This homemade barbecue chicken pizza is super simple to make and so much more delicious than delivery! It’s a homemade flatbread crust topped with barbecue sauce, cheese, red onion, and of course, chicken!
Place the chicken breasts on a baking sheet. Rub with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast until the thickest part of the breast registers 165°F, 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 15 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, remove skins and shred chicken with two forks. Set aside until ready to use. This can be made two days ahead and kept cold in an airtight container.
To make the barbecue sauce, stir together the ketchup, mustard, molasses, apple cider vinegar, paprika, cayenne, liquid smoke, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine and set aside.
To make pizza, preheat the oven to 400°F with a pizza stone. Roll out dough into one large 18-inch circle or two smaller 12-inch circles. If you don’t have a pizza stone, roll pizza dough onto a baking pan. Once at the desired size, bake pizza crust until set and dry to the touch, 7 minutes. Remove from oven and cool slightly.
Spread an even layer of barbecue sauce on top of the baked crust (½ cup on smaller crusts and ¾ cup on larger). Top with shredded chicken, onion, and cheese. Bake until the cheese is melted and golden, 18 minutes.
Remove from oven, cool 5 minutes, and cut into pieces.
