BBQ Chicken Pizza


This recipe is for 2 pizzas. You can make it both the same or do another of your favorite. I usually make 2 different ones. To find more recipes, visit brooklyncraftpizza.

Ingredients for Pizza crust:
Dough recipe adapted from The Pioneer Woman.
2  14-inch pizzas

1 teaspoon Instant or Active Dry Yeast
1 1/2 cup warm water ( not lukewarm)
4 cups All-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cups olive oil

Add yeast to warm water.Let stand for few minutes.
In a stand mixer, combine flour and salt. With the mixer running on low speed ( with paddle or hook attachment), drizzle in olive oil until combined with flour.
Pour water/yeast mixture and mix until combined.
Coat a separate mixing bowl with olive oil.
Form the dough into a ball, and toss to coat in olive oil.
Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let it rise for 1-2 hours, or store in the fridge until you need it(up to 4 days).

Sauce and Toppings for 2 pizzas:
1/2 cup your favorite BBQ sauce
1/2 cup your favorite ranch dressing or for homemade.
1 cooked chicken breast pulled apart or diced. ( you may use rotisserie chicken if desired)
3/4 cup sliced green onions green parts
1 red onion sliced
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese or more if you like extra cheesy.
16 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese thinly sliced.
1 cup fresh chopped cilantro
olive oil


Heat oven on 415 degrees.

Combine BBQ sauce with ranch dressing.

Apply olive oil to your hands and take half of the pizza dough.
Slightly coat a pizza pan, a pizza stone or regular baking pan with olive oil.
Pull and stretch and spread the dough until crust is nice and thin ( you can use a rolling pin also, but this way its much easier).
Add about 2 tablespoons of BBQ sauce and a little salt and black pepper to the chicken and mix together.
Spread some sauce evenly on the crust.

Top with fresh mozzarella, mozzarella,green onions, red onions, and chicken.
Drizzle a little bit of sauce on the pizza.
Bake the pizza for 13-15 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and toppings are bubbly.

Sprinkle cilantro before serving.
