BBQ Chicken Pizza

We’re heading to Chicago this weekend and I could not be more excited because it’s one of my favorite cities. Chicago is filled with great places to visit and amazing charm…and I can’t forget to mention the delicious food!

Just thinking about Chicago-style pizza is making my mouth water. The buttery, deep-dish crust and all of the ooey, gooey toppings make for an unbelievable pizza…New Yorkers, you don’t know what you’re missing!

In anticipation of our mini-getaway, I had pizza on my mind this past weekend. To help satisfy my craving, I got to work and created a BBQ Chicken Pizza that my husband claimed as being “one of his all-time favorite pizzas.” Now that’s saying something…

BBQ Chicken Pizza

Ingredients (for one pizza — double for two pizzas):

  • 1 fresh pizza dough (this recipe makes two pizza crusts)
  • Kosher Salt (to taste)
  • Freshly ground pepper (to taste)
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce (or more, depending on the size of the crust)
  • 1 cup rotisserie chicken, shredded and coated in BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 whole red onion, cut in half and sliced thin
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded (or more, depending on the size of the crust)


  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  • Roll/stretch out one pizza crust and place on a greased baking sheet or greased pizza pan; sprinkle crust with salt and pepper.
  • Spoon barbecue sauce over the crust. Top sauce with shredded chicken, onions and top with shredded mozzarella.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes or until crust is golden brown and toppings are bubbly.
  • Repeat with second crust (if you decide to make two pizzas).
