Lazy BBQ Chicken Nugget Pizza

A quick dinner! BBQ Chicken Pizza the lazy way... (or the too busy to cook tonight way!) On the pizza pictured above the chicken is only on half the pizza because some of us in my household don't care for meat. Don't worry I doubled the chicken nuggets in the recipe below so you'll have plenty to cover the entire pizza. The amounts are approximate. If you like less sauce, use less. More cheese? Go for it! Some people prefer green onions instead of red onion, I like both. Just don't make it too complicated, or it won't be...

Lazy BBQ Chicken Nugget Pizza

1 package refrigerated pizza dough (I used Great Value, Walmart's generic brand)
1/4 c. pizza sauce
1/4 c. bottled BBQ sauce (your favorite flavor)
2-3 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1/8 c. chopped cilantro
1/8 - 1/4 c. chopped red onion
12 chicken nuggets (cooked- microwaved for 1-1/2 minutes)

Preheat oven according the pizza dough package directions. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and spread the dough out over the sheet stretching it to spread to create a thin crust. Pour pizza sauce and 1/4 c. bottle BBQ sauce onto crust and spread all over the dough. Sprinkle dough evenly with the cheese. Cut up chicken nuggets in bite sized pieces and cover with enough BBQ sauce to coat the pieces on all sides. Sprinkle chicken, onion, and cilantro over the pizza. Bake according to the pizza dough package directions. (I baked ours at 400 degrees F. for 15 minutes.) Let sit a bit before slicing! This makes 1 large pizza. With a salad it serves our family of 4.

  1. This would be a great recipe to use up left over chicken too!

  2. Clair, yes and I've also use a Rotisserie chicken before. Cut up or shredded chicken is a great thing to keep on hand, it cuts the work down A TON!!
