I first made this pizza to use up some leftover chicken. It turned out to be so yummy now I cook the chicken just so I can make the pizza! This is great for a busy weeknight because you can get all of the ingredients ready ahead of time. Definitely use the smoked cheese if you can find it- it really gives it a whole other level of flavor.

How To Make cheesy bbq chicken pizza

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a bowl, combine the shredded chicken with the barbecue sauce.
  • 2
    Spread the pizza crust dough out on a greased 12 inch pizza pan, or a greased 13x9 baking sheet.
  • 3
    Spread the barbecue chicken on the crust, and top with the caramelized onions. Sprinkle with grated cheese. Bake at 425 for 14-16 minutes. * I made the caramelized onions in the crockpot. So easy and you can make a lot and freeze some. I'll include a link to this recipe in the comment section below.
