Friday

Yummiest Ever Barbeque Chicken Pizza

Weekend dinners are some of my favorites because it's the time that we allow ourselves to splurge a little.  Our favorites weekend choices: pizza, Chinese takeout, Mexican food.  See -- we exhibit hardly any restraint at all!

Last Sunday evening for our dinner on the patio, I put together a pizza that was so yummy -- and easy, too.  I don't always take culinary shortcuts, but during the weekend I'd rather be enjoying a glass of wine, chatting with Ian, and not running around my kitchen like a madwoman and losing my temper.  That frequently never happens. 

Barbeque Chicken Pizza

Ingredients:
Premade pizza crust (I used Mama Mary's Thin & Crispy)
Rotisserie chicken (our grocery store has them $4.99 on Sundays)
Barbeque sauce
Cheddar Cheese
Olive Oil
Cilantro


I cooked mine on a Pampered Chef pizza stone -- I love this for even baking and the tastiest crust ever.


Chop and rinse your cilantro (maybe one of my most favorite herbs, evah!).  Set aside to dry.


Assemble your ingredients and pull apart some of the rotisserie chicken.


Lightly coat the outer edges of the crust in olive oil for nice browning.  I use a silicone basting brush for this.


Add the barbeque sauce as the base and make sure to leave an outer edge.


Top with your roasted chicken.


Add a generous amount of cilantro!


And of course, don't forget the cheddar cheese.


LOTS of cheddar cheese. 
Don't judge.
It's the weekend.


Bake according to pizza crust instructions.


Once cooled, slice into wedges.  Or squares if you're crazy wild.


And if you're like us, patio food tastes best on fun melamine plates.

What's your favorite weekend splurge food?

PS - A huuuuge thanks to sweet Katie at Miss Dixie for her wonderful guest post yesterday.  I added so many of her recommendations to my shopping wishlist!

  2. This looks so GOOD! I have some pizza ingredients in the fridge now - I think I might make this for dinner tonight! I never thought to put bbq sauce on a homemade pizza before (although I've had it in resturants) but it sounds delicious!

  28. I made this last night and we loved it- same crust and everything! The only switch I made was to mix bbq and marinara together for the sauce. My favorite BBQ pizza in Memphis does this and its fantastic! Thanks for the recipe :)
