Healthy BBQ Chicken Pizza

Course: Dinner
Cuisine: American

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken (deboned and shredded)
  • 1/2 cup red onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1 pizza crust (Pillsbury Pizza Crust Classic)
  • 1/2 cup bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce (Sweet Baby Rays)
  • 2 cups Shredded cheese (I use Mozzarella and Colby-Jack)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 and place your pizza stone or pizza pan in the oven.
  • Next assemble the pizza, place a piece of parchment paper down, unroll the dough onto the parchment paper.
  • Next place about ½ cup of BBQ sauce onto the center of the pizza and spread it evenly making sure you cover the pizza.
  • Then evenly spread about 2 cups of shredded chicken around on the pizza.
  • Next smother in cheese 2 cups of cheese 1 cup of mozzarella and 1 cup Colby Jack (I really like cheese)
  • Then sprinkle the red onions on top.
  • Place in the oven and cook for 12 to 15 minutes depending on how you like your crust. Make sure you keep an eye on it because everyone’s ovens are a little different.

Notes

Placing the pizza stone in the oven while prepping the pizza will help make sure to get the bottom of the crust crunchy. Make sure you don’t do what I did the first couple times of using the pizza stone and that was build the pizza on the stone and then put it in the oven. I couldn’t ever figure out why it was taking so long for my pizzas to cook.
Then cook to your preference, I like mine a little crunchier, so 15 minutes, remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes then use your pizza slicer and slice away.
