BBQ Chicken Pizza

Last night was pizza night at my house.

Of course, we had my asparagus, mushrooms & red onion pizza, but my brother requested that we also have a BBQ chicken pizza, so I came up with this little guy.

Green onions, red onion, barbecue chicken, and two kinds of cheese. Yum.

You can make your own pizza dough or buy it (I recommend Trader Joe’s). I would just make sure you go for a basic, plain pizza dough so the barbecue flavours can shine through.

Speaking of barbecue, I think Stubb’s BBQ sauce works perfectly with this pizza — it’s got a little kick to it, but isn’t overwhelming and is the perfect complement to the other pizza toppings. {Just be careful when you’re shaking it to make sure the lid is on tightly. Otherwise it’ll end up all over your kitchen :)}

This pizza is really fast and easy to make. I like to stir-fry the chicken before I throw it on the pizza, but other than that all it takes is rolling out the dough, adding the toppings and throwing it in the oven. Piece of cake (pizza)!
