Barbecue Chicken Pizza
1 chicken breast
2/3 cup of Heinz Chili Sauce
1 cup BBQ Sauce
6-8 fresh basil leaves
4 thin slices of red onion
1 cup of mozzarella, shredded
2 cans of Pillsbury Refrigerated Pizza Crust
You didn’t think I was actually going to knead my own pizza dough for this recipe? Obviously, a brilliant individual in the product development division at Pillsbury established that at times smart SAHMs need shortcuts when cooking.This isn’t a fancy recipe (not that I am implying that any of my recipes are) but my husband really enjoys this pizza and to let him know that he still has some decision making power I am adding this recipe for him. Although, it may just become a fave in your house too and is best enjoyed with a bottle glass of wine.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.Lightly grease two baking sheets with cooking spray and pre-bake the crusts for 5 minutes before assembling your pizza.Season your chicken breast with salt and black pepper.If you are using a fairly decent BBQ sauce you shouldn’t need any additional seasoning. Grill, bake, or pan-fry your chicken breast and once it has cooled, slice it or chop it into cubes and set it aside.In a small mixing bowl, mix together the chili sauce and the BBQ sauce.Stack your fresh basil leaves one on top of another so they are in a uniform stack. Beginning at one side of the stack, roll the leaves lengthwise as if you were rolling a...cigar, then slice into thin pieces. Layer your pre-baked crusts with the sauce mixture, chicken, onions, fresh basil and cheese.Bake for 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees.Transfer the pizzas onto a cutting surface or board then slice, serve, devour and repeat.

"Pick up a take 'n' bake pizza crust and ask for the plain dough and toppings to be wrapped up separately To Go. This way you can assemble your own version at home!"
