BBQ Chicken Pizza Recipe & Free Freschetta® By The Slice Pizza Event

BBQ Chicken Pizza Recipe & Free Freschetta® By The Slice Pizza Event

Due to our little guys food situation, I have been trying to find easy recipes for me and my husband that don’t necessarily take that much time or put too much emphasis on cooking.

Pizzas are great for us right now because they are fairly quick, easy to put together, and when dressed up a bit, they make quite a filling meal. This BBQ Chicken Pizza is a tasty-pleaser that can be made pretty effortlessly – even when preparing the homemade sauce and fresh chicken yourself.

Ingredients Needed for Pizza:
Freschetta® Artisan Pizza Crust
2 Boneless Chicken Breasts; cooked and chopped
Homemade BBQ Sauce {recipe below}
Shredded Mozzarella
Fresh Cilantro

Begin by cooking the chicken breasts. I simply poach them on the stove top {though any preferred method can be used}. To poach – bring a pot of water to a boil, add chicken breast, turn down heat and simmer for 12 minutes, remove the pot from the stove and let sit for 15 minutes.

For the sauce, a homemade batch of BBQ can be whipped up ahead of time or you can use your favorite brand as well.

Homemade BBQ Sauce Recipe
1 1/4 Cup of Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup of Chile Sauce
1/4 Cup of Ketchup
1/4 Cup of Soy Sauce
1/4 Cup of Worcestershire Sauce
2 Teaspoons of Garlic
1 Teaspoon of Ground Mustard
Fresh Ground Pepper to Taste

Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan, mix well, and let simmer over low heat for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool, place in a glass container and refrigerate until ready to use. {makes approximately enough for two pizzas}

Slowly fold one half of the BBQ sauce in with the cut chicken, until well coated.

Place the mixture on top a Freschetta® Artisan Pizza Crust.
{they come in original, whole wheat and our personal favorite, thin}

Add fresh chopped onions and shredded mozzarella cheese;
bake in the oven at 425° for 15-20 minutes.

Sprinkle with fresh chopped cilantro.

Perfectly crispy crust every single time ~ so tasty too!

  3. If you want to change up this recipe–we love the same basic BBQ pizza but do it with smoked gouda instead of mozzarella.
