We ordered pizza the other night from one of our favorite places. The pizza places in our town are having pizza wars and we get to be the happy recipients of cheap pizza! We ordered a barbeque chicken pizza and a canadian bacon pizza. I made a salad and it made a great, quick and fairly cheap meal. As we were finishing up, my daughter announced that the pizza was good but she liked my barbeque chicken pizza better than theirs! I was very flattered because she often is more critical of my food than her teenage brother who very often doesn't even taste the food before it get swallowed!
We do make homeade pizza more often than ordering it. We have it so often that I keep some purchased crusts and mozzeralla cheese in the freezer. I also keep cooked and crumbled sausage and hamburger so making pizza at home is just as easy as driving to the pick-up place! Not to mention usually cheaper!
Here's my recipe. The mystery is the sauce and it's so easy to do!
Barbeque chicken pizza
1 prepared crust, I use a whole-wheat one
1/2 cup barbeque sauce, I use my secret homeade sauce
3/4 cup pizza sauce or canned tomato sauce with 1 teaspoon italian spice seasoning mixed in. Use the cheapest pizza sauce you can find.
1-2 tablespoons honey, to taste
chopped grilled chicken
1-2 cups cojack cheese
diced onions and black olives, to taste
Mix the barbeque sauce, pizza sauce and honey in a bowl. Ladle the sauce onto the pizza crust as thick as you like. Top with diced grilled chicken, about 1 breast per pizza. Sprinkle with diced onions and olives and top with cheese. Bake as directed on the prebaked shell.
I have to admit, I do like mine better than the store bought one too!
