Last night I watched a cooking show, and the topic was on BBQ. Everything looked so good I could almost smell it. Obviously, I started craving BBQ food, and so I made BBQ Chicken Pizza 🙂
This pizza is easy to make and it is delicious! You get to make your own BBQ sauce (you will not cook the BBQ sauce) and you'll be done in no time.
I have prepared the dough the night before and kept it in the fridge, this usually helps in saving so much time, you can do the same if you're usually busy during the day. All you have to do is, take out the dough half an hour or 15 minutes before using, and follow the steps in the recipe.
Pizza is something that is regularly found on our dinner table, and I'm sure that this BBQ Chicken Pizza will find its way to your dinner table too. Make this pizza and don't forget to drop by and let me know how did you like it 🙂
Let's make this Pizza!
