Barbecued Chicken Pizza with Peppers Recipe

A boxed crust mix and cooked chicken make this flavorful pizza a cinch to prepare. "It bakes up fast and is a wonderful way to please pizza lovers," says Autumn Ruhl of Montgomery, Michigan. TIP: "We like a dark molasses-based barbecue sauce and sometimes use refrigerated dough instead of the boxed mix," Autumn adds.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:4-6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 small green pepper, julienned
