BBQ Chicken Pizza

This is not an earth-shattering pizza, but a great variation to the typical tomato/cheese pizza. I use this as a way to use up leftover diced chicken, and as a backup in case I'm out of tomato paste or sauce to use for a regular pizza. I have done a mixture of BBQ sauce and tomato sauce as the base in the past, but I just don't think it makes much of a difference taste-wise, so my lazy self has used straight BBQ sauce for a few years.

Here is my oblong-shaped pizza. I make whole wheat pizza crusts on the grill and stash them in the freezer, but my pizzas seem to take on some weird shapes! They still taste really yummy, so no complaints from the family!

I've also made this with diced turkey, and it's just as great!

I am sharing this recipe today at Tasty Tuesdays , Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays. and Tuesdays At The Table.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

prepared pizza crust
1/4 cup barbecue sauce, plus 2 Tablespoons
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup cooked diced chicken (great for leftovers!)
1/4 cup diced red onion

Combine the diced chicken and 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce in a bowl, set aside.
Spread the pizza crust with barbecue sauce, top with mozzarella cheese, then spread bbq chicken mixture on top of cheese and dot with diced red onion

The slices are especially yummy with avocado chunks on it. yum-o.
