BBQ Chicken pizza….

Y’all, the dinner I made tonight was seriously good. And it was seriously fast. Double win.

Ok, so you use this recipe for Instant Thin Crust Pizza. You’ve got several bags of the dry ingredients in your pantry that you made up one day during nap time, of course. Or maybe not.  =)

Early in the day, you take a bag of the cooked, chopped chicken breasts that you’d frozen out of the freezer. Dump some of your favorite BBQ sauce in there, and then let it thaw in the fridge all day. We like Trader Joe’s Smoky.

So, make up the thin crust. I’ve discovered that you don’t need a mixer to make the crust. Just use a spoon and a mixing bowl.

Roll it out nice and thin, and bake for 5 minutes at 450 on a hot pizza stone. Then spread about 1/4 c. of warm bbq sauce on your pizza crust. Sprinkle a little shredded mozzarella on top. Warm up the marinated chicken, and sprinkle that all over. You’ll need about 1 c. of chopped bbq chicken. Take an onion, cut it in half, and thinly slice it. Spread some of those onion slices on top of the chicken. Top it all with more shredded mozzarella.

Then it’s back in the oven for another 6-8 minutes until the cheese is a little brown.

Scurry around the kitchen and throw together a quick salad with your mom’s lettuce from her garden.

It was heavenly, people. I’m looking forward to having the leftovers tomorrow for lunch…. =)

Thanks for sharing! I need more recipes like this that I can prepare ahead but still cook fresh. Mark is getting tired of my freezer meals :)
