Not only is it incredibly yummy, as all teriyaki is, but is also a super quick and easy dinner to make at home.

There is something… special about a homemade pizza. Maybe it’s the dough… or the fresh topping… or the fact you taylor made it for you!

While I love our BBQ Chicken Pizza, I’m particularly fond of pizza with broccoli and bacon!

Teriyaki Chicken Pizza Ingredients

The exact ingredient measurements are in the recipe card at the bottom of this post. Here’s an overview of what you need to make this easy pizza:

  • 1 lb. pizza dough (homemade or store-bought)
  • Teriyaki sauce
  • Cooked chicken (like Rotisserie)
  • Bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • Broccoli florets
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese

Pizza Dough

Let’s talk about the dough. Making homemade is always best. In fact, I like to make a couple of batches of homemade pizza dough and freeze it so I always have some on hand.

But in a pinch, or on busy nights, store-bought is easy. And yes, almost as good.

I like Trader Joe’s pizza dough (both whole wheat and white) because it’s always available and easy to find in the refrigerated section.

The trick to using refrigerated store-bought dough is to leave it on the counter until it comes to room temperature. That way, it’s easily stretched into the pan or stone in the size you need.

Teriyaki Chicken Pizza Sauce

Obviously, the bulk of the flavor in this pizza lives in the sauce. A great teriyaki sauce is key.

My favorite, unfortunately, isn’t one readily available outside of Seattle. I love Metropolitan Market’s own label Teriyaki BBQ sauce. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and spicy — and works great on a salmon fillet as well.

Kikkoman makes a honey teriyaki BBQ sauce that’s pretty good too. But use your favorite!

Easy Teriyaki Chicken Pizza

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 22 minutes

This Teriyaki Chicken Pizza is loaded with tender chicken, fresh broccoli, spring onions, crispy bacon, and melty mozzarella cheese. All topping that distinctively sweet yet savory teriyaki sauce we love.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb pizza dough ([homemade or store-bought) room temperature
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 cup cooked and chopped chicken (like Rotisserie)
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 cups broccoli florets (1 medium size head)
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. If the pizza dough is refrigerated, bring it to room temperature; preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon; crumble. In the same skillet, add the broccoli florets and cook for a minute or two until they've turned bright green.
  3. Stretch the room temperature dough in a circular motion, then lay it on a flat surface like a sheet pan or round pizza pan. If you have a pizza peel or stone, sprinkle some coarse cornmeal before stretching the dough on it. Flour works too.
  4. Once your pizza dough is stretched and ready to cook, brush it with the teriyaki sauce. Then leaving a 1-inch border, layer the cooked chicken, crumbled bacon, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes onto the dough. Sprinkled the mozzarella cheese over the top; season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Transfer the pizza into the oven and bake until the crust is golden. Garnish with sliced fresh greens and red pepper flakes if desired. Slice into wedges and serve!

Notes
