Happy pizza Friday!! I’ve been saving this one for you. It’s special.

I had put my original love of barbecue chicken pizza on hold for quite a while, because I’ve been seriously obsessed with the chicken enchilada pizza. If you’ve tried it, I’m sure you totally understand. And if you haven’t, then you need to… because SO GOOD. But barbecue chicken pizza still has the key to my pizza loving heart…or belly. Almost all of it.

It’s sweet. It’s spicy. It’s crispy and cheesy and everything you desire in a good pizza.

Easy to make homemade dough with a medley of fresh ingredients. Don’t just enjoy that fresh local corn eaten straight from the cob. I mean, it’s amazing that way, but be sure to throw it on some other things while it’s around too, like this pizza!

I’m a huge fan of thin crust over thick crust pizza so…

  • 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1/4 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 C all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1-2 Tbsp olive oil if needed

  • 1/2 C barbecue sauce homemade or store bought

Instructions

  • In a glass measuring cup, combine warm water with yeast and sugar. Allow to proof for 5-10 minutes.

Use remaining 1/4 cup barbecue sauce to coat shredded chicken in a medium bowl.
