bbq chicken pizza

one of my favorite ways to make pizza...home made!


1 refrigerated pizza crust (I use pillsbury)
olive oil
2 cloves fresh pressed or minced garlic
1/2 of a sweet white onion sliced (or scallions)
2 chicken breasts cubed
3 to 4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
2 cups freshly (or bagged) shredded white mild cheese such as provolone or white cheddar
sweet baby ray's barbeque sauce or your personal favorite
salt to taste


1. pre-heat oven as directed on pizza crust package. In a medium saute' pan add olive oil. once heated add garlic and desired amount of onion slices saute' till onion becomes more translucent then add chicken and saute' till no longer pink in the middle. add salt to taste. at this time once oven is pre-heated you can roll out your crust to desired shape and pre bake the crust. this prevents it from getting mushy. Just cook till slightly crispy to the touch but not browned.

2. add bbq sauce to the chicken, garlic and onion once chicken has been cooked throughout. for this i just eyeballed it. but more can always be added as you spread this mixture on the crust.

3. add the bbq mixture to crust and spread evenly. adding more bbq sauce if desired. add a pinch or two of the bacon crumbles by spreading evenly over pizza then cheese. then finely the remaining bacon crumbles.

4. cook as directed on package or until cheese is melted and crust is lightly browned. at this time if scallions were chosen i would add them at the end once pizza has been cooked.
