Homemade Barbecued Chicken Pizza

by Divine Domesticity on January 26th, 2009

Craving a taste of summer to brighten up boring winter dinners? I have got the perfect recipe for you!

I have the secret for fast, delicious, homemade pizza. Forget making the dough from scratch. I've tried many times, and it was just never as good. Hop on over to a local pizza joint and buy pre-made pizza dough. I get mine from Papa Murphy's. It comes ready to bake, all rolled out, and on its own baking sheet for $2 (for a large).


Barbecued Chicken Pizza
Serves 4

Olive oil, for baking sheet
All-purpose flour, for dusting
1 pound store-bought frozen pizza dough, thawed
1/2 cooked chicken, (about 1 1/4 pounds), shredded (about 2 cups)
1/2 cup store-bought barbecue sauce
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 large zucchini, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced
Coarse salt and ground pepper

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly oil a large baking sheet; set aside.
  
2. On a lightly floured work surface, use a rolling pin and your hands to roll and stretch dough to a 15-by-10-inch oval (if dough becomes too elastic to work with, let rest a few minutes). Transfer to prepared baking sheet.
  
3. In a medium bowl, combine chicken and barbecue sauce. Leaving a 1-inch border, scatter chicken mixture evenly over dough; sprinkle with cheese, then zucchini and onion. Season with salt and pepper.
  
4. Bake until crust is golden and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
