Barbecue Chicken Pizza

I've never really been into pizzas that you make yourself. I remember getting frozen pizzas when I was a kid, and sometimes we'd also buy the pizzas that are refrigerated and just need to be baked. They're usually found in or around the store's deli. But I always loved restaurant pizzas much better.

Now we usually order take out when we want pizza, or we go to the Cici's Buffet, and sometimes we get "take and bake" pizzas from Papa Murphy's. (Their 5 meat stuffed is awesome!)

But occasionally I will make a pizza at home. Red Baron's are really good, and sometimes I'll throw my own combination together. For an example, today I'm sharing the barbecue chicken pizza that I made recently.

Recipe for Barbecue Chicken Pizza:

1 Pizza crust (homemade or refrigerated)
1 bottle barbecue sauce
1 bag cheddar cheese (or other cheese combination)
1 lb chicken (2-4 chicken breasts)
bacon (as many pieces as you desire) or bacon bits
1 onion, diced (optional)

Directions: First cook your chicken. I just boiled mine on the stove, but you can however you prefer. I like to boil it, because this makes it nice and tender; the crock pot would also work well. You can also bake or grill it, but I'd recommend brushing the chicken with some sauce beforehand, to ensure that it's not to dry. After your chicken is cooked, chop or shred it.

Next preheat the oven. The directions on the crust I used called for 400 degrees. Next prepare crust. If using a refrigerated crust, unroll the crust onto a pizza pan or cookie sheet. (I actually used an 11X7 casserole dish for mine). For a large pizza, you could use 2 crusts and put them together. Next pour the barbecue sauce on the crust; use as much as you desire, and spread it with a spoon, spatula, or brush. Next sprinkle your onion, if using. Then sprinkle on your chicken, bacon, and top with plenty of cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes, use whatever baking instructions you have for the crust recipe you are using.
