Barbecue Chicken Pizza

Today I’m sharing my second recipe that I made using 1 rotissere chicken, barbecue chicken pizza.

We love pizza in this house, who doesn’t? A great tradition is to have a Friday night pizza date with your family. Pizza is quick and easy to put together and the kids love helping put it together.

This pizza is a copy-cat recipe of California Pizza Kitchen’s BBQ chicken. I got this from a friend a couple of years ago, and it tastes so much like their pizza that I feel like I’m eating at a restaurant instead of at home.

A few tips about this recipe –

1. I didn’t make my own pizza crust, I use Boboli pizza crust from the grocery store. Feel free to use any type of pizza dough you like.

2.  This recipe calls for 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast. I used about a 1 to 2 cups of shredded chicken from my rotiserre chicken. You can also use baked or boiled chicken for this recipe.

3. I do recommend KC Masterpiece Original barbecue sauce because I love it not because of any sponsporship. In fact, they don’t even know I’m recommending their sauce. 🙂

I hope you give this pizza a try and let me know what you think.



Barbecue Chicken Pizza
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, shredded
  • ½ cup KC Masterpiece Original barbecue sauce
  • ½ cup grated smoked gouda
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • ½ cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 tsp finely chopped cilantro
  • pizza dough of your choice
  1. Take the shredded chicken and mix with half(1/4 cup) of the barbecue sauce. Let it marinate.
  2. Layer the following ingredients on the pizza dough - the remaining barbecue sauce, the shredded chicken, smoked gouda, sliced red onion, the mozzarella and the cilantro.
  3. Bake according to pizza dough directions.
