This is my version of BBQ chicken pizza that I came up with after watching an episode of Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade. I made some adjustments to accommodate a Weight Watcher's eating plan and I think it came out pretty well.

We love making pizza at home and this BBQ chicken pizza is delish. The rustic element of the whole wheat crust is complemented by the BBQ sauce and shredded chicken. Crumbled bacon adds some crunch and a wonderful smokiness to the pizza. Thin slices of onion on top create one delicious bite. For a little extra flavor and flair, drizzle a little extra BBQ sauce on top when it comes out of the oven. You're not going to be able to have just one slice. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

    center cut bacon, cooked in microwave until almost done, chopped

How to Make My Own BBQ Chicken Pizza

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Chop or pull apart chicken.
  2. Add enough bbq sauce to just coat the chicken - 2-3 tablespoons.
  3. Place crusts on baking sheets or pizza pans.
  4. Spread bbq sauce over each crust to within 1-inch of the edge - use maybe 1/4 cup per crust (more or less to your preference).
  5. Place 1/2 the chicken on each crust, spreading out to evenly cover the sauce.
  6. Cover the chicken with mozzarella and cheddar, dividing evenly between the 2 pies.
  7. Divide the bacon and sliced onion evenly between the 2 pies.
  8. Bake for about 10 minutes until the cheese melts and the bacon starts to brown. Check the bottom of the crust to make sure it's not burning.
  9. If it looks like the crust will burn before the bacon crisps enough, turn on the broiler to finish browning the top.
  10. Cut into wedges and serve.
