Pizza Pizza

How to make a simple and delicious homemade pizza. This dinner tastes like true comfort food but takes very little work or preparation, depending on what you're using ingredients-wise (a hint: just a little extra effort - like grating some smoked gouda or using thick-cut applewood smoked bacon) goes a LONG way.

Spread a Boboli crust with decent-quality BBQ sauce (not TOO much - a little goes a long way).

Grill and chop a chicken breast. Throw the pieces in a bowl with about a tablespoon of BBQ sauce and toss to coat.

Chop up about half of a red onion and two strips of uncooked bacon. (Tip: I cut my uncooked bacon with kitchen scissors instead of with a knife.) Sprinkle chicken, bacon, and onion on the pizza crust.

Top with cheese. I personally like smoked gouda on this pizza but mozz or provolone work just as well.

Bake at 450 degrees until the cheese starts to brown and you can tell the bacon is cooked through (maybe about 12 minutes). Sprinkle with fresh cilantro if you have any. I promise, this is the most delicious of homemade pizzas and super-easy.

Other great homemade pizza combinations:
  • Pesto sauce, chicken sausage, and crumbled goat cheese
  • Pesto, fresh tomato slices, basil leaves, fresh mozzerella
