This is my favorite type of pizza, and the boys (big and little alike) love it. How I wish there was a Trader Joe's where I could get quick and good pizza dough. Sigh. This was originally a calzone recipe from, but I have modified it accordingly.


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Fry bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove from the pan to drain on paper towels; crumble.
  3. Drain all but a tablespoon of fat from the skillet. Add the onion and shredded chicken to the hot bacon grease in the pan.
  4. Fry over medium heat until onion is tender. Stir in barbecue sauce or more to taste, and remove from heat.
  5. Mix in the cooked bacon.
  6. Roll the pizza crust dough out onto a greased cookie sheet. Spread barbecue sauce on dough. Top with mozzarella cheese, and then finally chicken mixture. Sprinkle chopped cilantro on the top.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes and serve.

I would like to apply for the position of making this recipe. As the maker and owner of many exquisite pizza recipes myself, I feel sure that I am qualified for this position. I have MANY references that I can provide. Have I talked you into it?

Yum, this is a great variation! Shredding the chicken is a great idea - it really covered the whole pizza that way, versus chopping it. Thanks for sharing! Best of 2012 Tag

Great pizza!! It was so easy to make and had tons of flavor. I left out the cilantro (do NOT like it) and was not paying attention to the recipe when I topped the pizza and put the chicken mixture on first and then the cheese. Had a little bit of leftover chicken mixture so will make a personal pizza or sandwich with it. Going into my Best of Cookbook. Made for 2012 Spring PAC.
