I’ve posted a recipe for barbecue chicken on my blog before, but it is so good that it really needed an update. Check it out (click here) and see for yourself what I mean…I’ve come a LONG way!!
I’ve recently became a huge fan of red onions. And they really make this pizza (if you’re not a fan, feel free to leave out). And the fresh cilantro takes the flavors to a whole other level! So good!!
I roll my pizzas out super thin, almost like a flat bread. I want to taste all the flavors, not just eat a lot of dough. Make sure you click the link in the ingredients for the pizza dough – so easy and great to have in your fridge and freezer at all times!
1/2 cup barbecue sauce (we use Sweet Baby Ray's), divided
2 tablespoons ranch dressing
2-3 tablespoons diced red onion
1 1/2 cup shredded cheese (we use a Mexican blend)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees with pizza stone inside. Roll out pizza dough into a circle (or close to it for a pizza stone). While your pizza stone is getting hot in your oven, start making your chicken. Add the olive oil to a medium skillet and heat on medium. Add chicken and toss with grill seasoning, cook until done throughout. Take off heat and add 1/4 cup of the barbecue sauce to the chicken. Stir until combined and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine the remaining barbecue sauce with the ranch dressing. Remove pizza stone and place rolled out dough on top. Top pizza dough with barbecue/ranch mixture, leaving about an inch border around the edge. Top with chicken, cheese and red onion. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the cheese is melted and the pizza crust is a golden brown. Top with fresh cilantro.
