BBQ Chicken and Blue Cheese Pizza

This is the second time around with this recipe so I wanted to get it on the blog. It’s a terrific pizza and rather quick to put together. It’s from August 2011 Cooking Light magazine.

I used a pre-made store bought dough and split it  I like the crust more on the thin side. I also grilled a large chicken breast instead of using rotisserie chicken.


1 (8-ounce) prebaked thin pizza crust (such as Mama Mary’s)
1/3 cup barbecue sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast
1/2 cup vertically sliced red onion
1/2 cup coarsely chopped yellow bell pepper
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
2 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced (about 1/4 pound)


  1. Preheat oven to 500°.
  2. Place pizza crust on a baking sheet.
  3. Spread sauce over the crust, leaving a 1/2-inch border.
  4. Top with chicken and remaining ingredients.
  5. Bake 10 minutes or until cheese melts and crust is crisp.
  6. Cut into 12 wedges.

Yields 6 servings; two slices each.
