Ingredients

  • 12 ounces pizza crust whole grain
  • 3/4 cup BBQ Sauce divided
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1 lb chicken breast cut into 1" pieces
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 TBSP water
  • 6 ounces cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 small red onion very thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Spread 1/4 cup BBQ Sauce over the pizza crust, leaving a 1/2 inch border for the crust.
  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken pieces and sprinkle with salt. Cook until chicken is done.
  • Remove from heat and add remaining 1/2 cup BBQ sauce and water. Stir until all the chicken is completely coated. Set aside.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese on the pizza crust over the BBQ sauce. Top with red onion slices and BBQ sauce-coated chicken pieces. Make sure to scrape any extra BBQ Sauce from the skillet onto the pizza crust.
  • Top with the remaining 1 cup of cheese. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes until cheese has melted.
  • After taking out of the oven, sprinkle with cilantro and serve. Enjoy!

Notes

*If using this pizza crust recipe and making 4 individual pizzas, spread 2 tablespoons of BBQ sauce on each pizza crust. Prepare the chicken as directed. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese on pizza crust then top equally with red onion slices and cooked chicken. Sprinkle each pizza with 1/4 cup of cheese and bake. After removing from oven, sprinkle each pizza with 2 tablespoons of cilantro.
*Boboli 12" 100% Whole Wheat Pizza Crust is a good store-bought option, if you don't have time/don't want to make your own.
