This is one of those recipes that is almost embarrassing for me to put on my website. The reason? It’s so dang easy! But if I know anything about motherhood (and I definitely know something about motherhood), it’s that when it comes to cooking, we all like “easy.” This is also a recipe that the kids love to prepare with me. Why not bring the whole family in the kitchen and whip up this delicious take on the same-old pizza?
One pizza crust (I make my own, but you can also use the kind in a tube that you whack on the counter)
1 jar of BBQ sauce
1 yellow onion
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1-2 cups Colby Jack cheese, grated
leftover Rotisserie chicken (or one bag of frozen veggie chicken pieces)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Halve the onion, slice it, and place in a medium pan with the oil. Roll out the pizza crust and cook until it is firm but not golden. While the crust is cooking, cook the onion in the oil over medium heat until it is beginning to caramelize (starting to look brown). Remove crust from oven and spread the sauce on it. Top it with chicken, onion slices, and grated cheese. Put the pizza back into the oven and cook until the cheese is melted. This is delicious served with broccoli slaw and corn on the cob.
