Even with the 5 star rating, I had my doubts about this recipe because it was so simple. I was wrong! It was delicious. I left out all the veggies because we don't care for them. It was still incredible. I used a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket and shredded it. Better than any frozen BBQ chicken pizza you can buy and as good or better than those I've had in restaurants.
My hubby and I LOVE this recipe-- have made it several times already. I use Kraft honey BBQ sauce, yellow onion, and cheddar and mozarella cheeses and still comes out fantastic! I also saute the onion and pepper quickly before putting on the pizza. Yum!
I really wasn't too sure that I'd like the taste of this, but I was curious so I made it. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised. Even our 1-year-old ate a decent amount of it. I actually made two mini pizzas and didn't really follow the quantities specified in the recipe. I just used the amount of sauce, peppers, onion, chicken and cheese that seemed appropriate. The only differences I made were the facts that I didn't have a red onion or monteray jack cheese, so I substituted white onion and used mozzarella and cheddar shredded cheese. Quite easy! Thanks!
The success of this recipe seems to be highly dependent on the BBQ sauce you use - the stuff I used didn't taste that great, but I'll try it again with a different, milder sauce.
I'm a big fan of BBQ chicken pizza & when I saw this recipe I had to try it! I stuck to the recipe as close as I could with some additions. I didn't have any grilled chicken, so I used canned. I also subbed roasted red peppers. I added sliced fresh mushrooms, jalapenos & a sprinkle of garlic powder before putting the cheese on. I was very pleased with the results. Next time, I will add black olives. I will make this again & again,& I look forward to experimenting some more with the recipe.
This was a hit. I may use a little less BBQ sauce next time.
Simple, quick and tasty! What more could you ask for?
I will definitely make this one again. It is such a nice change from the traditional, heavy-on-the-fatty-meat pizzas.
Very good - just didn't have everything...sooooo like everyone else who has a brain...I improvised...1.) no pizza crust, used half loaf of Italian bread I had left over from my sgetti dinner last nite, 2.) used onion, green pepper (all I had) 3.) sharp cheddar cheese, put onions, peppers in skillet first, then mixed with the chicken that I had mixed the BBQ sauce with, and heated that before I mixed them all. I also spread a lite layer of BBQ sauce on the bread before adding the chick/onion/pepper mix, then topped it off with sharp cheddar. Put that baby in the oven (preheated to 400) for 10 minutes, and OMG (my mouth is watering now) It was better than I expected. Just my version, and thanks for the recipe....God I love this site! Thanks again, you people make my people think I am some kinda chef!!!
My husband loves this, and he always asks me to make it!
I make this actually on the BBQ. I mix Thai sauce with some tomato sauce instead of BBQ sauce which gives it a kind of sweetish tang. The pizza cooks very fast on th BBQ. We really love it.
Yummy! Next time I will add some pineapple. Made with Jays pizza crust from this site.
What a great change! I poached 1 lb. of boneless chicken, then shredded and tossed with BBQ sauce. I used my homemade pizza crust, then spread a then layer of same BBQ sauce. Sprinkled the chicken, finely diced red onion and finely diced red pepper. I finished with shredded cheddar. Would also be great cooked in a square pan and cut small for appetizers. Will definitely be made again!
Oh my goodness, this is wonderful! I used the Quick and Easy Pizza Crust from this site. I used leftover bbq chicken sandwich meat, and a cherry bbq sauce spread thinly over the crust. I only had shredded colby jack, and it was delicious! I will make this again for sure!
Loved this! I added mushrooms and sauteed the vegtables as suggested. Big hit with my hubby, definitely will make this often.
Absolutely a keeper!! When we order pizza out, we always get one sausage pizza and one sumpreme pizza! This was a great change and will make again! I used head and country bbq sauce with pilsbury crust. Followed recipe exactly.
This was an excellent recipe. I tried it two weeks ago and thought it was good but a little to much bbq. And I made it again last night except instead of putting the bbq sauce down then the chicken. I shredded the chicken and mixed the bbq sauce in with it till I got a consistency I thought would be good...thank you very much for the recipe!!!
I loved it, wife loved it. Used sweet baby *ays chipotle bbq sauce, diced the peppers, used a lil salsa Verde mixed into the bbq sauce, skipped the yellow or red onions in favor of dived green onion shoots. Colby jack/mozzarella, and topped with fresh green onion and cilantro. Fricken fabulous
This was a great Pizza! I bought a dough from a local pizza parlor instead of making my own due to time restraints and it was delicious! Loved the blend of the BBQ sauce, red onion, and MJ cheese! I am definitely adding this to my collection.
Love this pizza! This has become a family favorite of ours. The blend of flavors is excellent, and we've had fun experimenting with different bbq sauces. Thanks for sharing!
SO easy and so delicious. My husband loved it and asks me to make it often.
Very good. I had the good fortune to come across this recipe when I had some leftover grilled chicken and a pizza shell in the refrigerator. I did not use quite as much sauce as the recipe calls for, and I used a mix of cheeses - that's what was on hand. The red pepper adds a lot. I used hickory flavored bbq sauce - we prefer the smokey taste of this to the regular bottled red stuff. Thanks for the recipe.
had some leftover chicken..chopped it up next day and easy meal!
Very good! I did not use the red or green peppers due to personal preference, and I used the pre-cooked grilled chicken strips from Tyson because I had them on hand. The family raved!
Excellent! I used rotisserie chicken. I highly recommend carmalizing your onion and roasting your red pepper (I left out the green). If you have never roasted a pepper, don't be intimidated! It's actually EASIER than chopping raw pepper! You can roast in oven/broiler. It's a snap
Delicious and easy. I used left over chicken and Pillsbury pizza crust. I sauteed the peppers and onions with olive oil spray before I put on the pizza. I also used 2 cups of cheese and about 1 1/2 cups of BBQ sauce. Wonderful!!!!
This is me and my husbands favorite thing. I use the "just add water" pizza mix for the crust. The first time I made it, I used some left over chicken, and it tasted a little dry. Now whenever I have left over chicken, I add a half cup of BBQ sauce, so it can marinate over night, and it turns out absolutely perfect.
This is an amazing pizza. I have made it as directed and I have also added and taken away ingredients. My favorite way is to not add the peppers but add mushrooms and crisped bacon pieces, also add fresh basil on top after baking. So very tasty! Thanks for sharing.
My wife made this recipe for dinner tonight, It was delicious!! The two things she did differantly were use cheddar cheese, and add cilantro. This turned out perfect and I was quick to add it to my recipe index.
This was great! I used homemade crust and homemade BBQ sauce with mozzarella instead of monterey jack (don't have that in Germany). Also, I sauteed the onions and peppers for a few minutes in the same pan I cooked the chicken in. It was great! Will definitely make again.
I used a little more sauce than the recipe called for and I think it would've been better had I stuck with the original amount. (On mine, the BBQ sauce was a little overpowering.) I also cooked the green pepper and onions before adding it to the pizza b/c I don't really like a strong onion taste or the crunch that comes along with it. I shredded a piece of chicken breast that I'd let cook in the crock pot until it was falling apart and then placed it back in the crock pot with BBQ sauce to simmer for about 30 minutes. Put the BBQ sauce & chicken on homemade dough (cheaper than pre-made) and then put the onions and pepper on, followed by the cheese. Pretty good, but even better the 2nd day!
This is super easy and my family really likes it. I definitely recommend it for a busy night.
This was great. My 4 teenage boys loved it. I followed the recipe exactly, but look forward to trying variations in the future. It's a keeper! :-)
Awesome!! So easy and so good. Made 2 and they both quickly disappeared. Will certainly make again, used the recipe exactly as written. Used Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet and Spicy BBQ sauce for a nice, hot tang.
Quick, easy, and a favorite with kids. All of the neighborhood moms have asked for this recipe. I prefer to cook raw boneless chicken in the barbeque sauce with onions and peppers for a richer flavor. I chop the chicken, return it to the sauce with the onions and peppers and spread the mixture on a Boboli or homemade crust and top with mozzerella.
This was awesome! I used a boboli crust and added some cilantro, and just pre cooked the chicken with some olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic. Not sure if I followed the measurements exactly, I just put on the amounts that looked to me, and we all loved it!
My hubby gives it 5 stars (I'm vegetarian, so didnt try it). Easy! I made a homemade pizza crust, dumped on some bbq sauce, the cheese, chicken and veggies. My hubby does not like chicken and I'm desparately trying to find chicken recipes he'll like to rotate in with all the beef he eats! This was a winner with him and me as its is soooooo easy!
I made the pie crust a day in advance and kept covered in the refrigerator. Depending upon how strong the taste and consistency of the BBQ sauce used, reccomend adjusting the quantity that you spread on your crust. I put the sauce on light and it came out great. I made a little extra chicken and sauteed the bell peppers and red onion slightly. I kept the quantity of cheese down and used whole wheat flour to keep the meal healthy and light. Great recipe and very easy.
I used Pillsbury Pizza Dough, and took another reviewer's advices on using cream cheese before spreading the BBQ sauce and other ingredients. I had a little bit of Kraft Zesty Honey BBQ Sauce left, so I used that up and then used Kraft Honey BBQ sauce. I didn't have red onions, but think they would have been outstanding. I used yellow onions instead. I also put Turkey Bacon on top of the cheese before putting it in the oven, and seasoned our chicken with garlic salt before grilling on the george foreman to cook.
We liked this recipe but with a number of modifications. Here is what I did: I used a Boboli pizza crust and spread a small amount of Kraft Honey BBQ sauce (The BEST tip I can give you is to use your BBQ sauce extremely sparingly -- a couple of tablespoons spread thinly will go a LONG way -- you don't want to overdo it, or it will dominate the flavor of your pizza). Next, I spread a load of freshly grated Mont Jack cheese. I then chopped up a handful of white meat from a rotisserie chicken and sprinkled it on top. Next, I chopped up about a 1/3 c. of red onion and sauteed it in butter, then added it to the pizza. Finally, I topped it off with a light sprinkling of cheddar and mozzarella that I had on hand. Baked it for about 10-12 minutes. Delicious!
This is a quick meal go to for us, I pick up the ingredients from our store's salad bar and can have it ready in 12 minutes! I've taken it to dinner club with rave reviews and only a little shame that I have to invest any time into it. :)
I used this recipe as a base. I used Pillsbury refrigerated dough, precooked it but not browned. I used my favorite local (Germantown Commissary) BBQ sauce, used the same company's bbq rub on the chicken breast that I baked in the oven. Quick saute'd the green pepper and red onion in small amount of EVOO just till they started to get tender. On crust...little bit of heated sauce, then cheese (mozzarella and cheddar), chicken, veggies, then drizzled with the remaining 1/3 cup of heated bbq sauce. Returned to oven until cheese melted and crust nice and browned. De-lish!
I caramelized the onions and peppers w/ T. butter, a little brown sugar and pinch of salt for 15 min. until soft. I took onions and peppers out to cool and added the chicken to the same pan and cooked for 15 minutes. I added the peppers and onions w/ the chicken the last 5 minutes. This was so yummy!
My husband was a little iffy on having a chicken pizza but this was so delicious that he loved it and has asked for it multiple times!!
Pizza is one of my family favorites...However, this is one that will be at the top...I made it just like the recipe said except I didn't use quite as much green pepper and I left out the red pepper. It turned out great..Just as good if not better than any pizza you get at the pizza shop!
It was pretty good, I did add blue cheese to one of the pizzas I made, just to experiment a little and it tasted really good I didn't really have any peppers but I was adding spinach and arugula to a couple of the pizzas and they turned out very tasty.
Made this last night.... we have never had BBQ pizza before so i was a lil nervous to see if my family would enjoy it. Lets just say there was none left! I will def add this to my favorites. Thanks!
My husband and kids LOVE this! Add some pineapple and some cilantro!
Great pizza! Besides doubling everything I followed the recipe exactly. I topped it on Pizza Dough III recipe from this site.
We thought this was really yummy! Next time we are going to add cilantro and green onions, though!
My two 10 year old nephews loved this pizza!! I got the personal pan pizza crusts from the Dollar Tree, (2 in a pack) and they were actually really good! I think the key is to use as simple a BBQ sauce as possible, I got the $.99 honey BBQ sauce from Aldi. I fed two growing boys very inexpensively lol. Thanks for the idea!
I love this its one of my favourites I sometimes leave out the crust and just make it on the flat round turkish style bread under the broiler and roll it up yum! I like to add pineapple too, for me it complements it well
Great recipe--just be careful not to overdue the BBQ sauce or it will overpower the dish.
OH MY. I love this!!! SOOO delicious! I used whole wheat pizza crust, added chopped fresh spinach, fresh cilantro and used a mixture of parmesean/romano/mozzerella cheeses.....soo tasty! I am eating it right now and can't get enough. Thanks for a keeper!
I love bbq chicken pizza and this is a great one! I used 2 chicken breasts and added some diced tomato. I found 1/2 cup of bbq sauce to be perfect. Yum!
This was "ok". Maybe it was the dough. The overal pizza didn't have the overall texture or consistency i was hoping for. Actually pretty messy...I may try again as my son did like it.
yum, we really enjoyed this recipe! i made a large whole wheat pizza crust & spread about 3/4 cup barbeque sauce (sweet baby ray's original) over top. some reviewers mentioned adding bacon as a topping so i did the same. i also doubled the amount of grilled chicken & monterey jack cheese. this pizza is delicious either hot from the oven or the next day. thank you, iv!
For a recipe-newbie this was a easy recipe. Per other reviewers suggestion I used "Baby Rays" BBQ sauce, Tyson grilled chicken strips, mozzarella & cheddar cheese. I sauteed all the veggies (plus mushrooms)in olive oil, a tiny bit of butter and salt. I used Pillsbury pizza crust and baked for 20 minutes. This was a very hearty pizza. A good alternative to other pizzas.
I love BBQ chicken pizza! This recipe makes it so easy to substitute what you have. I used yellow bell peppers (instead of red and green), yellow onion (instead of red), and a combination of cheddar and pepper jack cheeses (instead of Monterey Jack).
BBQ chicken pizza is great. I would add that it's even better if you saute your onion & peppers ahead of time to get that carmelized taste. I make a version of this recipe with store bought whole BBQ chicken and also I put my chicken in BBQ sauce (Sweet Baby Rays is great ) and warm as this permeats chicken with sauce, even better.
I used a pizza stone, was very good. Next time I plan to get more creative with cheeses to add a bit more flavor. I also suggest using the bbq sauce to taste, can easily get overpowering if too much is used.
Awesome tasting and super easy to make! I used a boxed pizza dough mix that I had in the pantry and lots of peppers and cheese. I will make this again!
Pretty tasty and so easy to make! I used a Boboli pre-baked crust (thin), a rotisserie chicken, and a honey barbeque sauce because I like it on the sweet side. If you don't, go with a regular or mesquite. I sauteed the veggies for about 2 minutes to soften them up a bit. I also added some chopped green onions and fresh basil. The result was a very pretty pizza that tasted great! Thanks for the super easy recipe.
Pretty good,but could have used a little more sauce and cheese. Next time I'll add more, because I will be making this tasty pizza again!
Delicious! I used Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce and topped with chunks of chicken (I prefer this over diced), veggies sauteed in olive oil & a monterey jack cheese blend. A keeper!
Made this tonight! YUMMY YUM YUM what a great way to change up pizza. I will make this again in a heartbeat.
My son picked this recipe out for dinner one night and I'm so glad he did. This was the best! I like it because I can make it for a quick week night dinner.
We found this recipe to be one of our favorites. The only thing I did different was sauting the veggie in olive oil first.
Like those before me, I wasn't sure this would taste good! We made two, one with vegies and one w/o. It was a big hit, even with our 3 teenagers! We also used the precooked chicken, which saved on time and still tasted delish!
Yum! I made my own dough and baked it for about 5 minutes before adding the toppings to it. I prepared my chicken by simmering it in a water-barbeque mixture and then shredding it while it was cooking, which made it really tender and flavorful. The pizza turned out great, and I thought the onions and peppers made a great combination with the chicken!
Like many others, I couldn't believe that such a simple recipe would turn out so great. Just by starting with a simple layer of barbeque sauce, then a mix of fried green and red pepper with onion, bits of grilled chicken and a final layer of cheese, I got one of the best homemade pizzas ever. For sure I will make it again!
My family loved it!!! I used pizza dough not a pre-made form and it was amazing!! I also added a little mozzarella to get that stringy cheese effect.
Girlfriend gave it a 6+* out of 5*. Only change was to use a rotisserie chicken chopped up from the grocery store, added sliced fresh shrooms. & broiled the pizza a few min to 'brown' the cheese. What an incredible pizza!!!!! 2nd time - only change was to use individua smalll pitas to make personal pizzas.
Not my cup of tea
I made this months ago and have been wanting to make it again. We LOVED it! Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great!
This was so incredibly easy and tasty! I sauted the chicken and onions briefly in oil and then cooked it in the bbq sauce. I spread a thin layer of bbq sauce over the crust and then the chicken combo. Oh, I left out the peppers. Really easy and tasty!
Great taste! loved it
I appreciate the simplicity of this recipe. I've used other bbq chicken recipes in the past, but they were much more time consuming and complex. This was easy, quick, and tasty.
Better than CPK! I shredded a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and mixed the chicken with the BBQ sauce before spreading it over the pizza crust. I recommend cooking your pizza dough for a few minutes before adding the toppings so that the crust doesn't get too soggy. Then return to the oven and bake until cheese is melted and pizza is bubbly.
Wow Wow Wow! This recipe is amazing! I used sweet baby rays sauce and instead of pre-baked crust I used Jiffy pizza crust mix. It's way cheaper and was only 50 cents a box and I used two boxes. I used a cookie sheet and made a large rectangular pizza. I used 1 cp. sauce 8 oz. cheese and eyeballed the veggies and chicken. It was so good! I think I ate 5 slices but I can't remember lol. As soon as my husband bit into it he said it was really good. He was surprised b/c he never had bbq chkn and he didn't know what to expect. I've ordered this at restaurants and this rivaled what I had and even tasted a little better! Oh, and might I add that this is my 1st time making pizza at home :-)
Yummy! New recipe added to the dinner rotation. I used a Boboli whole wheat thin crust. I sauteed the veggies (added mushrooms) before topping the pizza. Cooked the chicken in BBQ sauce. Decided to use pepper jack cheese.
This is great, only mu 2 year old doesn't like it.
One of my favorite foods, but with such a simple recipe it did lack a lot of flavor.
What a nice change from traditional pizza. We really enjoyed this combination of flavors. Will make again! Thanks!
I left off the green pepper and added sliced mushrooms. I used half jack and half parm cheese. I baked it at 425 for 15 min to help get the veggies a little more done. Yum!
Fairly good. Pretty straight forward. I don't think I used quite a cup of cheese and paid for it. My pizza fell apart too easily and I think more cheese would have been the glue it needed.
This was really good. It was easy and quick to make and was visually pleasing. I didn't have enough monterey jack cheese so I added a monterey jack/cheddar cheese blend and it came out fine.
Outstanding!! I used the recipe for the Quick and Easy Pizza Crust from this site and it came out sooo good!! I used a rotisserie chicken from my local grocery store as others suggested, and cut it up in bite size pieces. My boyfriend loved it =)
We have a winner!! My husband really enjoyed this! I did add some crumbled up bacon! very tasty!Made this for his lunch today and got rave reviews from him and his co workers...lol this will definitely be added to his weekly lunch rotation!!
The kiddos (and hubby) loved it! Thanks!!
This is a hit in our house. The only thing we did different was put pineapple chunks also.
This was awesome. So simple and so delicious, Thanks for the great recipe!
When I told my boyfriend about this he wasn't so sure but after I made it he said this is a once a week meal!
This matched or exceeded my hopes. I have a favorite local restuarant that serves my favorite BBQ chicken pizza of all time. Other restaurants always disappoint. This recipe means I can have my all-time favorite meal right at home - it tastes just the same and was very very easy and quick. And, my family, who doesn't even order this at the restaurant loved it too.
Great base recipe. Used fresh spinach instead of peppers. Used a homemade whole wheat crust and doubled chicken. Delicious!
This pizza surpassed my expectations! Delicious. I bought a Boboli premade crust which was okay, I used Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce, a can of diced tomatoes, onions and cilantro and chicken. It was quick and it tasted just like BJ's bbq chicken pizza. Who needs BJ's when you've got this easy recipe!?
I loved this and it was super easy to make!
