Lose the bun and move shredded barbecue chicken onto a pizza crust for a tasty fusion of Italian and Tex-Mex flavors.

How to Make It

Step 1

Warm oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook, turning once, 5 to 6 minutes per side, until just cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, cut into 1/2-inch cubes. Toss chicken with 2 Tbsp. barbecue sauce in a bowl.

Step 2

Position a rack in bottom of oven and preheat to 450°F. Place pizza crust on a large baking sheet and spread with remaining 1/2 cup barbecue sauce. Sprinkle with half of both cheeses, arrange chicken on top, and then add remaining cheese and onion.

Step 3

Bake until cheese is melted and golden brown, 20 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro, cut into slices and serve hot.

Easy and delicious! Used refrigerated pizza dough and rotisserie chicken, with bbq sauce I had left over from another recipe. The kids loved it!

I made this for company (along with a white pizza) and this was a hit. The kids loved it too. Will make again.

This was so easy and delicious! I cooked the chicken in the crockpot smothered in BBQ sauce so it made the prep time even faster. If you like the California Pizza Kitchen version of this you will LOVE this one you can make at home. Can't wait to make this one again!

Delicious! My husband was beside himself! I grilled the chicken and had intended to do the pizza on the grill as well but got caught in a thunderstorm. I used my pampered chef pizza stone in the oven and the crust was super crispy. next time I will do it on the grill and maybe substitute crumbled blue cheese for the Gouda. good bbq sauce is a must.

This pizza was FANTASTIC and simple! I already had pizza dough made and in the freezer, so putting the rest together was a piece of cake! I do think this tastes a lot like California Pizza Kitchen's BBQ pizza or for those of you familiar with Winter Park, tastes like Hernando's BBQ pizza! YUMMY!

So easy to make and full of yummy flavors! I used Curley's BBQ Sauce and Morningstar Chicken Strips for a vegetarian pizza. Made the rest as directed - excellent!
