With football season in full throttle, we’ve been making a ton of pizzas at the DD house. And it’s been an absolute God-send to keep our freezer overstocked with this pizza dough.

With that, this BBQ pizza came together so incredibly fast, especially with some leftover rotisserie chicken we had to use up.

But if you don’t have any pizza dough on hand, store-bought is absolutely fine here. And if you have a pizza stone, I highly recommend using it!

But the most important thing to note is to use your absolute favorite BBQ sauce for the best results possible. You’ll want it just right – perfectly tangy and sweet in every single cheesy bite.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 pound pizza dough, homemade or store-bought
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons favorite bbq sauce (we love Stubb’s)
  • 2 cups leftover shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 cup shredded smoked cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded whole milk mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly coat a baking sheet or pizza pan with olive oil.
  2. Working on a surface that has been sprinkled with cornmeal, roll out the pizza into a 12-inch-diameter round. Transfer to prepared baking sheet or pizza pan.
  3. Using a small ladle, spread bbq sauce over the surface of the dough in an even layer, leaving a 1/2-inch border.
  4. Top with chicken, cheeses and onion; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Place into oven and bake for 20-24 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheeses have melted.
  6. Serve immediately, garnished with cilantro, if desired.
