Pizza Ingredients

  • 8 ounces pizza dough
  • 1 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup chicken, diced
  • 1/4 cup bbq sauce, separated
  • 1/8 cup red onion, sliced thin & quartered
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1 tbsp cilantro, chopped

Kitchen Necessities

  • parchment paper
  • pizza stone (if you have)
  • large baking sheet

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees. If you have a pizza stone, add it to the oven and allow to warm with oven (around 30 minutes). 

  2. Add bacon slices into non-stick pan and cook on each side for 2-3 minutes until crispy. Once cool, break into small pieces and set aside.

  3. While bacon is cooking, allow pizza dough to come to room temperature and rise. *see notes for more information*

  4. Place parchment paper onto over turned baking sheet (this will make it easy to slide pizza on and off when going to and from oven). Stretch out your pizza dough on the paper. You can either form a circle or a rectangle, this is completely up to you.

  5. When dough is stretched enough, spread bbq sauce onto dough. Leave about half an inch of dough exposed on the edges for your crust. 

  6. Next add cheese, chicken, bacon, & red onions. Be generous, the more toppings the better!

  7. Add pizza to oven. If using pizza stone, transfer the pizza from the upside down baking sheet onto the stone, if not leave on baking sheet. Cook for 8-10 minutes until cheese completely melted and edges browned.

  8. Once pizza is cooked, allow to cool for 2-4 minutes. Next add chopped cilantro & slice pizza. 

  9. For a fun look, plus the extra kick of bbq sauce, drizzle remaining bbq sauce onto pizza. Serve & Enjoy!
