BBQ Chicken Pizza Recipe


  • 1 pre-made pizza dough (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup cooked chicken, shredded or diced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • Olive oil, for brushing


  1. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to the temperature recommended on the pizza dough package or recipe.
  2. Prepare the pizza dough: Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface to your desired thickness. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased pizza pan or baking sheet.
  3. Brush with olive oil: Brush the surface of the pizza dough with a thin layer of olive oil. This will help create a crispy crust.
  4. Spread the barbecue sauce: Spoon the barbecue sauce evenly over the prepared pizza dough, leaving a small border around the edges.
  5. Add the toppings: Sprinkle the shredded chicken and sliced red onion over the barbecue sauce. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese.
  6. Bake the pizza: Transfer the assembled pizza to the preheated oven and bake according to the instructions for the pizza dough, typically until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Finish and serve: Once baked, remove the pizza from the oven and sprinkle with chopped fresh cilantro, if desired. Slice and serve hot.

Enjoy your homemade BBQ Chicken Pizza, packed with smoky barbecue flavor and cheesy goodness!
