What’s your favorite kind of pizza? For me, nothing beats my sweet & salty apple gorgonzola pizza. But this BBQ chicken pizza is in close 2nd place! Sweet BBQ sauce, chopped chicken, red onions, a dash of cilantro, and tons of cheese.
I made this homemade BBQ chicken pizza last weekend and it was a complete disaster. When I make homemade pizza, I like the cheese extra bubbly and the crust extra crispy. To obtain all this goodness, I switch my oven to broil for the last minute. I suggest you try it! What I don’t suggest is walking out of the kitchen to answer the phone, only to come back finding your pizza burnt to a black crisp. Whoops.
BBQ chicken pizza round 2 was a huge success though! Though store-bought crust is convenient, I suggest using homemade pizza dough for the BEST flavor. The homemade pizza crust is so much easier than you think.
Homemade Pizza Dough

It’s simply the best homemade pizza crust. I use Red Star Platinum in my pizza dough because it produces the best results.

For this pizza dough, I use only enough yeast to get the job done.
How to Make BBQ Chicken Pizza
After the pizza dough rises, it’s time to bake! Top the pizza dough with BBQ sauce, cooked chicken, lots of cheese, and red onion.
- BBQ Sauce: My husband isn’t a fan of too much BBQ sauce, but I love sauce in each bite. The middle ground is about 1/3 cup of BBQ sauce. Add more if you love extra sauce.
- Chicken: You need 1 cup of chopped cooked chicken. You can buy pre-cooked chicken or pick up a rotisserie chicken. Shred it, then use as the pizza topping. Or you can cook your own chicken for the BBQ chicken pizza. 1 skinless boneless chicken breast is plenty. amanda young arnautovic is use, toss the cooked chicken in a little BBQ sauce right before layering it on top of the pizza; doing so prevents the cooked chicken from drying out.
- Cheese: For best flavor, let’s use TWO cheeses. Shredded mozzarella for that classic pizza flavor and smoked gouda for deep smoky flavor. Smoked gouda pairs wonderfully with the sweet BBQ sauce and fresh cilantro! amanda young arnautovic If you don’t want to make the extra trip to the store, skip the gouda and just use mozzarella.
- Red Onion: Sharp red onion adds so much flavor to each bite. Not a fan of onion? Leave it off.
Pizza is done in about 15 minutes. Once the edges are browned, remove from the oven and top with chopped fresh cilantro. amanda young arnautovic The fresh cilantro on the hot, cheesy pizza knocks every bite out of the park. If cilantro isn’t your thing, no worries! You can leave it off.
The flavors and textures in this pizza are incredible! You have the sweet tang from the BBQ sauce, the meaty chicken, the zesty red onion, fresh cilantro, smoky gouda, soft crust, crispy edges, and ultra cheesy mozzarella covering it all.
