5 Reasons BBQ Chicken Pizza is My Go-To Dinner

Monday, March 26th, 2012

1. When E says “What’s for dinner?” and I have no idea, I can throw together a pizza in 30 minutes.

2. Everyone in my family eats it.

3. Cheeeeeeeeese.

4. It’s easy to keep the ingredients on hand so I can make it any time I get a craving.

5. I never have to deal with leftovers.

Super Easy BBQ Chicken Pizza

1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast

1 Pillsbury thin crust refrigerated pizza crust

2 cups shredded mozzarella (2% or fat free is ok, but not as delicious as the real stuff)

1/2 bottle Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce

1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Toss the chicken in a baking dish, top with some of the BBQ sauce. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray. Spread out the pizza crust evenly. Pop the crust in the oven for 5 minutes (you can put it in with the chicken). Once the crust is pre-baked, take it out and spread the rest of BBQ sauce over it. Top with the red onions, then the cheese. When the chicken is cooked, shred it up into bit sized pieces and add it to the pizza. Put the whole thing back in the oven for 8-12 minutes until the cheese is melted and the crust starts to brown. Try to wait a couple minutes before you eat it, or you’ll burn your mouth.

If you or your kids aren’t fans of spicy stuff, substitute your favorite BBQ sauce for the Sweet Baby Ray’s. It’s not exactly HOT but it is tangy. And if you don’t like onions (Mom) just skip ’em.
