The Bomb BBQ Chicken Pizza

David went out of town last week. Originally I thought that would give me some time in the evenings to blog, but after the first day of 14 hours with my four little bundles of energy, I realized that by the time 9pm rolled around I was ready to go to sleep. And when Daddy is out of town the big kids get to sleep in my bed, so there was no elbow room for typing. So, I apologize for staying away so long. If any of you had come over to play with my kids I could have shared a few recipes last week, but to make it up to you I am posting two tonight, in honor of this awesome pizza craze we are having around here.

I don’t usually pull out “the bomb”, but sometimes it just the only word that works. Such is the case here with “The Bomb Bacon BBQ Chicken Pizza”.

Author:
Recipe type: Dinner, lunch, recipe
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6 slices
Ingredients
  • Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
  • BBQ Sauce (use your favorite)
  • Whole Roasted Chicken
  • Yellow Onion
  • 3 slices of Cooked Bacon
  • Gouda Cheese (about 16oz)
  • Cilantro for garnish
Instructions
  1. Leave pizza dough out for about 1hr to soften
  2. Roast chicken early in the day so that the meat is cool enough to pull off the bones.
  3. Separate into small pieces and pour BBQ sauce in. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Spread pizza dough and set on wax paper
  5. Smooth out some BBQ sauce on dough
  6. Arrange chicken, sliced onion and bacon crumbles
  7. Top with freshly shredded gouda cheese
  8. Bake on 500 for about 12min

 You will notice that I don’t give any details on my pizza dough. I am currently using the dough that they make fresh at Whole Foods. It’s one of the shortcuts I need right now and I am trying not to feel guilty about it. I can make my own dough and so can you, but right now I am really enjoying bringing it home from the store.

There is a new Mayor in Pizzatown!

I am just going to be honest that 6 months ago my homemade pizza was sub-par. If I could be even more honest I would say that I have been experimenting with pizza for years and have never felt very excited about the finished product. Thankfully my family is gracious, they eat it, and in…

Sneaky Chocolate Mousse

Who knew that cashews, when soaked, could become the base for a creamy, silky, decadent chocolate mousse? Maybe the vegans, but I had no idea and would have never thought to soak cashews for a few hours and put them in the VitaMix, until I was testing a vegan “cheesecake” recipe as an option for…

The Entrée Salad – Chicken Fajita

The first trip David and I took to Austin we ate at a restaurant called Moonshine. It was the first time that we had ever left our children overnight and we were both a little nervous. I remember sitting at the cozy little bar, brick walls surrounding me, dark leather stools and warm lighting trying…

Mama’s Drinkin’ Moonshine

I have spent the last few warm and sunny afternoons sipping on ice cold “Good Girl Moonshine”. This is not the same stuff I drank in college (when I was not such a good girl), this is what I am drinking now that I am in my early 30’s and want to burn fat even when we I am not…

My signature Chicken Pot Pie for National Pi Day

For a few years now I have asked myself the question, “If Bobby Flay came knocking on the door asking if I wanted to throw down in my kitchen, what would be my competition dish?” This is it. This is my signature dish. This is the dinner I would bring a new neighbor or a…

Baby Food and Hurricanes 

I was born and raised in South Florida so I am well acquainted with “Hurricane Season” and all that it takes to prepare. Flashlights, candles, matches, tuna and a variety of other canned food. For years this stash of “hurricane food” would sit in the pantry and no one would touch it. It was totally…
