BBQ chicken pizza


Prep Time: 10 min.
Total Time: 1 hour, 30 min.


Pizza Dough

1 pkg (8g) active dry yeast
1 cup lukewarm water
1 tsp sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for greasing

Pizza Toppings

½ cup pizza sauce
¼ cup BBQ sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
¼ cup sliced red onion
1 cup shredded, cooked, deli chicken
¼ cup chopped cilantro


1. In a large bowl combine water with yeast and sugar. Let sit until bubbly, about 10 min. Add flour, salt and olive oil. Mix until mixture comes together to form a dough. Knead for 10 min., until dough is smooth and elastic. Use extra flour for dusting if the dough is sticky. Place dough in a clean, greased bowl and cover with a damp tea towel to double in size, about 1 hour.

2. Roll out dough into a large rectangle, until ½-inch thick. Heat BBQ to medium heat. Before grilling pizza, have all of the ingredients prepped and ready to go on a large baking sheet next to the BBQ. Brush top of dough with olive oil. Place on hot grill, olive oil side down. Cook, 2-3 min., until just cooked. Flip dough and quickly add sauce and toppings. Close the lid and let pizza grill for 3-5 min., until cheese has melted and dough is cooked through. If dough smells like it’s scorching or burning on the grill, move it to a cooler spot on the grill to continue cooking. Let cool slightly before slicing and serving.
