The best barbecue pizza

Sorry about the lack of a picture. I was so hungry that I didn’t even think about getting a picture until after it was demolished. Next time!

Once upon a time there was a Nick-n-Willy’s pizza place near my old apartment that has since closed down. They had the best BBQ pizza that I had ever had, and when the closed I was very sad. However, it is a happy day because I have perfected my recipe and have now moved the “best ever” to my creation! And now I shall share my knowledge of BBQ pizza with you lucky souls :). I also made this salad to accompany it.


  • 16 oz pizza dough (I used Publix)
  • Sweet Baby Ray’s Original Barbecue Sauce
  • 3-4 Slices of red onion (split up into rings)
  • 1 cup Mexican four cheese blend
  • Dried cilantro (fresh would work great too!)
  • Approx. half pound of raw chicken
  • Olive oil & silicone brush (pastry brush would work too, but why would you want to use it?!)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Slice chicken and sautee with olive oil until done (approx 10 – 12 minutes).
  3. Roll out pizza dough onto a lightly oiled pizza stone (or cookie sheet).
  4. Brush top with olive oil and poke with fork.
  5. Put into oven for 10 minutes, so dough begins to bake.
  6. Assemble pizza by spreading barbecue sauce, as desired, on the pizza crust, then top with cheese, generous serving of cilantro, cheese, red onions and lastly, chicken.
  7. Bake for another 20 minutes, take out and allow to cool a few minutes before slicing.
