BBQ Chicken Pizza

Treat the whole family with this delicious summer BBQ pizza!

Ingredients

Easy Pizza Dough:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ⅔ cup lukewarm water
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

Toppings:

  • 3 medium chicken breasts (thawed if frozen), chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¾ cup red bell pepper, washed and chopped
  • ½ cup red onion, chopped
  • ½ cup sweet BBQ sauce (or any other favorite BBQ sauce), plus more to drizzle on top of pizza
  • 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. Mix whole wheat flour, yeast, salt, sugar, and water in a medium bowl. Gradually add in all-purpose flour, mixing with your hands, until a ball of dough forms.
  2. Knead the dough for 2-3 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place back in bowl, cover with a cloth or towel, and allow dough to rise for 10-15 minutes.
  3. While dough is rising, ask an adult to help you cook chicken with olive oil in a large skillet until meat is no longer pink. Add pepper, red bell pepper, and onion to skillet and cook an additional 3-5 minutes, or until vegetables begin to soften. Drain any excess liquid from skillet.
  4. On a floured surface, roll out dough into a large, thin circle or rectangle. Place dough on a greased pizza pan or baking sheet.
  5. Spread ½ cup BBQ sauce evenly over pizza crust and sprinkle evenly with most of cheese, saving a small amount. Top with chicken, peppers, and onion mixture. Sprinkle remaining cheese over pizza and drizzle with a small amount of BBQ sauce.
  6. Bake at 375°F for 15 minutes or until cheese melts. Ask an adult to help you take the pizza out of the oven, and allow pizza to cool slightly before serving.
