My husband and I love this BBQ chicken pizza recipe, especially when we take it up a notch by adding other toppings that we love, including smoky bacon and creamy Gorgonzola. My mouth starts to water just thinking about it! —Megan Crow, Lincoln, Nebraska

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir 4-6 minutes or until softened. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 20-25 minutes or until deep golden brown, stirring occasionally.
  2. Unroll and press dough onto bottom and 1/2 in. up sides of a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake 8 minutes.
  3. Spread barbecue sauce over dough; top with chicken, cooked onion, bacon, Gorgonzola cheese and jalapenos. Sprinkle with paprika and garlic powder; top with mozzarella cheese. Bake pizza 8-10 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is melted.
    Freeze option: Bake pizza crust as directed; cool. Top with all the ingredients as directed, and securely wrap and freeze unbaked pizza. To use, unwrap pizza; bake as directed, increasing time as necessary.
Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
