BBQ Chicken Pizza

This was something that we just made up based on a lot of barbeque chicken pizzas we've had over the years and not only was this the best BBQ chicken pizza we ever had, it was probably the best pizza pizza we had, period.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup of BBQ sauce
  • 1/3 cup of orange juice
  • 1 pizza crust (either premade or homemade)
  • 2 medium tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1/2 red onion (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp of fresh basil (minced)
  • 1 tbsp of fresh oregano (minced)
  • 1 tbsp of fresh sage (minced)
  • 2 cups of cheese: Formaggio with Roasted Garlic, Tomato, and Basil (shredded)
  1. The night before or a few hours before, marinade the chicken breast in 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce and 1/3 cup of orange juice; the orange juice is a trick Will taught me that helps meat absorb more flavor due to its acidity. 
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  3. Cook chicken for 20-25 minutes or until done. 
  4. While the chicken is cooking, chop the tomatoes, onions, and fresh herbs and shred the cheese. 
  5. Place the pizza crust on a pizza pan.
  6. Spread the remaining 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce over the pizza crust. 
  7. Sprinkle the tomatoes and onions over the pizza crust.
  8. Once chicken is done cooking, turn the oven up to 375 degrees for the pizza.
  9. Shred the chicken into bite size pieces and sprinkle it over the pizza crust. 
  10. Sprinkle the herbs over the pizza crust. 
  11. Finally, sprinkle the cheese over the whole pizza. 
  12. Cook the pizza for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden. 
  13. Cut into slices and serve!
