Superbowl Pizza

I have hung onto this pizza recipe for quite a while now, just waiting for the opportunity to make it, knowing full well that if I made a barbeque chicken pizza for my family they would say something like, "What? Barbeque Chicken pizza! Eeewww!"

Anyway, the stars were aligned on Superbowl Sunday when my husband and our oldest son went to downtown Tempe to scream and howl with hundreds of other people while they watched the Cardinals (almost) take the Steelers, and our youngest son went to hang out with his youth group from church at a friend's house to watch the game.

And I (weeeeee) was left in blessed solitude for a whole 4 hours. I seized the day and made this scrumptious recipe. And it was well worth the wait. This isn't the healthiest recipe, (sorry, Allan!) but it is delicious. And if you want to make a few changes you can certainly make it a healthier pizza. So, without further ado...


BBQ Grilled Chicken Pizza
4 oz. boneless chicken breast
pinch salt
pinch pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 cup red onion, diced
1/4 cup red peppers, chopped
4 slices bacon
3/4 cup barbeque sauce
2 8" Boboli pizza crusts
2/3 cup mozzerella cheese
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon dried basil
1. Preheat grill to medium and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Season chicken breast with salt and pepper. Oil chicken; grill chicken until grilled through, about 5 minutes on each side. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces.
2. Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Saute onions and peppers for 2 minutes. Remove from pan. Cook bacon in same pan and chop.
3. Spread barbeque sauce onto crust, leaving a 1/2 inch border; top with cheese, chicken, bacon, onions, and peppers.
4. Bake pizzas in lower 1/3 of oven, 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
