Today’s recipe is for a barbecue chicken pizza. Barbecue chicken pizza is a fairly standard “non-standard” pizza. It’s something different that will liven up your kitchen. As is customary, we’ll start with the sauce recipe…
1 tablespoon butter
2 cloves garlic chopped fine
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons onions, minced
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt Hot sauce to taste — I like to use Rooster sauce.
Throw that in a pot and boil; then let simmer while stirring for 5 to 10 minutes. The great thing about a barbecue pizza sauce recipe is that it doesn’t require the simmer time that other standard tomato recipes do.
We’re going to use our standard pizza dough recipe.
Two thirds done. Now, we need toppings.
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed 2 cups of Gouda cheese 1/2 of a small red onion, cut into rings 1 roma tomato, sliced into chunks 2 tablespoons of cilantro
Saute the chicken breasts in olive oil and coat with barbecue sauce.
From here, it’s all easily done. Spread the remaining barbecue sauce over the crust, shower with Gouda, place onions and tomatoes and bake for 15 minutes at 350. Once the pizza is out of the oven, sprinkle the cilantro over the finished product. Big chunks of chicken and rings of onion over Gouda cheese, all lying on a bed of delicious barbecue sauce. This is one of my favorite recipes. I love cooking with cheese, and making a barbecue pizza is really just an excuse to bring the two elements together. You might try incorporating other flavors–being that we’ve included tomato, cilantro and onion, we’re only a few steps from pico de gallo.
