Best BBQ Chicken Pizza

Wesley is a very picky food critic. It’s not just me; ask his family. His sister laughed about  it at Christmas. Apparently, when he was younger he was the same way…always offering ‘suggestions’ on how to improve the dish. In fact, his mother said that’s why he started cooking, she told him ‘come do it the way you want it.’ I’ve said the same thing….not that nicely at times.

I hate that he’s that way. I’ll just be honest, but it probably has made me a better cook. (I hope he doesn’t read this!) So what I’m about to reveal IS EPIC!!!!!

He said this pizza is really good!!!

People – THAT. IS. HUGE.

I cannot remember a dish that I’ve made that he didn’t offer ANY ‘suggestions’ for improving.

I use this pizza dough recipe. I use this dough for pizzas, calzones, dessert pizzas, bread sticks and cheese sticks. I also add whole wheat flour for a whole wheat pizza crust when I forget to get all-purpose I want it to be a little healthy. The dough is basic, simple to put together and very versatile.

This is a great recipe to use leftover chicken. If you prefer, purchase a rotisserie chicken. You only need 1 cup chopped chicken.

You can also change the toppings depending on your favorites and what you had on hand. HOWEVER, as Big Daddy can attest, these particular flavor combos are extremely flavorful.

      Oh, let me know how it turns out, I wanted to cook this crust on the grill but we were out of gas and WJ didn’t want to do charcoal for such a quick recipe.

      I just couldn’t believe how much he like it, so it’ll now be a regular with us too. And, I love easy recipe especially during the Summer. Thanks for visiting!

    BBQ sauce instead of tomato sauce would pretty radical for my family, but they might love it. Thanks for sharing your Wesley approved pizza with us on foodie friday.

      We have a brand, Sweet Baby Ray’s, it’s sweet and smoky, I love the stuff. I could prob eat it on biscuits….ok, no I couldn’t but it’s really good. 🙂

    I love it. I know those critics in our lives are not easy on the ego but they do push us to greatness. As a non-pizza lover this is one that I am interested to try. Cuz I LOVE BBQ chicken. Sweet Baby Rays is also an excellent sauce. I like the Chipotle one. Thanks for sharing at What’d You Do This Weekend. Best wishes for tasty dishes this week!
