Husband-Friendly Chicken Pizza

"I created this recipe for my husband who loves BBQ flavored pizza and he absolutely loved it. We basically tried a variety of pizzas and made a list of the ingredients that were working well together and the ones that weren't and here we are."

  1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking and stirring until the onion is very tender and dark brown, 15 to 20 minutes more.
  2. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate; crumble when cool.
  3. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  4. Press the refrigerated pizza crust onto the baking sheet to fit the size of the pan. Spread the barbeque sauce evenly over the dough, and sprinkle with the shredded chicken, caramelized onion, bacon, Gorgonzola cheese, and diced jalapeno pepper. Season with paprika and garlic powder. Top with the shredded mozzarella cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese has melted and is bubbly and the pizza dough is golden brown on the bottom, 15 to 17 minutes.

Awesome! I made my own bbq sauce, left out jalapeno

Wow, this was so good! I used less bbq sauce then it called for (i just eye-balled it) and substituted turkey bacon for the bacon to make it a *little* bit healthier. Will for sure be making t...

Absolutely delicious! We made just a couple tweaks for personal preference, but we pretty much made this recipe as it stands, and we LOVED it. (Husband hates strong cheese so we left off the g...

Marvelous! True to its name, my hubby loved it! It was a great way to use leftovers from the Sticky Rotisserie Chicken recipe. Like others, I subbed feta for Gorgonzola, omitted the jalapeno and...

I added sauteed mushrooms & red onions, and just used the shredded pizza cheese I had in the fridge. Huband & daughter approved!

I love this recipe. I always use Boboli crust and when I cook the chicken I add garlic and italian seasoning. I mix about half and half Sweet Baby Rays and Jack Daniels which results in a semi...
