BBQ Chicken Pizza

BBQ Chicken Pizza

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 50 minutes



Pizza Dough

  • 1 package active dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp.)
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 2 Tbs. oil
  • 2 1/2 c. flour

BBQ Chicken Pizza toppings:

  • 1 cup grilled chicken breast, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (or more) BBQ sauce – I use Sweet Baby Ray’s
  • 1/2 of a red onion chopped
  • 4 cups freshly shredded mozzarella cheese (part skim)
  • Parsley or Cilantro for garnish


  1. Place pizza dough ingredients into the mixer with the dough hook attachment. Mix until ingredients are combined.
  2. Continue to knead until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl and forms a ball around the hook. Add more flour if needed.
  3. Press and stretch dough to fit a greased or silpat lined 13 X 18 inch baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal (optional).
  4. Allow the dough to rise for 30 minutes before topping with BBQ sauce, chicken, cheese, and red onion.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-23 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and golden around the edges.
  6. Garnish with parsley or fresh cilantro.
  7. I like to let the pizza cool for about 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
