This BBQ Chicken Pizza recipe is even better than the famous CPK version! I ingredient swap makes all the difference in the flavor. With a little store bought help, this pizza is ready faster than delivery!



  • 2 (10 inch) store bought pizza crusts
  • 1 cup (plus a couple tablespoons) low sugar BBQ Sauce
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thin
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • Fresh cilantro leaves for garnish (optional, can also substitute fresh parsley)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place the pizza crusts on 2 sheet pans. Follow the package instructions for frozen pizza crust, some will tell you to let the crust defrost first and some will say cook right from frozen.
  2. Add about 1/2 cup of the bbq sauce to each pizza crust. Toss the shredded chicken in a couple of tablespoons of the bbq sauce, just enough to coat it lightly, then divide the chicken and add it to each pizza crust.
  3. Divide the red onion and the mozzarella cheese in half and add it to each pizza crust. Place the pizzas in the oven for 12-15 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  4. Top the pizzas with fresh, torn cilantro leaves (if using), slice into wedges and serve.
