Sound good? It is incredibly good. And simple, simple, simple.

Perfect for Friday nights, game nights… or when you need to use leftover rotisserie chicken.

To be honest, I’m always looking for an excuse for this pizza.

I mentioned it was tailor-made just for you. This is how it works. Much of the flavor comes from the BBQ sauce, so be sure it’s good and your favorite. I’m particularly fond of our homemade BBQ sauce and almost always have a jar in the fridge.

However, store-bought works too with your favorite BBQ sauce, whether spicy, mild, sweet, or tangy!

The other ingredients in this ever-so-easy pizza are shredded chicken, cheese, cherry tomatoes, and chopped parsley.

I think every dinner should be as deliciously simple as this pizza.

  • 1 pound pizza dough homemade or store-bought
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup BBQ sauce homemade or store-bought
  • 2/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cooked chicken
  • 1/4 red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • small handful of fresh parsley
  • salt and cracked black pepper to taste
  • red pepper flakes to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Prepare the homemade or store-bought pizza dough according to package instructions. Which likely will mean letting it come to room temperature. Divide the dough and shape into 2 medium round-ish portions and place on parchment lined baking sheet or pizza pan or stone.
  • Spread the BBQ sauce over each pizza, arrange the cheese, shredded chicken, and red onion. Place into preheated oven; bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted, the sauce bubbling and the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven, top with cherry tomatoes, chopped parsley, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
