact I was looking for pulled pork recipes and somehow got lead to this. I do not regret it though! It was devoured in a matter of minutes and I can not wait to try it with the chicken, which is my preferred meat of choice. I have no doubt that that will earn even more stars!!
This wasn't what I expected. I didn't have predone chicken so I added the chicken with the onion and bell pepper. I think it was missing something though, like more veggies or something to make the flavor pop. I found it bland. My fiance finished it off because he loves melted cheese and BBQ sauce, and I made sure I added more cheese than what it called out. I don't think I'm making it again. There are many pizza recipes out there I can try that I will find great without the need to add something more.
Excellent! I used my own pizza dough and browned some ground turkey in place of the chicken. Delicious! We liked the sweetness the BBQ sauce gave instead of the regular tomato pizza sauce. This is definitely one recipe I'll make again.
This was a great recipe to do. I didn't have predone chicken strips so I just cooked some cubed fresh chicken breasts with salt, pepper and garlic powder on it in a skillet and topped the pizza with that. I will add more veggies next time as well. I oringinally sought out a pizza recipe as I had a predone pizza crust left over from another night so I used that instead of the dough and only cooked the finished pizza for 8 minutes. Will also add more cheese next time. Will do this recipe again!
