BBQ Chicken Pizza

Okay, so it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on here because, as I’ve mentioned before, law school is a TOTAL TIME SUCK!  The sous chefs still don’t have any thumbs, so they refuse to type – so they can’t update you all, either.  That being said, I was feeling guilty over all but abandoning my little corner of the internet, and so decided today was the day I would post one of my favorites of all time that I’ve incidentally already taken pictures of and can post.


BBQ Chicken Pizza
     Inspired by California Pizza Kitchen

1 whole Recipe For Pizza Crust (mine Makes Two Crusts)
2 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Boobs
½ cup Barbecue Sauce
Olive Oil, For Drizzling
Salt For Sprinkling
16 ounces, weight Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, Sliced Thinly
½ whole Red Onion, Cut In Half And Sliced Very Thin
Chopped Cilantro, to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Salt chicken breasts on both sides, then place on a baking pan.
Pour BBQ sauce over the breasts and turn them over to coat.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until chicken is done.
Remove from oven and cut into a fine dice. Set aside.
Increase oven temperature to 500 degrees.
Roll/stretch out one pizza crust.
Lay it on a sheet pan drizzled with olive oil.
Drizzle a little olive oil on the crust, then sprinkle on a little salt.
Spoon some BBQ sauce on the crust and spread it evenly.
Top sauce with half the sliced mozzarella.
Sprinkle on half the diced chicken and thinly sliced red onion.
Sprinkle again with a little salt.
Bake 15 to 17 minutes, until crust is golden brown and toppings bubbly.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle on plenty of chopped cilantro.
Cut into squares and serve immediately.
