Remember the tacos? and chili? Today Paige asked us to have a party for a food that's had a party about it for a long time - Pizza!
BBQ Chicken Pizza with Arugula
So, this recipe is only half mine. The BBQ pulled chicken is something I saw on Food Network by Ellie Krieger. We love the BBQ sauce from this recipe and that is uses a store bought roasted chicken, great when you have very little time. Another great part is that if you get a large chicken you’ll get at least two meals out of this for a family of four. (We’re not a family of four yet, we just eat like one!)
So make the BBQ pulled chicken sandwiches and save your left overs for this great pizza!
BBQ Chicken Pizza with Arugula Salad
Prep time: 10 min
Cook Time: 15-20 min
2 cups of leftover BBQ pulled chicken (recipe here)
1 ½ - 2 cups of smoked mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 premade pizza dough such as buttoni
1 cup Arugula
pinch of salt
Juice of ¼ a lime
1 tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
We use the premade pizza dough here instead of raw dough because it stands up better to the loads of BBQ chicken we add on. Top pizza dough with BBQ chicken, then smoked mozzarella and cook for about 15-20 minutes. While the pizza cooks, prepare the arugula salad. Combine salt, lime juice, and oil in the bottom of a bowl, toss with arugula. Top the pizza with Arugula salad before slicing.
