Tyson BBQ Chicken Pizza with Homemade BBQ Sauce

My kids LOVE pizza! What kid doesn't? Homemade Pizza is even better. We have been enjoying making homemade pizza's for some time now. We are always coming up with new creations and today's post is our latest. My twin daughters love Shaved Asparagus Pizza, we make it quite often, and BBQ'ing Pizza is another one of our latest craves. But my 12 year old son, is Cheese-Only! When I was asked to do a review for Food Buzz with Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken, I was thrilled to create a brand new pizza recipe.

We often use ready made pizza crust, just as we did this time. One of my daughters is gluten-free (not by choice) and I buy her gluten-free crust, and then regular crust for the rest of the family. This recipe is so simple and the taste was out-of-this world. I have to be honest I have never purchased the Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken, but I was so impressed with the taste. I've made 3 more items with this chicken since and it will be a permanent staple in our house from now on (just bought my second bag this week).

We wanted to set out to create a BBQ Sauce Style Pizza and we succeeded beyond our wildest dreams. Even as we were creating this pizza my daughters were wondering if this was really going to taste like the BBQ pizza's they order from most restaurants, and it did! We were all so happy with the results. THANK YOU Tyson Chicken & the Food Buzz Tastemaker program for showing us this new product.

We started with an ole' family recipe of Homemade BBQ sauce to dip all the chicken strips in before making the actual pizza's. First we covered the pizza crust in olive oil and garlic, topped it with homemade Pizza Sauce, cheese and the Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Strips covered in the Homemade BBQ Sauce. The BBQ Sauce Pizza was absolutely delicious. A new family-favorite.

Chicken Pizza with Homemade BBQ Sauce
from Tina Hudgens

4-6 individual Pizza Crusts (use your own favorite crust)
1/4 cup of olive oil
1 tbsp minced garlic
Homemade Pizza Sauce (see recipe below or use your favorite jar of pizza sauce)
1/4 cup shredded pizza cheese (for each individual pizza)
1 tsp of parsley (per individual pizza crust)
Homemade BBQ Sauce (see recipe below)
4-6 strips of Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken (per individual pizza crust)

Homemade Pizza Sauce
1 (6oz) can of tomato paste
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp Oregano
1/4 tsp Basil
1/2 tsp sea salt

In a small bowl add tomato paste then add in olive oil a little at a time mixing completely. Add water next a little at a time mixing completely in between each pour. Add in the remaining ingredients and mix well. This is your homemade pizza sauce that will be spread on the pizza crusts.

Homemade BBQ Sauce
1 cup ketchup
1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp brown sugar

Whisk all together and mix with chicken strips. This homemade BBQ Sauce will be used for the chicken and to drizzle on the pizza after the entire pizza is put together.

PIZZA directions:
Heat oven to 350. Mix together 1/4 cup olive oil and 1 tbsp minced garlic; brush onto both sides of your favorite pizza crust. Take the pizza crust and spread on one side the Homemade Pizza Sauce (see above for recipe). Add about 1/4 cup of your favorite pizza cheese (more or less to your liking). Place the Tyson Grilled & Ready chicken strips, that have already been covered in the homemade BBQ Sauce onto the pizza on top of the cheese; sprinkle with a little parsley and drizzle the remaining Homemade BBQ Sauce on top of the pizza. Bake for 15-20 minutes (or what is recommend for your pizza crust) and serve hot! This is a one-of-a-kind Chicken Pizza with Homemade BBQ Sauce.
