BBQ Chicken Pizza

One of my favorite shortcuts is to use leftover rotisserie chicken for quick meals. Today I am featuring my BBQ Chicken Pizza made from just a bit of leftover chicken.

BBQ Pizza
Whenever I head to the wholesale club I buy several of the precooked rotisserie chickens and put them in the freezer. Sometimes I just take one and shred it down first into easy to grab bags for even faster dinners.

I have tweeked and tweeked my pizza recipe to just how my family. I think my bbq /pizza sauce combo is just right. The other secret trick is the seasoned chicken meat. Just adds to that bbq taste without all the sauce!

BBQ Chicken Pizza

1 12-14 inch premade pizza crust (store bought or homemade)
1/8 cup bbq sauce
1/8 cup pizza sauce
2 cups shredded mozarella cheese
1 1/2 cups diced precooked chicken
1/2 packet of bbq dry rub. (I use McCormicks Tennesee BBQ)
1/2 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
Optional: Onions: either green onions, or diced red onions, or even caramelized onions.

In small bowl mix together bbq sauce and pizza sauce. Set aside.
In another bowl toss together the precooked diced chicken with the  bbq seasoning. Set aside.
Place prepared pizza dough on pizza pan or stone.
Spread pizza/bbq sauce over pizza dough.
Top with shredded cheese.
Sprinkle seasoned chicken and bacon bits over the cheese.
Top with any optional toppings such as onions.
Bake at 425° for 12-15 minutes or until crust is lightly golden and cheese is bubbly.


  1. Now you've inspired me for our traditional Friday night pizza Jan! I think I might drizzle a little amount of ranch dressing on it too... (It's an Iowa thing!)
