There are some seriously classic flavors worth pulling out at every Game Day shindig. Nachos and chili. Popcorn and Chex™ Mix.
And, of course, BBQ Chicken Pizza. Sweet and savory barbecue sauce drizzled over a warm pizza crust, topped with shredded chicken and flavor-bazoomed with cilantro and green onions. Top it all off with cheesy cheddar and you’ve really got a winning flavor combo.
A combo so good, you really don’t need to tinker. But we believe in the upgrade. And decided to turn this favorite pizza into a bubbly baked, pull-apart pizza. The results from our “testing panel” of party animals? “THIS IS THE BEST PIZZA EVAAARRRRRR!!”
The ingredient lineup starts here. Two tubs of Pillsbury™ pizza dough, cheese, more cheese, shredded rotisserie chicken, barbecue sauce and a few diced savories. That’s all you need, baby.
Open the pizza crust and slice into little rounds, as if you were slicing off icebox cookies from a frozen log.
Then layer these slices together with half of the cheese, barbecue sauce, chicken, scallions and cilantro. You can layer everything right in the baking pan. Or gently toss everything together in a large bowl and make sure it’s well mixed. Both methods make quick work of this simple task.
Layer it all in a well-greased 9x13-inch baking pan, then top with an additional layer of cheese and toppings. Just to keep it extra fabulous.
Bake until golden brown and puffy. Then garnish with some extra diced greens for added flair.
Call in the troops—it’s time to serve!
Hand out forks, plates and a stack of napkins and let your crowd dive on in. This dish is about to win it all.
