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

Step-by-Step

  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.
