Barbecue Chicken Pizza

Friday pizza night is always a favorite in our house, it doesn't happen every week but often enough. We used to order out pizza a lot more before we had the kids. Now, I can make a batch of dough and stretch it into three pizzas. Plenty for our family, plus usually leftovers for lunch the next day.

This also means variety. Each family member can have their favorite toppings. Buffalo chicken for the hubby and all meat for the girls. That leaves one for mom to possibly experiment with. This time is was barbecue chicken.

And it was a delicious experiment! We had some leftover cooked chicken in the fridge so that made for an easy start. Mixed with barbecue sauce and topped with onion, peppers, cheese and cilantro. Very fresh tasting and so good. Now anytime we have extra barbecue chicken on hand I'm going to think of this pizza.

Barbecue Chicken Pizza

1 prepared pizza crust
1 cup cooked, shredded chicken
1 cup barbecue sauce, divided
1/4 cup sliced onion
1/4 cup diced bell pepper
mozzarella cheese
chopped cilantro

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll pizza dough out onto a pizza pan.

Top dough with 1/4 cup of barbecue and spread evenly. Mix chicken with remaining sauce and spread over crust. Sprinkle onion, pepper and cheese over top. Bake in oven for 17-20 minutes.

Remove from oven and top with cilantro. Cut into slices and serve.
