Barbecue Chicken Pizza

Easy Barbecue Chicken Pizza, the BEST way to use up that leftover chicken!

If you're looking for a quick and delicious dinner, this Barbecue Chicken Pizza is it!  We've eaten it multiple times in the last couple of weeks.

I've made it using different crusts each time.  I even made a diet version using the Flat-Out Bread and low fat cheese.  I used both pre-cooked chicken from the freezer and leftover barbecue chicken breasts and it has been awesome each time.

When assembling the pizza, I didn't really measure my ingredients, I just used what looked right.

Ingredients needed:
Pizza crust of choice
3/4 to 1 cup of chopped or shredded cooked chicken
about 1/3 of a red onion, diced
+/- 1/4 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce (My favorite is Head Country BBQ sauce)
1/2 to 3/4 cup of shredded Colby Jack cheese

Spread the bbq sauce over your crust, then spread the chicken and onion over the sauce.  Drizzle with more bbq sauce if needed and top with cheese.  Bake according to the instructions for your crust.  (For the pre-cooked crust I in the pictures, I baked it 425 for 10 to 12  minutes.)
