BBQ Chicken Pizza

Pizza pre oven
It's never a good feeling when you're making something to think "I'm going to be the only one who is going to eat this."  While I was making it though Jackson was chowing down on some red pepper so maybe I would be happily surpised!
  • 1 (12 inch) pre-baked pizza crust
  • 1 cup barbeque sauce
  • 2 skinless boneless chicken breast halves, cooked and cubed
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup sliced sweet bell peppers
  • 1 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place pizza crust on a medium baking sheet. Spread the crust with barbeque sauce. Top with chicken, cilantro, bell peppers, onion, and cheese.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly

Well I was happily surprised by Josh, he liked it!  I thought it was great, Jackson not so much.  Pizza just isn't Jackson's favorite thing yet, but we keep trying!!! It was really easy and I loved all the flavors together!!
