BBQ Chicken Pizza

My husband and I have attempted this recipe before trying to recreate the BBQ Chicken Pizza at Cafe Excel in College Station! It's not too difficult to do and this is a great one. The key difference is tossing the chicken in the BBQ sauce before topping the pizza!! ENJOY!! I served it with roasted asparagus:)

This is from Sandra Lee on Food Network!


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 pound chicken tenders
  • 2/3 cup barbecue sauce
  • Flour, for dusting surface
  • 1 (13.8-ounce) package pizza dough We used Boboli...
  • 3/4 cup shredded Gouda
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan
  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken tenders and saute until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat. When chicken is cool enough to handle, dice chicken to yield a little over 1 cup. In a small bowl, toss chicken with 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce. Set aside.

On a floured surface, roll out dough and place on a greased sheet pan. Shape to fill the sheet pan, about a 15 by 10-inch rectangle. Spread remaining barbecue sauce evenly over pizza dough. Sprinkle Gouda, mozzarella, Parmesan, onions, and chicken over top. Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese bubbles. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and cut into pieces.
