bbq chicken pizza

7.12.2011

Last weekend, GT and I hosted game night, which we often hosted when living in NY.  We missed them so much, we decided to round up some friends at the last minute. Anyways, I wanted to make a simple finger food that everyone will love. And who doesn't love pizza? It is one of my favorite things to eat since having lived most of my life in the NYC area, where you can get the best pizza in the U.S. I may be bias here. But the best pizza I've ever had was in... nope, not Naples... but Venice. It was the most AMAZING thing I've ever had. Til this day, I've yet to eat pizza like it. I must go back.

bbq chicken pizza

ingredients
  • 1 batch of pizza dough, recipe here or you can buy it pre-made from the grocery
  • 2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
  • 2 cups spinach
  • bbq sauce (I didn't have time to make any, so I bought a bottle of Stubb's. One of the few brands I can find that didn't use fructose corn syrup)
  • 2 cups fresh mozzarella
directions
  1. At least 45 minutes before making the pizza, plastone once a baking  the lower third of the oven. Preheat the oven as hot as possible (500° F/260° C). NOTE: If you do not have a baking stone, then use the back of a jelly pan.
  2. Flour your hands (palms, backs and knuckles). Take 1 piece of dough and roll it out with a rolling pin to the shape you want (about 9-12 inches/23-30 cm in diameter - for a 6 ounces/180g piece of dough), place it on a piece of aluminum foil.
  3. Spread some bbq sauce and then lightly top it with spinach, chicken, and mozzerella.
  4. Slide the garnished pizza onto the stone in the oven or bake directly on the jelly pan. Close the door and bake for about 5-8 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
  5. Take the pizza out of the oven and transfer it to a cutting board or your plate.
