This is my personal favorite homemade pizza of all the homemade pizza recipes. I am allll about barbecue chicken pizza! Half of my family likes it and the other half..not so much. The best part is that the half that likes it are the ones paying the bills so, you know, Barbecue Chicken Pizza it is!
This pizza recipe is soooo uber fast and a great way to use up leftover chicken. Although I often cook up a pound of chicken simply for this recipe, it’s worth it. You can absolutely make up your own pizza crust (I do so quite often). Or, if you are in a hurry or not feeling like going through that extra effort simply pick up a pre-made crust or refrigerator dough. Honestly, they all work great and will not take away from the deliciousness of this pizza! I have also had great success with this recipe on Naan bread as personal sized pizzas which kids love!
Crystal Farms® cheese has been made for 25 years right next door to Minnesota in Lake Mills, Wisconsin. Being my husband and kids were born there, and we lived there for over 15 years…we are partial to the brand and the great quality they produce. Of course, their cheese is absolutely delicious, creamy, and melty! Perfect for mama’s favorite pizza!
