Easy Italian BBQ Chicken Pizza

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 18 mins

Use a combination of your favorite spaghetti sauce BBQ sauce for a delicious pizza. Amounts and ingredients are completely flexible. I usually use a little more sauce and a little more cheese. And I usually keep some roasted garlic and carmelized onions in the freezer, so this is very quick.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 pillsbury pizza crust (in the cardboard tube)
  • 2 ounces spaghetti sauce
  • 2 ounces barbecue sauce
  • 8 ounces cooked chicken, shredded
  • 4 ounces cheese, shredded (I used a Italian 5 cheese blend)
  • 8 garlic cloves, roasted
  • 1 red onion, carmelized


  1. Follow directions on pizza crust package for pre-baking.
  2. Combine spaghetti sauce and barbecue sauce, then spoon it onto the pre-baked crust.
  3. Top the crust with half of the cheese, all of the chicken, garlic, and onion.
  4. Top with remaining the cheese.
  5. Bake pizza according to directions on pizza crust package.

so yummy. made this without the garlic and spaghetti sauce since i didn't have them, and it turned out so good - carmelizing the red onion first made it great. this is a keeper

Oh my goodness, this is quite possibly one of if not THE best pizza I've ever eaten, let alone made myself! I used your Black Gold Balsamic Barbecue Sauce and Classico Spicy Tomato & Basil for the sauces. I used a mixture of the bits of various cheeses I had hanging around in the fridge (goat cheese crumbles, Monterey jack, cheddar & gouda) and probably used about 5 ounces (was trying to use it all up). This was a 10-star meal for me and I'm afraid I'll never be able to exactly recreate it again *sad* Ah well, such is life :) Thank you soooo much for the recipe!

We really like this! I used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and Pizza Quick sauce instead of spaghetti sauce. Loved the sauce and think I will use a little more next time. I'd never caramelized red onions before and they were delicious! Only used half a red onion, but will use the whole onion next time. DH suggested I add some bacon next time too. Thanks for posting!
