Super Frugal BBQ Pizza

I LOVE BBQ CHICKEN PIZZA! Sorry if it sounded like I was shouting but other than plain cheese pizza, BBQ Chicken is my absolute favorite. There is something about the sweet, tangy sauce and the gooey cheese that just makes my day.

We have two places here in town to get BBQ chicken pizza and neither one is very cheap so I've taken to making it when I need a fix. Sometimes it's 'good enough' and other times it's not even close. This last week I was so dog-gone close to perfection that I think angels wept.

Here's what I did:

Make your favorite pizza crust. I use a knock-off PizzaHut recipe and let it rise in the fridge overnight.

You'll need to let it come to room temperature before you use it and after you've formed it onto your baking sheet spread BBQ sauce on it. I used Sweet Baby Rays which was on sale a few weeks ago and I got the bottle for free. This was the perfect flavor.

Then the cheese. We always have on hand the mexican cheese blend from Costco. We go through so much shredded cheese that it makes sense for me to keep this on hand.

Then I used red carmen peppers that I bought at the Farmer's Market. I sliced these thinkly and then cut them with scissors so they would be easier to eat.

I had some leftover purple onion in the fridge that I nuked in the microwave for a few minutes and then sprinkled around.

Next came the chicken. DH had pulled off the rest of the meat off a rotisserie chicken and I cut it up with the scissors.

And because I like a lot of cheese I put some more on top before it went into the oven at 425 degrees Farenheit until it smelled yummy good. And it was absolutely yummy delicious. I have plenty of peppers, chicken and sauce left for many more pizzas, too. The peppers and chicken went into the freezer and I cannot wait until our next pizza night. This was definitely a Cool Idea!
