BBQ Chicken Pizza

Over summer, I always grill about 3-4 lbs of chicken breasts, cut them in the strips and store them in freezer safe bags. They are ready for wraps or fajitas. One less thing for me to worry about. Come home, pull out the bag, in the morning, assemble wraps and lunch is ready to go.

This time around, I used the same grilled chicken strips for pizza. I wanted to make bbq pizza for a long time now and didn’t get to it. Finally over the weekend, I just threw in some peppers and onions and saute them with chicken. Quickly made pizza dough and we had a satisfying supper with lots of greens on the side ready for us.

Here’s how I made it.

Bbq chicken pizza
½ lb grilled chicken breast strips(salt and pepper the chicken breast and grill it till it cooks. Cut into strips)
1 medium onion, julienned
1 each medium red and green pepper, sliced
1 cup marinara sauce
½ cup bbq sauce
About 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Basic Pizza Dough
1 pkg. dry yeast
3/4 c. warm water
1/4 tsp. salt
1 T. oil
1 tsp. sugar
3 c. flour

Mix ingredients together, adding flour last. Cover and let rise 1 hr.

How to:
Pre heat oven to 450° F.
Roll the pizza dough into 12 “ circle.
Place it on a greased pizza pan.
Spread marinara sauce(or your favourite pizza sauce) on top of the rolled dough.
Scattered chicken, peppers and onions on top.
At this point, I like to sprinkle some garlic powder on top of the chicken and veggies as well.
Now sprinkle liberally with cheese.
Finally, drizzle with bbq sauce and stick the pan in the oven.
Bake till about 20 minutes, or the bottom is nicely golden brown and cheese is melted.
Pull it out of the oven.
Cut into slices and serve.
