Food Friday: BBQ Chicken Pizza



I am Italian, so I initially thought that pizza without a tomato sauce was absurd. After much insistence by Jimmy, I finally agreed to try homemade BBQ chicken pizza. He substituted tomato sauce for BBQ and topped it with cilantro, onions and BBQ chicken. This pizza is better than I ever imagined and is the perfect twist on a traditional Italian staple.

What is your favorite type of pizza?





And Happy 30th to my beautiful and smart friend Anne!

  4. Hi. Found you via Lou Boos Shoes.

    That pizza looks great. Friday is usually home made pizza night at our house. I blogged about it recently.

    My fav pizza at the moment has goats cheese, walnuts and honey on - yummy!

    Just had a little look around at your blog, and wished I lived near to the 'Icing on the Cake' - looks wonderful.

  7. I love bbq chicken pizza! i'm also a fan of pesto with veggies or just traditional with peppers, mushrooms & cheese. i'm from chicago so i feel as though pizza is something you just know.

    and let me tell you, i have never had chicago style pizza outside of chicago. they just can't do it right!

  10. This is one of my favorite types of pizza too, but I've actually never made it at home. Yours looks incredible and I'm definitely going to try it now. I get into pizza ruts where I made the same kind (pepperoni) over and over again. But I was recently thinking about buying some truffle oil and branching out. Yum, my stomach is growling just thinking of pizza right now. Have a great weekend, Marcie!

  12. Oh, I LOVE BBQ Chicken Pizza! Well, to be honest, I don't really love BBQ sauce, so I usually just eat the grilled chicken off the top when my best friend isn't looking. But this looks so tasty and the idea of making homemade pizza is inspired!

  14. My faves are kinda boring and always include lots of veggies. I love traditional basil, tomato, cheese. I did make one with asian pear, prosciutto + blue cheese a while back, and it was heavenly :)

  15. Thanks for stopping by my blog! My favorite pizza is cheese with bbq sauce (instead of marinara) and extra pineapple! It's just delicious and you should try it if you're a pineapple lover!

    Hope you'll stop by again soon!

  16. My favorite is pepperoni and olives, but I enjoy all different kinds of mixtures! I haven't tried bbq pizza though. I have heard of it. I would give it a try!

  17. This is one of my faves - I never thought I'd like it, but a friend converted me and there was no turning back. These days I've rediscovered pizza via gluten-free crusts so I'm back in the game. I'll take anything!! (sad, but true), but really do go for a spinach artichoke or traditional pepperoni.

    Have a great weekend, Marcie!

    xoxo,

  18. Am not overly keen on pizza, but my favourite comes with loads of vegetables, garlic and some cheese - I always have one when at the South of France - the only place where I can enjoy an excellent pizza. Enjoy the weekend!
