BBQ Chicken Pizza
I don't know what it is about BBQ chicken pizza but I'm obsessed with it. Ironically I'm not all that into BBQ sauce... I mean, I like it, but I'm not one of those people dipping everything I eat into it. A few days ago the craving for BBQ chicken pizza hit and I was so excited. Ironically that day my oven decided it was done and broke! Ugh- of all days to quit on me, that was a sad choice. Once the oven was back in action I knew my first meal was going to be this pizza.
I've made a version of BBQ chicken pizza before but I wanted something with a bit more depth of flavor. This pizza was excellent and resulted in a pizza that was more flavorful. John, who is not quite as sold on BBQ chicken pizza, loved it and was raving about it. Definitely give it a shot- you'll be pleased!
