BBQ Chicken Pizza Recipe

BBQ Chicken Pizza

How can you encourage your children to cook with you in the kitchen? The answer is easy, make these BBQ Chicken Pizzas for dinner and you find helpers in no time! Last night my son Mathieu and I made these for supper. For this recipe I used Boneless, Skinless Breasts. When trying to decide what kind of pizza I should make, my husband told me about a pizza he recently had at Tomato Bros. I tweaked it a bit to make my own version.

First I made a rub for my chicken breasts and cooked them in the oven. While the chicken breasts were cooking, we chopped the vegetables. Jalapeños, green onions and red onions complemented the BBQ sauce well. Since it's was a weekday and we wanted dinner to be made quickly, we used Dempster's Pita Pockets as a base to make things more convenient.

While eating the pizza, we liked the little spicy kick it had. When it came time to eat, we dropped some arugula salad on top of the pizza for some color and veggies. This pizza will be on the menu again this Spring. Do you make pizza at home? If so, what toppings do you like on your pizza?


450g Boneless, Skinless Breasts
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp pepper

3. When the chicken is cooked, remove from the oven and slice.
4. Turn to oven to 425F.
5. Divide the chicken on each pita pockets.
