BBQ Chicken Pizza

I am a little obsessed with California Pizza Kitchen's BBQ Chicken Pizza, so I decided to make up my own that is very similar to the one I crave. This is by far one of the most requested recipes from my husband. It is so easy to throw together and uses simple ingredients that I always have in my pantry and fridge. I love the taste of the homemade crust and the simple sauce ingredients. This is an extremely versatile pizza that can be added to/changed depending on various preferences and tastes.

Crust Ingredients:
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 3 cups flour

Whisk together egg, oil, salt, and sugar. Slowly pour in boiled water, stirring constantly. Allow to cool slightly. Add in flour, one cup at a time, until smooth (Dough will be very thick and hard to stir after all of the flour is added). Knead dough and roll it out until it fits the size of your pizza pan (a cookie sheet will also work here). Spread light coating of oil over dough in pan.

Pizza Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c. spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 c. bbq sauce
  • 1 large chicken breast, cooked and cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped finely
  • 1 medium tomato, cut into small pieces
  • 1-2 cups cheddar cheese (pepperjack is also amazing)
  • 1 bunch cilantro

Mix spaghetti sauce and bbq sauce together in small bowl. Evenly spread over crust. Sprinkle all ingredients except cilantro over pizza and bake at 425 for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and crust is a light brown.

Take out of the oven and sprinkle cilantro on right before serving.
