BBQ Chicken Pizza Recipe

I could lie and blame my current financial situation on our failing economy, but the fact of the matter is I was broke long before the current recession. I’m terrible with money and I usually spend it before I make it. I also tend to live far outside my means in terms of expensive dinners, booze, and electronics are concerned.

With the new year less than a month away, I‘ve decided to make some strides to get myself out of debt and learn to better manage my money.That means less dining out and more dining in. For the past couple of weeks I have been cooking at home a lot more than I have in the past. Not only that, but I’ve been cooking on a budget. Lots of inexpensive seafood, chili’s, soups, & homemade pizzas.

Here’s a cheap and easy recipe for BBQ Chicken Pizza:

Here’s what you’ll need:

-1 (12 inch) pre-baked pizza crust
-1/2 cup barbecue sauce
-1/2 cup diced grilled chicken
-1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
-1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
-1/4 cup chopped red onion
-1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
-1 pizza pan

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Place the pizza crust on a pizza pan or cookie sheet. Spread with BBQ sauce and chicken. Sprinkle evenly with red pepper, green pepper and onion and cover with cheese. Bake the pizza for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

BBQ Chicken pizza is ALWAYS a big favorite in my house. We like Thai chicken pizza too; I make a spicy peanut sauce with peanut butter, ginger, garlic, red chili flakes, and lime juice, and top the pizza with chicken, mozzarella, bean sprouts, and scallions, then drizzle the peanut sauce over the top. Mmm.
